    DOJ-FBI “Small Group” Promote Defense of Spygate Operations – Former FBI/DOJ Officials Nervous, Hiring Lawyers…

    The activity of the “small group” of coup plotters consists of three generalized subsidiary agencies: (1) DOJ/FBI, (2) CIA/ODNI, and (3) The State Department.

    Within each “small group faction” a years-long review of their narrative constructs shows the groups have specific and unique media outlets for their offensive (’16, ’17) and defensive (’18, ’19) propaganda efforts.

    •The DOJ/FBI faction of the “small group” leaks to narrative engineers at the New York Times and NBC. •The CIA/ODNI faction utilize the Washington Post and ABC; and •the State Dept. faction use CNN and CBS. Each faction uses the same reporters & pundits for their distribution. This pattern, albeit generalized, has been consistent for several years.

    The originating media entity -utilizing the leaks, opinions and agenda of the faction most concerned- starts the process. The secondary media groups come in for support – reporting on the reporting; and then reporting on the reporting of the reporting… and so on. This process provides a concentric distribution effort to bolster the originating premise.

    Similar to the Journ-o-list effort of Ezra Klein, all of the ideologically aligned reporters share information for the larger process of defending the prior activity and advancing a unified narrative. [Reference Buzzfeed’s Ali Watkins sharing leaks from SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to her peers at WaPo and New York Times while she had sex with the source to keep the information pipeline open.]

    It is important to remember this concerted process whenever we are reviewing media articles concerning the matters of interest to each of the “small group” factions.

    In essence, the propagandists within the media are the same; and the sources for the positions reflected in the articles are the same. Wash, rinse and repeat depending on the identified risk.

    So today we see NBC and the New York Times going “out front” on behalf of their interests. Referencing the faction each outlet represents we see the *reporting* is to defend the interests of the DOJ and FBI.

    The first “small group” report is from NBC. Toplines:

    • The Durham investigation is more broad and therefore more troubling.
    • Durham is moving to interview current/former CIA and current/former Intelligence Community operatives.
    • The CIA and Intelligence Community operatives are hiring lawyers prior to speaking to Durham.
    • The Durham investigation appears again looking at the ICA (Intelligence Community Assessment); which again is the part of Small Group operation which constructed the ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ (election interference) narrative.
    • The Small Group is worried the investigation has now shifted into a possible criminal probe.
    • The Small Group members themselves have NOT been questioned. This is making them nervous; hence the reporting.
    • Barr and Durham visiting Italy, the U.K. and Australia to speak with Mifsud, Halper and Downer respectively is really making the Small Group nervous.
    Here’s the key NBC paragraphs, emphasis mine:

    (Via NBC) A review launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has expanded significantly amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis, multiple current and former officials told NBC News.

    [The “multiple current and former officials” are members of the small group. Based on the outlet and the material, these members are DOJ and FBI officials].

    The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia’s effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.

    Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

    [Here we see Durham doing what we suspected five months ago. Durham is looking at who put together the December 2016, Joint Analysis Report (JAR); and the January 2017, Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA); essentially the originating documents that promoted the vast Russian conspiracy and set the cornerstone for a special counsel investigation therein.]

    With Barr’s approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter.

    [This is common sense. If the ICA is a false political document, then guess what? Yep, the entire narrative from the JAR and ICA is part of a big fraud (it is). Then the construct of the special counsel probe (remember the “originating” construct), was false. (it was)]

    […] If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.

    “I don’t know what the legal basis for this is,” Brennan said, calling the probe “bizarre.”

    […] Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.

    […] Skeptics who have been trying to track Durham’s movements say he has yet to interview key figures, including former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Stzrok and former FBI general counsel James Baker.

    [“skeptics”? Who are they? …and why are they “trying to track Durham’s movements”?]

    “Nobody who knows anything has been interviewed,” said a person in touch with those former officials.

    [So the group is talking to themselves and using a third party to push their collective discussion into the media. Important to note.]

    […] A Western intelligence official familiar with what Durham has been asking of foreign officials says his inquiries track closely with the questions raised about the Russia investigation in right-wing media.

