In June 2010 after a 15yr long investigation, the FBI arrested & convicted 11 covert Russian SVR agents – referred to as the “Illegals” – who were operating the largest foreign intelligence network discovered on American soil since the Cold War.
The SVR spelled out the purpose of the Illegals’ generational presence in America in a 2009 message sent by Moscow Center which was intercepted and decrypted by the FBI:
The sexy Anna Chapman initially dominated the headlines surrounding that spy ring…
5) I think its easy to surmise why the media was focused on Anna…
6) By 2012, BBC was doing a stylistically produced expose on the spy ring.
Within BBC report, FBI assistant Dir of counter-intel Frank Figliuzzi offered a bombshell: Decades long counter-intel work had to abruptly stop since, “They were getting close enough to a sitting U.S. cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow it to continue.”
8) This caused the myopically sex-obsessed media to literally make up a quote from Figliuzzi, alleging that “the glamorous Russian spy” Anna Chapman was “close to seducing” a sitting cabinet member.
By the next day, US officials were having to correct the false claims and pointed to another SVR agent named in the indictments, Cynthia Murphy.
Cynthia Murphy was a female Russian sleeper agent posing as an American accountant by using the stolen identity of a deceased American child. Cynthia, and her ‘dead double’ identity was actually detailed extensively by BBC. Again, see here:
1) Murphy in 2009 had burrowed her way into the employ of a major Democratic donor/fundraiser. The fundraiser was Alan Patricof & the target & sitting US Cabinet member was Hillary Clinton at Department of State.
The 2010 FBI affidavit shows Murphy & Moscow Center discussing the account with Patricof as major breakthrough via intercepted electronic communications…
… and also show some of the specific taskings related to State Department.
Here’s Figliuzzi one more time for clarity, as contrasted against Hillary’s claims in 2010, and recent denials to even speak on the subject in 2017.
You’d think that one of the most important U.S. counterintelligence stings in history (admittedly cut short due to SVR proximity to HRC at DoS) might receive a LITTLE more scrutiny considering the timing of Bubba’s $500k check and call from Putin..
… and also considering just some of the other ISSUES surrounding the Clintons and Russia at the time.
Michael Waller does a good job of summarizing the issues surrounding the events in 2010 while also raising several salient questions. I urge you to absorb them before moving on…
Because while the MEDIA dropped the Russian Spy-Ring story as soon as it was irreparably and hopelessly connected to the Clintons, the FBI was only just getting started…
Behind the public charade of “returning Russian spies” & “closing down” the investigation, FBI was covertly honing in on even larger SVR targets which had been identified within the network, namely Russian diplomats IGOR SPORYSHEV, & VICTOR PODOBNYY.
20) The FBI would outdo itself in the case following the Illegals’ arrest by going after even bigger targets (diplomats) using even wilder surveillance techniques: clandestine recordings obtained WITHIN THE “SECURE” NYC SVR HEADQUARTERS.
21) Obtaining recordings from WITHIN the secure SVR headquarters in NYC is and was a intelligence coup of the highest order. The entire Russian HQ itself is a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) supposedly safe from FBI electronic eavesdropping.
How was FBI able to penetrate “secure” SVR HQ? The affidavit details 3 agents careful about electronic comms. The NOC (non official cover) Buryakov would pass analog info to diplomatic cover agents Sporyshev/Podobny who had access to HQ to transmit secure messages to Russia.
SVR agents had “walked into a FBI trap”, wherein Russians were tricked into trying to recruit a FBI “dangle” who then passed wired binders that were taken inside/out of the SVR headquarters to obtain sensitive recordings.
Interestingly, the FBI affidavit makes no mention of how the SVR HQ recordings were obtained, nor any mention of an FBI asset/”dangle” subject to recruitment. The only significant target of recruitment within the Buryakov indictment is listed as a simple witness, “Male-1”.
This simple witness “Male-1” would later be infamously outted in April of 2017 as Carter Page.
