A massive trove of documents was released by The Intercept on Wednesday that gave insight into the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s “secret rules,” a broad scope of powers that detailed everything from surveillance of journalists to treatment of informants.
As a government institution that is financed by American taxpayers, one might think that the FBI would be more public with its actions. However, the latest FBI files—which are classified—paint a picture of an overreaching agency that has no accountability.
Investigative Journalist Glenn Greenwald noted that these revelations carry a particularly significant weight given the latest election, and the new president:
“It shines a bright light on the vast powers of this law enforcement agency, particularly when it comes to its ability to monitor dissent and carry out a domestic war on terror, at the beginning of an era highly likely to be marked by vociferous protest and reactionary state repression.”
What do you think about these revelations? Let us know in the comments!
If it’s not clear by now that the U.S. intelligence community and nationalist U.S. elite supporting the new Trump information are engaged in civil war being fought with information, here is a view from the outside.
A former member of German parliament sees that the strife in Washington amid conflicting reports saying that Russia hacked the DNC and the U.S. despite the FBI or any other intelligence agency for that matter ever having access to the DNC’s server.
““When you see the situation in Washington, I think they are not willing, those who lost the election, to accept the new president whose name is Trump… What’s going on in Washington sounds like the beginning of a civil war,” Wimmer said.
Then there are the apparent leaks throughout the 2016 election, which as former NSA Technical Director William Binney and other intelligence officials and Judge Napolitano note, have all the markings of a massive inside intelligence leak on Hillary Clinton, the DNC, George Soros and Colin Powell.
Additionally, there are the anonymous leaks of “information” to the Washington Post like the Russians hacking the election with no proof given – just words or that incredulous list calling anyone who could source Hillary’s scandals Russian propaganda.
Finally, there is Hillary Clinton’s own FBI case which faced a number of leaks throughout the election of insiders coming out leaking what we now know as documented fact.
The fact that Hillary Clinton was under not one, but at least two separate probes by the FBI, one focusing around her server the other focusing around the Clinton Foundation which is still ongoing. The Fraudation probe I have been speaking about for as far back as it started due to my own “anonymous” sources.
FBI agents even leaked information on Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to a dormant FBI twitter account FBIVault.
There is a clear animosity growing within the government between both former and current officials just the same way as some were against Hillary Clinton some are against President-elect Donald Trump.
The only difference here is that it seems like the latter is just making up information and releasing it exhibit A.) Donald Trump’s golden shower “intelligence report.” Which now the Director of intelligence James Clapper has admitted they were trolled by 4chan. The problem lies in politicizing our Intelligence agencies and them not even fact checking how that report was believable is beyond me it reads like satire.
Even Intercept Pulitzer prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has noticed the deep-states growing war on Donald Trump.
“In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.” Glenn Greenwald, writes.
I’ll go one step further in the 1930’s only 30 years prior to President Dwight Eisenhower, General Smedley Butler under President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt warned of a fascist takeover in America in which a group of conspirators sought to involve him in overthrowing then President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt. “The plan that was outlined to me was to form an organization of veterans to use as a buffer or a club at least to intimidate the government,” Smedley Butler said broadcast on every television nationwide. One of the people involved in that coup was Bush’s grandfather Prescott Bush according to the BBC it’s also well known that Prescott Bush funded Hitler’s rise to power mere years later so the list of treason against humanity spans deep on him.
It’s true that history repeats itself whistle-blowers and people stand against corruption and coups back to Hillary Clinton in the months before the election another former government official Steve Pieczenik came out and said that “Hillary Clinton had attempted a civilian coup and there was a subsequent anti-coup enacted within various intelligence agencies” this confirmed information I had received as far back as March from various sources that showed there was a massive influx of former and current government officials/military who were displeased with Hillary Clinton they even labeled her as a national security insider threat.
I Have All these Ex Military and Feds Telling Me How Absolutely Corrupt @HillaryClinton Is My Question Is Why Not Do Something About it?