    [So some entity in the intelligence community, likely outside the U.S. , is in contact with the small group and keeping them apprised of what Durham is doing? Interesting. Pay attention to what NBC is admitting here… Corrupt officials, co-conspirators, within the intelligence apparatus are monitoring John Durham; relaying information back to their allies; who then talk among themselves and coordinate media leaks based on the information they are able to extract from the tracking. That’s a big admission.]

    […] The Senate intelligence committee examined the allegations about Downer, Mifsud and Halper, as part of its bipartisan investigation into the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia was responsible for attacking the 2016 election, and found nothing to substantiate any wrongdoing, a committee aide said.

    [Again, notice how the small group is utilizing the SSCI, and it is a committee aide within the SSCI that is leaking to NBC. We already know the SSCI was completely compromised by the effort to remove President Trump from office. Part of that SSCI effort led to the discovery of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaking the FISA application to the media. The SSCI was/is part of the coup/impeachment effort.]

    The coup plotters are very nervous. Don't know why, no one is going to jail.

    I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but since January 2017, we have been continually hearing that "any day now", charges will be filed, and the Democrats and globalist Deep Staters will all be arrested.


    So far, absolutely nothing has happened, apart from Andrew McCabe being fired one day before his retirement, thus losing a small part of his pension.

    First we heard: "Jeff Sessions is going to prosecute the coup plotters."

    And nothing happened.

    Then we heard: "just wait for the DOJ Inspector-General's report! Horowitz is going after the coup plotters!"

    And nothing happened.

    Then we heard: "Chris Wray is in charge of the FBI now! He's going to prosecute the coup plotters! They'd better get ready to go to jail!"

    And nothing happened.

    Then we heard: "just wait! Huber (remember him?) is going to take down the Deep State!"

    And nothing happened.

    Then we heard: "Barr is going after the Deep Staters! They'd better watch out!"

    And nothing happened.




    Now we are being told "Just wait, Mr. Durham is going to bring down the Deep State!"



    I'm sorry to sound pessimistic, but I'm getting tired of being told to get my hopes up.

    Unfortunately, the Deep State coup plotters are likely to get away without any punishment. The Deep State protects it's own Swamp Creatures.

    I hope I'm wrong, and we will actually see some prosecutions.

    No need for sorrow, it seems to be your MO. We're used to it.

    He is pointing out the reality...you are generally pessimistic and dismissive when the subject comes up.

    Apparently the coup plotters take it much more seriously than you.

    Are the coup plotters taking it seriously though?


    So far they all seem to be doing fine, making lots of money and laughing at us "deplorables."

    I’m guessing you didn’t read the OP’s post, or you wouldn’t post that.

    Not usually, only towards those who will stay home next Nov to prove a point. Staying home, negates your right to complain. If I were of the persuasion to stay home, I'd do so and shut up about it, especially to those of us willing to keep fighting. Your choice!

    Yunno, I was going to put you on the ignore list a while back, but often times you surprise me and post something worth reading, so I haven't, and I've given you likes when you do. FWIW, I only have 2 on that list.

    I hate pessimism and projection, and surly wouldn't want to share a fox hole with someone of that ilk. What has been going on with the DS is a travesty, and is one of the most unfair, un-American, mean spirited attempts to overthrow our way of life. They don't do what they do against Trump, but rather all of us who love the Constitution as written. If we as a country ever want to get back to some semblance of America, we all need to put our pettiness aside and pull together, and fight back like the left does.

    When I read many posts like yours, it makes me cringe with the selfishness and narrow mindedness of the poster. We all want justice, but the DS players are not stupid and have been pulling this **** a lot longer than since Trump's arrival. You don't wake up one day as DOJ AG and say, hmmmm , today seems like a great day to start arresting the bad guys!

    If you have any chance of defeating the rigged system that has been shadowing the elected government, it takes carefull investigation, patience, and unfortunately...... TIME! Their lawyers are good and can twist the facts with the best of them. IT'S GOT TO BE IRON CLAD, and IRREFUTABLE! PERIOD!............... which are the reasons for the previous, dismal Justice track records................ but you know that and just like to *****! Orange Man Bad.

    You don't like Trump, we get it, but we could use every vote we can muster in order to defeat what will happen if he loses. If you can't see this, then I truly will use up my 3rd slot.