In recruitment of @carterwpage, SVR agents discuss:
1) Conversations w/Page via email in Russian
2) Page travelling to Russia “more often” than the agents
3) Millions of dollars in operational outlays for “enthusiastic” Page
4) Attempts to obtain valuable documents from Page
Considering depth of recruitment details & associations Page had w/SVR in 2013 (dwarfing anything he did in 2016) it might be germane to now ask WHY he wasn’t placed under FISA surveillance AT THAT TIME?
How do we know he wasn’t?
It would’ve been disclosed in his 2016 FISA applications, by law.
Perhaps the FBI had reason to trust simple-witness Carter Page. Perhaps the FBI was aware of his background as a midshipman from the Naval Academy who participated in the distinguished graduate TRIDENT SCHOLAR PROGRAM…
Or perhaps the FBI was aware of Page’s work as a MILITARY INTELLIGENCE OFFICER for a UN peacekeeping mission in Morocco that won him a prized international affairs fellowship w/the Council on Foreign Relations.
Whatever the REASON for FBI trusting Page, & whether or not it had anything to do w/his lifelong home in MILITARY INTELLIGENCE, & whether or not it WAS PAGE who passed the hot BINDERS (not ‘information’) to SVR agents, one fact remains undisputed…
Chronological accounting of Buryakov affidavit shows SVR HQ recordings ONLY EXIST precisely within EXACT time-frame of Page’s involvement in the case (Jan-June 2013). Likewise NO such recordings exist ANYWHERE OUTSIDE of Page’s involvement in the case. https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/opa/press-releases/attachments/2015/01/26/buryakov-complaint.pdf …
After military-intel asset Carter Page’s debriefing by FBI, all SVR recordings cease. All chronological activity detailed in the case also goes cold for 9mos. Due to Carter’s work, the FBI already has unprecedented evidence. But the FBI was still not finished with the case…
Some rare calls involving diplomat IGOR SPORYSHEV speaking on open lines to non-official-cover BURYAKOV were made in April 2014. Such calls were a severe breach in operational security that led to FBI discovering the SVR cell was feverish about “economic sanctions” on Russia.
Armed w/the knowledge of the SVR interest in sanctions, a new plan was hatched. Now the FBI had the angle with which to enter a 2nd daring phase of the operation. (h/t to @DawsonSField)
As set forth below, commencing in the Summer of 2014, the SVR agent met several times w/a FBI Confidential Source (CS-1) posing as a REPRESENTATIVE of a WEALTHY BUSINESSMAN looking to DEVELOP CASINOS WITH RUSSIAN BANKS. One guess who the CS-1 was “representing”.
A flurry of activity began late July and lasted thru late August. What was going on around that time? Only one week prior on July 12th Donald Trump publicly announced he would close his Atlantic City Casino by Sept 15 without buyer or expansion plans.
Ten days after the public funding crisis is intentionally disclosed the FBI CS-1 contacts Buryakov presumably out-of-the-blue via phone & email. Operative Buryakov already senses “some sort of a set up”, a “trap of some sort”…
Nevertheless, SPORYSHEV acting as Buryakov’s SVR handler, “permitted” the meeting. Why put field agent at risk despite his better instincts? Again, it was the “associate” and/or wealthy developer of casinos CS-1 was “representing” that was of interest.
On July 25 2014, a FBI CS-1 posing as a representative for Trump met with agent Buryakov at his VneshEconomBank (VEB) office & explained Trump was interested in developing casinos in Russia. The CS invited the SVR agent to his office in Atlantic City.
On August 8, the CS took SVR agent Buryakov on a 7hr tour of casinos in Atlantic City. He gave a powerpoint presentation in his office. He introduced the subject of “sanctions” & also presented Buryakov w/purported classified information relating to sanctioned Russians.
Three weeks later, the CS met again with Buryakov, passing him additional, purportedly classified documents regarding sanctions on Russian banks, entrapping the SVR agent into yet another documented act by FBI.
So who is this CS-1, able to pose as a “representative” of Trump? Who also had the stones to con SVR agents for 7hrs while wearing a wire? Who also was able adequately explain a made-up scheme to finance developments using sanctioned Russian banks?
Without making any allegations, I’d like you to turn you attention to one Felix Sater.