Now back to Trump as Glenn Greenwald notes, “there is no bigger favor that Trump opponents can do for him than attacking him with such lowly, shabby, obvious shams, recruiting large media outlets to lead the way. When it comes time to expose actual Trump corruption and criminality, who is going to believe the people and institutions who have demonstrated they are willing to endorse any assertions no matter how factually baseless, who deploy any journalistic tactic no matter how unreliable and removed from basic means of ensuring accuracy?”
It comes back to that old story that you were told when you were a kid the boy who cried wolf except this time it’s the CIA and Democrats who cried “Russia” attempting to bring us back into cold war territory. If there was any doubt that there was a deep-state shadow government those doubts should be thrown out the window with Chuck Schumer issuing a warning to Trump, telling Rachel Maddow that “Trump was being really dumb challenging the intelligence community and they can hit back.” then there is the shadowy group that would meet to discuss HIllary Clinton’s case as documented by the FBI called the “7th Floor Group.”
As Greenwald further notes, “no one in the intelligence community was elected by the American people” they were selected. Many have a long standing ovation for pushing for wars and regime change as General Wesley Clark exposed in 2007, with his famous “5 years, seven countries” speech exposing someone in the Pentagon having such a monstrous plan, but there are a few defectors in high-ranking positions of power that are prepared to defend this country against enemies both foreign and domestic as many took that oath to do. For proof of this you can see this article on Anonymous within the U.S. military including in those ranks are high ranking NCOs uncommissioned officers. As the late ex-FBI Ted L. Gunderson released in a document Operation Vampire Killer (OVM) or the police and military against the New World Order is in effect.
Here are some hundred academic documents proving the new world order exist, what the actual plot is has long been speculation of the internet but the focus is not what the plot may be although Aaron Russo alleged before he died that the end goal was microchipping the populace to control them, the main focus should be that such a plot exist.
Is Donald Trump legit does he threaten this structure and plan? George Bush Sr. gave a cut throat to Trump captured on live TV. Time will tell if Trump really does want to drain the swamp one thing is for sure this war with the CIA deep-state shadow government is only just getting started we need to listen to whistle-blowers as they protect our very fabric of democracy and liberty, what’s left of it at least.
The international whistle-blower organization Wikileaks announced that the FBI has quietly released a fifth set of documents in its Hillary Clinton investigation, and wait until you see what they tried to sweep under the rug.
FBI quietly releases new Hillary Clinton investigation documents (part 5) [as yet, no announcement] https://t.co/lmyWF5rA8H
The new release by the FBI is a 299 page report on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server. While unconfirmed, these documents becoming public are likely a result of another FOIA request by Judicial Watch.
So far what has been found is that emails from Sidney Blumenthal “contained classified information.”
Also found is a passage that says, “Due to the extremely sensitive nature of this investigation and the damage its disclosure could cause the case will be designated as a prohibited investigation in accordance with the counterintelligence policy implementation guide.” The document also states “the author request Assistant Director concurrence to maintain the identified case as prohibited.”
Did you read that red box above? It seems the initial FBI investigation was never set up to be investigated – merely a false public pretend-investigation that ultimately failed because of the public demanded real accountability following Wikileaks, the DNCLeaks, DNCLEAKS2 and John Podesta’s emails.
Now this investigation has been reopened, and as I have been saying since all of this started, the FBI is investigating way more than Clinton – they are investigating the vehicle that Chris Ortel has called a fraud: the Clinton Foundation is being investigated for fraud, embezzlement, and other illegal practices. This release by the FBI exposes Comey, who said that “there had to be evidence that Mrs. Clinton intentionally transmitted or willfully mishandled classified information. The F.B.I. found neither, and as a result, he said, “our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
The report later goes onto say, “USIC (U.S. Intelligence Community) determined that 81-email chains and an additional 2,000 emails contained classified information, 68 of which remain classified to this day.”
This FBI document also exposes that the FBI counter-terrorism division is involved in the investigation of Hillary Clinton, probably for her funding from Saudi Arabia and Qatar who she admitted was knowingly funding ISIS in Wikileaks emails. Then there is a part of the document that alleges that there is another investigation ongoing besides the CTD investigation. This is likely the Clinton Foundation investigation that the MSM constantly says doesn’t exist but guess what it does!
Page 213 exposes that the FBI requested 912 different email addresses that were sought in the investigation trying to identify recipients.
