Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This past week was the second straight during which multiple major new revelations about “Spygate” – the Obama Administration’s effort to fix the 2016 election and subsequent plot to execute a coup d’etat on a sitting POTUS – came to public light. You can find last week’s review at this link. Here follows a review of what we learned during the course of this week.
First, Maria Bartiromo interviewed George Papadopoulous – one of the main targets of the FBI/CIA’s entrapment efforts against Trump officials – on her Sunday morning program, along with Devin Nunes. Here’s a clip of the full episode, in which Papadopoulous details multiple efforts by U.S. agencies to entrap him into some criminal act or admission, and in which Nunes details his suspicion that at least one spy deployed by the FBI/CIA also works as an operative for Russian intelligence.:
Next up, Attorney General William Barr acknowledged again his ongoing investigation into the real origins of the Obama spying operations, and how high the conspiracy went within the Obama Administration.:

Later on Wednesday, the reliable news-fakers at the New York Times did their best to set a favorable narrative to Spygate on behalf of the Deep State, but really only succeeded in confirming that it the FBI was spying on the Trump Campaign throughout 2016, using multiple operatives.:

I missed this when it was published on Friday, but National Review obtained a copy of the recent congressional testimony by FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Jonathan Moffa, and it is extremely revelatory. Moffa’s testimony makes it crystal clear that the FBI was coordinating with the CIA during 2016, and he admits that their spying operation ran multiple different operatives at Papadopoulous and other Trump Campaign officials in their entrapment efforts. Amazing.:

It all becomes very convoluted and confusing, because the Obama-era bad actors had so many different angles going on targeting the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and really starting in late 2015. The guys over at the Conservative Treehouse have an outstanding, detailed explanation of how it all played out at this link.
These two paragraphs from that piece sum up the bifurcated, coordinated effort between the CIA and FBI very succinctly:
♦The CIA track took place between March and July 2016, and consisted of using foreign intelligence allies in Italy, the U.K and Australia to create a background illusion of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign. This operation was based on earlier -more innocuous- contacts from various countries, weaponized and redeployed in what everyone calls “spygate”. This track successfully culminated in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.
♦The FBI track was domestic-centric, albeit sub-contracted to Fusion GPS and later a former British intelligence officer, and took place between April and October 2016; also to create the illusion of Russian involvement. This operation is best known around the Steele Dossier and FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page. The FBI track continued with the Mueller investigation into 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Read the whole piece and keep it bookmarked – it will provide a great reference point to go back to as things continue to publicly unfold in the coming weeks and months.
That is all.