Unlike the demure “Male-1” government “witness” Carter Page, “Confidential Source” Felix Sater is (now) an openly acknowledged, decades long, multi-agency, undercover-operator “Supreme” for the Federal Government.
Its hard to emphasize the richness of Sater’s life. A best-selling book *will* be written on this man. It’s mind boggling. Here are some of his first missions, at 30 years old, after being cold-approached by the Defense Intelligence Agency.
While Sater was developing intel overseas for DIA in 1998, at home FBI was asking questions about his past. After failing to pay dues on a storage unit in NYC, authorities were alerted to evidence tying Sater to a stock fraud w Italian/Russian mob. http://archive.is/xypKS
Sater was facing charges of securities fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, felony threats, & unlawful possession of firearms.
After Sater was located by FBI, he turned himself in without a fight. Always on the hustle, Felix had just obtained his TRUMP CARD from an Afghan intelligence officer: 5 sat-phone numbers belonging to Bin Laden that he would use to help broker a deal.
On December 10, 1998, Felix Sater pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge pursuant to a cooperation agreement w/the FBI. Sater was facing 20 years imprisonment and $60 million in restitution to numerous victims.
In lieu of Sater’s deal, FBI agreed to drop all heretofore disclosed crimes in exchange for a single RICO charge. FBI also agreed to defer sentencing for a period of 10 years during Sater’s “cooperation”, after which a reduced sentence would be possible, but not guaranteed.
The Supervising US Attorney overseeing Felix Sater’s 1998 cooperation agreement was Andrew Weissmann, current lead prosecutor of the Mueller Probe.
With no guarantee of reduced sentence, Sater had motivation to produce for the Feds. And produce he did. In 2000 his cooperation secured Loretta Lynch the conviction of 19 high-ranking members of the Sicilian Mafia.
Post 9/11, Sater reported results of coalition bombings, kills on battlefield, financial networks behind the 9/11 bombers & other al-Qaeda members globally, and more…
In 2002 Felix Sater reported that jihadists were hiding in a hut outside Bagram Air Base planning to shoot down Powell’s plane during a January 2002 visit to Afghanistan.
In 2004, Felix Sater persuaded a source in Russia’s foreign military intelligence to hand over the name and photographs of a North Korean military operative who was purchasing equipment to build the country’s nuclear arsenal.
In 2005, Felix Sater went undercover in Cyprus & Istanbul to catch Russian and Ukrainian cybercriminals. Sater posed as a money launderer to help nab the suspects for washing funds stolen from US financial institutions.
Over Sater’s 10 years of cooperation he ended up providing so much valuable information to multiple U.S. intelligence agencies across so many jurisdictions, he earned the code-name “The Quarterback”
Said a top intelligence official working directly on terror cases before & after 9/11, “Felix likely does not realize how important his work has been in saving American lives. Sater deserves a commendation.”
Felix *has* reportedly received commendation. His Rabbi explains how he was invited to a closed-door meeting at the Federal Building in NY, where dozens of US intelligence community members from multiple agencies praised Sater in a private ceremony.
11 years after he started cooperating, Sater headed to a federal courthouse in Brooklyn in October 2009 for his sentencing in the stock fraud scheme. Two federal prosecutors (one later becoming a Senator) & 4 FBI agents showed up to vouch for him.
For the multi-million scheme for which Sater was facing statutory penalties of 20 years imprisonment and $60 million in restitution to victims, he was sentenced to zero days confinement and fined $25,000.
@felixsater cooperates with FBI & DOJ to the present day, per testimony to House Intel Committee. He doesn’t disclose details, except to say he works on “international matters.” 2 US officials confirmed Sater continues to be a reliable asset.
Everyone still following? Great. Because the Never-Ending Story only gets MORE interesting from here…
Even more fantastic than Felix Sater’s exploits as a 20+year military intelligence asset are the extraordinary feats the Government has employed to legally protect their agent. These actions span a decade and run all the way to the US Supreme Court.
It began in May 2010 when a former partner filed a RICO complaint against Sater & other defendants. Attached to the complaint were exhibits & explicit references to sealed materials from Sater’s prior criminal case & cooperation agreement.
n the suit, it was being alleged that Sater, after pleading to the initial RICO scheme of 93-98, turned around and ran an even larger RICO scheme from 02-07, all while moonlighting as an undercover intelligence asset.