Stay tuned to We Are Change where we will bring you up to date information on the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
(We Are Change) — New details are emerging about the suspect in the shooting that left five people dead at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday. Esteban Santiago-Ruiz has been described as a former soldier who sought psychological treatment after a tour in Iraq, and who told the FBI that he was being forced to fight for the Islamic State.
The suspect’s aunt, Maria Ruiz Rivera, told NJ Advance Media that Santiago-Ruiz “lost his mind” during a year-long tour of duty in Iraq five years ago, and was hospitalized for mental health issues as a result.
KTUU, the NBC affiliate in Anchorage, reported that Santiago-Ruiz left the Alaska Army National Guard in August 2016, and provided the following list of highlights from his time in the military:
Joined the Puerto Rico National Guard Dec. 14, 2007
Deployed to Iraq with Puerto Rico National Guard April 23, 2010 to February 19, 2011
Was in the Army Reserves prior to joining the Alaska Army National Guard Nov. 21, 2014
Received a general discharge from the Alaska Army National Guard Aug. 16, 2016 for unsatisfactory performance
He was a combat engineer (MOS: 21B10)
When he was discharged, his military rank was E3 (Private First Class)
CBS News reported that the Fort Lauderdale shooting suspect had a history with the FBI, and that in November 2016, he walked into an FBI office in Anchorage and said he “was being forced to fight for ISIS.”
NEW: In Nov. 2016, FLL suspect walked into FBI office in Anchorage, claiming he was being forced to fight for ISIS, sources tell CBS News.
Santiago-Ruiz’s brother, Bryan Santiago, told NJ Advance Media that Esteban was living in Alaska and receiving psychological treatment, but said he was not aware of the specific details surrounding the treatment.
The suspect also had a history with Homeland Security. CBS Miami reported that Santiago-Ruiz was “investigated by Homeland Security Investigations for child porn,” in 2011 or 2012. As a result of the investigation, “three weapons and a computer were seized, but there was not enough evidence to prosecute.”
Detailing the shooting, Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca told the Associated Press that Santiago-Ruiz flew in on an Air Canada flight, and then retrieved a gun from his checked bag and loaded it in the restroom.
U.S. intelligence agencies declassified a report today, claiming it proves Vladimir Putin directly ordered the hacking during the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win.
(We Are Change) — Russian President Putin “ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election,”according to U.S. intelligence officials, who declassified a report on Friday.
In the report it is claimed that the secret Russian operation consisted of hacking Democratic individuals and groups—more specifically Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta—and releasing that information via third-party websites like WikiLeaks.
“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election,” the report said.
“We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.”
The intelligence report called this “a significant escalation” in ongoing Russian efforts to undermine“the US-led liberal democratic order.”
“We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him,” according to the report.
“All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.”
The report was issued shortly after Donald Trump met with top intelligence officials in New York for a briefing. Trump spoke to The New York Times by phone for three hours before he was set to be briefed.
“China, relatively recently, hacked 20 million government names,” Trump said.
“How come nobody even talks about that? This is a political witch hunt.”
The President-elect also made a statement regarding a recent Buzzfeed article that caused a dispute between the DNC and FBI over the investigation into Russian hacking of DNC servers.
After the president-elect was briefed by U.S. intelligence officials, Trump said: “While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines.”
Seven pages of the report were devoted to RT and its influence on the U.S. election “by serving as a platform for Kremlin messaging to Russian and international audiences.”
According to U.S. intelligence officials, RT’s pro-Trump campaign began in March 2016 by “consistently” displaying Trump “as the target of unfair coverage from traditional US media outlets” that were “subservient to a corrupt political establishment.”
DNI claims RT is reason Hillary lost election. They start by naming 2 shows that haven't been on air in over year https://t.co/lQqv6jnc2k
To be clear, the DNI report did not provide any hard evidence of Russian hacking and relied on analyses from the CIA, FBI and NSA. The CIA and FBI have “high confidence” in the results of the report, while the NSA only has “moderate confidence.”
“Disclosures through WikiLeaks did not contain any evident forgeries,” the report admitted, contradicting previous claims made by the Clinton campaign.