The same Judge Glasser who presided over Sater’s secret prior RICO case was assigned the new RICO case. He immediately issued a permanent injunction against the dissemination/use of Sater’s prior case details within the new Bayrock suit.
The hearings to seal were conducted ex-parte, & when petitioners sought to introduce evidence Judge Glasser threatened quasi-criminal sanctions for “vexatious litigation” & held the submissions inadmissible. https://c10.nrostatic.com/sites/default/files/Palmer-Petition-for-a-writ-of-certiorari-14-676.pdf … (p.38)
The secrecy order was immediately appealed. Representing the Government was Loretta Lynch. Representing Sater were two colleagues of Lynch from the Eastern District US Attorney’s office, appearing as personal attorneys for Felix Sater.
Appellate courts upheld the secrecy order, appointing a Special Master to oversee its enforcement. In addition, the Orders themselves discussing the specific reasons for continued sealing were issued under seal, and remain under seal to this day.
With the secrecy order upheld by the appellate courts, Sater moved the special master Judge for contempt sanctions in 2012.
Agreeing with Sater, the special master asked the Justice Department multiple times to pursue criminal contempt charges against the attorneys suing Sater. Strangely, every time, local federal prosecutors recused themselves over unspecified conflicts.
After waiting years for criminal sanctions that never came, miring the case for years 2013-2015, the racketeering suit then resumes in a labyrinth of motions until settlement in February of 2018.
In the meantime, Kriss’ attorneys would also file a case with the US supreme court in 2014. And while the case definitely contains some fascinating questions of law…
… the Kriss attorneys again leverage the filing as a vehicle to circumvent sealing orders precluding the public from learning about Sater. They use the SCOTUS filing to introduce scandalous accusations.
Kriss attorneys also file a qui tam case in 2015, committing further abuse of process upon the courts which cause the case to be dismissed. But not without the intended publicity.
There are enough fascinating questions of law surrounding Felix Sater, and more specifically the Second Circuit, to fill a volume. Legal Beagles like my friends @Techno_Fog & @Barnes_Law can feast to your heart’s content here:
Despite gov efforts to keep a legal lid on its relations w/Sater, by Feb 2015 the disclosures and efforts by 2 attorneys had breached the media at large & reached the Senate.
In mid 2015 Trump announced his bid for the presidency. Media interest into any and all Trump associates motivated the AP and various other parties to aggressively file for unsealing of Sater’s prior secret conviction.
After inauguration in 2017, the coordinated effort to unseat Trump only intensified, and with it, scrutiny into Felix Sater.
Frothing media interest in 2017 would eventually cause the original Special Master to recuse/appoint another, who would eventually rule in favor or unsealing several documents on 2/10/18.
The Feb 2018 unsealing caused Felix Sater to move and “get ahead of the story”, as detailed to Cuomo here in March.
The result was the Buzzfeed expose where Sater granted Cormier & Leopold a month of exclusive interviews. In exchange for access, a positive media piece was timed to publish at the same time his confidential case details were being unsealed.
The Buzzfeed expose is published on Monday (03/12/18), and by week’s end Felix Sater has gone on a media orgy, taping 4 prime-time interviews in 2 days. Again, there was Cuomo w/CNN on 03/16…
Chris Hayes w/MSNBC on 03/16…
George Stephanopoulos w/ABC on 03/16…
Jesse Watters w/FOX on 03/17…
Now that we’ve established Felix Sater’s bonafides and the government’s fierce protection, its time to take the long view and recap everything in the Never-Ending Story thus far:
11 SVR agent’s arrested/deported in ILLEGAL’S case after getting to close to Clinton. The FBI continued into the BURYAKOV case resulting in arrest of 3 more SVR agents. In Buryakov, the FBI used Trump associates Page/Sater as assets.
Let us now meditate on at least 9 astronomically unlikely coincidences, or findings of fact, that bind Carter Page & Felix Sater (and ONLY Page/Sater), the two assumed assets operative in Buryakov:
I of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater worked for Military Intelligence. The military work was initial, and preceded their later work with FBI.
II of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater have then done work for FBI that was directly responsible for conviction of Russian foreign agents.
III of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater’s “work” for FBI has been “verified”/acknowledged by the Federal Government.
IV of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater went on one-man media-tour of interviews, purportedly in their own limited self-interest, immediately after being outed as Federal assets of the highest order.
V of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater’s identities are protected at great expense by the Federal government.
VI of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater have been entangled in “secret court” proceedings, the fog of which allows extra-judicial, clandestine executive operations.
VII of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater are rarified ‘associates’ of Trump whilst also maintaining direct physical operational proximity to Trump and Trump Tower.
VIII of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater initially appeared & CONTINUE TO REMAIN the strongest connections to actual “Russian collusion” surrounding Trump, despite the media having grown weary of said connections after knowledge of their ‘cooperation’.
IX of IX: Both Carter Page & Felix Sater are ‘coincidentally’ at the heart of #CrossfireHurricane, both have been interviewed by Mueller, & neither look anywhere close to catching charges.
And if you think the coincidental military intelligence backgrounds, the government protection, the associations to Trump, & the manifest ‘innocence’ of these two spooky characters is wild, believe me when I tell you this Never-Ending Story ONLY GETS BETTER… (cont.)
ACT II: THE OPENING OF OPERATION CROSSFIRE HURRICANE
You are Here…
2015: SETTING UP THE CHESSBOARD: The following actions in early 2015 will all foreshadow issues central to OPERATION CROSSFIRE HURRICANE for the next 5 years. Pay attention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHydkEARVKE …
JANUARY: Op Buryakov is closed. FBI charges 3 Russians w espionage, secured by the work of our confirmed witness Carter Page & our presumed Confidential Source Felix Sater. These two names from Op Buryakov will star heavily in Op Crossfire Hurricane.
FEBRUARY: DOJ confronted about Sater. Loretta Lynch is asked about Sater’s unconstitutional waiver of $40m in victim restitution during confirm testimony p142. Government affirms its protection of Felix. His impending March 2019 testimony looms.
MARCH: Clinton’s Gross Negligence Breach Revealed. NYT first reveals Clinton exclusively used personal email to conduct all of her business at State. Issues pertaining to FBI conduct surrounding the case will continue to unravel throughout 2019.
APRIL: IRA Troll Farm is Public News. In April, the Guardian details (link) public knowledge social media operations outfit IRA. ODNI Clapper blabbers on how “one day they’re fine, and then…” the next they’re convenient scapegoats for Mueller.
MAY: Kim DotCom accurately predicts the entirety of the 2016 election and its aftermath before anybody even had any “theories” of DNC hacking. If you still haven’t watched the video interview with Bloomberg. It’s imperative you do it now (link).
JUNE: The board has been set. Trump Announces his Candidacy.
PLACING THE PIECES: Donald Trump combines forces with Felix Sater, surrounding himself with a team of former DOJ attorneys, FBI agents, and intelligence community operatives. Because what has worked in the Past, can work in the Future.
THE BISHOPS: As detailed earlier, 2 of Lynch’s DOJ colleagues left Fed service to join the law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where they represented Sater at his 2009 sentencing, and also his appeals cases in 2011 *in concert* w Loretta Lynch.
In turn, Trump’s two long-term tax-attorneys since 2005 would take partnerships at Morgan Lewis in 2015…
Then, upon assuming the presidency, Trump announces that he will retain Morgan Lewis as ethics counsel to oversee ethics issues concerning international conflicts of interest.
Curiously, on the same day that Trump made the announcement, the Moscow office of Morgan Lewis was named “Russia Law Firm of the Year” for 2016 by an industry association.
With Trump represented by Morgan Lewis, his taxes, conflicts of interest, Bayrock’s financial arrangements w Trump Org, & perhaps the source of Bayrock’s funding; all would be covered by one firm. Cummings is currently taking aim at Trump’s Bishops.
Let the games begin… this battle will roll well past 2020.
THE ROOKS: In JUNE of 2015, Trump began monthly payments to a to an A-TEAM (3 FBI, 2 LEO) who travel with Trump’s campaign from state to state providing services that are “typically handled by local law enforcement or the Secret Service”.
As luck would have it (of course), one of these former FBI special agents, Special Agen Gary Uher, just happened to be Felix Sater’s former handler from 20 years ago. But Uher was just one half of Sater’s management team, the muscle…
Who was Sater’s other handler back in 1998? The brains? Oh, its Leo Taddeo of the FBI, from the Russian organized crime squad?
I wonder what Taddeo is up to in JULY 2015? Oh. Right after the FBI opened up its case into Clinton’s email server in JULY 2015, the Special Agent in Charge of the Special Operations/Cyber Division New York Office “left for the private sector.”
THE QUEEN: Immediately after the ODNI OIG transmitted updates regarding the classification breach of Clinton’s server in AUGUST, General Michael Flynn goes to meet Trump for the first time.
The Black Knight’s Gambit: In SEPTEMBER, Felix Sater, begins yet again acting as a “representative of a wealthy investor wanting to build a properties in Russia”. An identical move to the Summer of 2014…
It’s important to note: the Buryakov Operation had been closed, and Buryakov arrested. But he still had yet to be tried. The Black Knight had no time to lose.
OCTOBER: Trump signs Letter of Intent to build Trump Moscow. Sater has the Lure. The Gambit is set. In this iteration of the scheme, Sater is broadcasting hot-keyed emails re: Russian generals, Trump, Putin, “owning elections”. Every agency on the planet is picking these up.
Indeed. Not just Agencies. We know that lower-tier CONTRACTORS were also able to access this juicy data between NOVEMBER-APRIL at an “unusually high” rate.
Indeed. Not only were CONTRACTORS accessing NSA data illegally, they were also cold-calling the Trump Campaign in the same exact time-frame, making their presence & intent laughably obvious to a defensively postured Campaign headed by ex intelligence officers…
You might even start to dream up counter-offensive maneuvers that could easily be deployed on CONTRACTORS so nakedly hungry for hot leads. It’s clear Fusion GPS had no need for they story they received in 2015. But what if offered another version?
Sater continues broadcasting SIGNT regarding TRUMP MOSCOW throughout late January whilst pumping Cohen for Trump’s passport and travel itinerary to Russia. But lest you think the Black Knight is a one-trick-pony with these Trump property stings…
At the exact same time, 2015, Felix was being paid $100k/mo to “wrangle evidence” on behalf of a bank paying him a 16% finders fee on transactions totaling $4B. Did I mention Felix was a PARTNER TO THE INITIAL DEAL? Not shabby Felix. Not shabby.
The “corporate intel firm” that BTA hired who contracted Felix? Arcanum. Take a look. I don’t even know these guys, but I’m just going guess they’re probably not bad dudes to have on your team. Half these guys probably worked at Flynn’s DIA. https://arcanumglobal.com/arcanum-team/our-leadership-team/ …
John Hannah, Cheney’s NSC Advisor and senior advisor to Arcanum, who Sater was moonlighting for in 2015, is also Talking to Mueller, in 2019. How will Trump ever recover from this?
As Sater & Cohen continue to arrange plans for a prospective Trump trip to Moscow through the end of January, Carter Page is making is introductions to the Campaign at Trump Tower via Ed Cox.
On March 2nd, 2016, Carter Page is summoned to appear before prosecutors working the Buryakov prosecution in the Southern District of New York.
The White Knight is about to be Revealed.
The White Knight is Sacrificed.
The Buryakov case had been proceeding quietly since the arrest in January 2015. It was now March 1, 2016 and all pre-trial motions were due. The Government’s Motion in Limine was tedious…
Buryakov’s motion was anything but tedious. The entire first half of argument is 100% redacted. Most of the Case Authorities are redacted. A Motion in Limine is a pre-trial motion to exclude evidence. We can only guess at what Buryakov wants excluded from the case…
This continues on for a dozen pages solid…
The non-redacted portion argues to exclude evidence regarding the SVR. Buryakov is arguing he is *not* conducting espionage, and therefore any mention about SVR or espionage is prejudicial! This is a simple FARA charge…
Everything was proceeding normal until Buryakov’s Mystery Motion. Then things really start moving. Immediately after its receipt on the 1st, Carter is summoned by FBI/SDNY prosecutors for a discussion on the 2nd.
On March 3rd is the arraignment. Buryakov pleads Not Guilty. The Russians are not going to lie down; they are angling for something. By the 7th, Buryakov is asking for pre-trial RELEASE!
At the same time, John Brennan, head of the CIA, whisks off to Moscow on an unannounced trip to meet directly at the Federal Security Service headquarters. This meeting took place during the first week of March 2016, even though it wasn’t known/acknowledged until the 28th.
These sources & methods were never revealed in the 2015 Complaint. Now the FBI says: a UCE “posing as an analyst from a NYC based energy company”. All the familiar language we’ve heard earlier. We see the Opposition cites paragraphs from the Initial Complaint (22-25).
The Opposition continues on to cite every single argument and paragraph of the Complaint, mirroring it.
A side by side forensic accounting of Complaint vs Opposition docs reveals that while nearly every single point/para of Complaint is mirrored, all mention of Carter as “MALE-1” are gone. Introduced into place is a hitherto unknown UCE that happens to mirror him uncannily.
How uncannily? Well for some reason people don’t like to admit this very often, but the SVR *was* recorded on tape proposing to offer Carter Page, the energy analyst, “millions” & “gifts” to obtain “documents”.
This just happens to be *precisely* how the UCE is being described in the Opposition doc on March 8, 2016. It’s worth noting that @carterwpage admits to passing “documents” to “Podobny”. But has anyone ever asked him, under oath, about Sporyshev?
Entertaining a notion there exists a UCE agent *aside* from MALE-1 Page. What would this mean? It would mean SVR was recruiting 2 NYC “analysts”, wining/dining them, paying $ for docs, one since 2012, but only got taped exactly in Page’s 6mos tenure.
Were these Rus diplomats that busy that they were actively courting (at least) 2 “analysts” w Intel backgrounds at the same time, by accident? Is this what we’re to believe? According to Preet! If this is the case, why then is all mention of Carter dropped from the case?
And lest you need further argument on the topic, I leave you with some exhibits from @carterwpage… He’s more than vocal and he is NOT happy with whatever happened in that meeting on March 2nd right before the UCE-1 was introduced to the world on the 8th…
Although, I’m not sure why he considers himself a “source” deserving of payment? A simple, innocent “witness” does not receive payments silly Page! He probably got confused. This *does* get confusing.
By late 2018, Cater is just plain TIRED of the charade. I won’t quote his words. You need to feel his disdain for the absurdity of the charges against him.
Comparing the initial Complaint from 2015 to the Opposition doc from March 8 2016 further… When we examine the 2nd UCE running the Casino portion of the Buryakov sting (presumed to be Felix Sater), we find several revealing details have been MASKED from the 2016 document.
In 2016 doc (Trump is nominee) all reference to “wealthy investor” or fact the UCE is working “as representative” of Associate is gone. In 2015, the “Associate” is the *reason* Buryakov’s handler tells him to proceed despite smelling a trap. In 2016? Barely an “individual”.
In the 2016 version of the Atlantic City meeting, it barely gets 1 line. In 2015 (before Trump is running) the “tour” of multi casinos lasted 7hrs ending in an “office”. In 2016 its also not told that Sporyshev demanded that the Associate “drive” the group to the meeting.
Can you think of any reason why all *these specific* details would be masked in March of 2016 but not in Jan of 2015?
One more thing they left out of BOTH versions… at the end of that all day tour of Atlantic City Casinos, Felix Sater told Buryakov that he “had contacts in the United States Government and could get more information (classified) about sanctions”. It was on August 8, 2014.
How would Sater prove to Buryakov he had contacts? He would post this confessional from his Rabbi who attended a closed-door award ceremony from multiple US Intelligence agencies that were honoring Felix…
Felix posted the video to Youtube, on August 8th, 2014, 9:36pm Eastern Time, after he had told Buryakov to look for it on his personal Youtube page, at the close of the meeting in Atlantic City alongside Donald J. Trump.
