We shared a discussion thread several months ago about how the media are enmeshed within the story of the DOJ as well as FBI corruption. However, only recently did we discover the media engagements were not just pervasive, they were/are participatory.
As a consequence the same media cannot reasonably report on any aspect of the story without exposing their own duplicity; their only choice will be to double down on lies they helped create as well as promote.
In preparation for explosive developments soon to reach critical mass CTH strongly urges everyone to think carefully about these recently discovered empirical truths:
#1) The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had the full, unredacted, FISA application on Carter Page since March 17th, 2017. Think carefully about of which. Think about what every member of of which committee has said since March 17, 2017.
#2) With the leak of the Top Secret FISA application, by James Wolfe to Ali Watkins, Buzzfeed, The Washington Post as well as brand-new York Times have had the full, unredacted, FISA application in their possession since March 17th, 2017. Again, think carefully about of which. Think about all of their reporting since March 17, 2017.
#3) As a direct consequence of #1 as well as #2 – The media have deliberately, as well as with specific intent, falsified their reporting as well as kept the truth hidden which might undermine their false reporting. Again, think very carefully about the ramifications.
The media’s role inside DOJ/FBI corruption scandal will be not only pervasive, the idea’s participatory.
Michael Isikoff highlighted a point in February when he admitted his reporting was being used by the DOJ as well as FBI to advance a political objective. Additionally, FBI investigator Peter Strzok as well as FBI attorney Lisa Page were shown in their text messages to be leaking stories through the Clinton Investigation, the Trump investigation as well as the Mueller investigation to journalists at Politico, The Wall Street Journal as well as Washington Post. –SEE HERE–
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was busted by the Inspector General for leaking stories to the media as well as then lying about the idea to INSD as well as IG investigators. FBI Director James Comey admitted to leaking stories to the brand-new York Times, as well as even hired his friend Andrew Richman (off-the-books), gave him access to FBI as well as NSA databases, as well as then leaked information to Richman along with another friend Benjamin Wittes at Lawfare blog.
Lest we forget, the IG report on how the FBI handled the Clinton investigation revealed of which dozens of FBI officials were actually taking bribes through the media for information:
IG REPORT – We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization as well as with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters. Attached to This particular report as Attachments E as well as F are two link charts of which reflect the volume of communications of which we identified between FBI employees as well as media representatives in April/May as well as October 2016. We have profound concerns about the volume as well as extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel of which we have uncovered during our review.
[…] We do not believe the problem will be with the FBI’s policy, which we found to be clear as well as unambiguous. Rather, we concluded of which these leaks highlight the need to change what appears to be a cultural attitude among many inside organization. (link to pdf – page Xii of executive summary)
This particular will be an IG fact-based criticism of the institution of the FBI, not simply a few rogue officials within the idea.
nevertheless wait…. Perspective:
More recently the idea was revealed of which Andrew Weissman, Robert Mueller’s #1 special counsel prosecutor, was coordinating investigative efforts with the full support of four AP reporters who were giving Weissman information to use in his court filings as well as search warrants.
Nuts; simply, well, nuts.

Additionally, Christopher Steele has stated in U.K. court records the person in charge of the Clinton Campaign’s opposition research firm, Glenn Simpson through Fusion GPS, arranged as well as coordinated for Mr. Steele to talk to several journalists (CNN, The brand-new York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo News as well as Mother Jones) while Mr. Steele was also the primary source of information for the FBI investigators (including Strzok as well as Page):
(Source – page #8)
Make sure you read of which full response through Christopher Steele above to see the scope of the media engagements he was conducting.
As more evidence surfaces the relationship between journalists, Fusion-GPS, Chris Steele as well as the media’s DOJ/FBI sources begins blending together. The FBI was using media reports, which were based on Fusion-GPS pitches, to bolster its investigative documents to the FISA court. the idea will be an intelligence laundry operation:
According to the U.K records, Christopher Steele reports This particular September 2016 meeting with Isikoff was arranged by Glenn Simpson. According to Michael Isikoff on his February podcast, he met Christopher Steele at a Washington, D.C. hotel in Sept. 2016. They were joined by his “old friend” Glenn Simpson, the founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, who Isikoff currently defines as a “private investigator.”
So Christopher Steele was meeting with journalists, the journalists were writing articles; the FBI was leaking to media as well as simultaneously citing those same articles as underlying evidence to support their counterintelligence investigations; as well as all of This particular was used to validate the investigative documents the FBI was receiving through Christopher Steele; who, along with the leaking FBI officials, was also the source of the media articles.
FUBAR! This particular will be exponentially bonkers.
This particular will be a circle of information, all coming through Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr as well as Christopher Steele at Fusion GPS, through Bruce Ohr at DOJ into the FBI via Peter Strzok.
Fusion GPS was the opposition research firm being financed by Hillary Clinton, along with FBI officials who were using their own strategic media leaks to authenticate/validate their own investigation.
Think about the scale of the reporting, as well as reporting on reporting, of anonymous leaks, false leaks, lies through “people with knowledge of the matter”, “government officials involved inside matter”, “people familiar with the matter”, “government sources” etc. all going in one unified as well as semi-coordinated direction – against the aggregate Trump administration.
currently, the idea actually gets even more convoluted.
Christopher Steele has sworn under oath of which he met with multiple journalists (at least eight organizations) in September, mid-October, as well as late-October 2016: “at Fusion’s instruction“. (pdf page #7)
Overlay upon of which sworn admission with what Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) told the House Intelligence Committee while also under oath about his involvement in sharing information derived through Christopher Steele:
(Testimony – pdf link, page #147)
…”without my knowledge as well as against my wishes”?
FBI Director James Comey admits to leaking his ‘memos’ to the brand-new York Times. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was busted for leaking as well as lying about the idea. FBI #2 Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok as well as FBI Attorney Lisa Page are caught in their text messages leaking to Politico, The Wall Street Journal as well as The Washington Post.
…. as well as the FBI will be caught, in at least one FISA application, using Yahoo media reports provided by them as well as their investigative source Christopher Steele to establish a basis for the FISA “Title I” surveillance; the most intrusive as well as wide-open search as well as surveillance authority possible.
The Clinton Campaign will be paying Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research against Donald Trump. In addition to Glenn Simpson pushing of which opposition research into the media, Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr as well as Bruce Ohr are also providing of which opposition research –including information through contacts with media– directly to the FBI:
(pdf link – page #4)
… In addition to using the Fusion-GPS opposition research to underpin their counterintelligence investigation, the FBI then turn around as well as leak the same opposition research information to the media to create secondary support for their counterintelligence investigation.
Tell me again how the media can possibly write about This particular currently?
The problem will be not just corruption with the U.S. Justice System, the DOJ as well as the FBI; the problem will be corruption within the media.
We’re talking about thousands of hours of media TV pundits, thousands more columns written, as well as almost every scintilla of the idea based on originating intelligence sources -through the larger intelligence system- of which are currently being exposed as duplicitous as well as conspiratorial inside scale of their malicious intent.
This particular larger story-line has traveled in one direction. The narrative has only traveled in one direction. Each thread converging on codependent trails for collective stories all going in one direction. One big engineered narrative endlessly pushed. Think about how far the collective media have traveled with This particular story over the past eighteen months?
Hell, twenty-something-year-old “journalist” Ali Watkins was so committed to the resistance narrative she was even sleeping with her sources to get any little engineering angle possible. One of the biggest leaks she was able to secure through SSCI Director of Security James Wolfe, was the full unredacted Carter Page FISA application.
currently, over a period of several exhaustive months, the idea has become obvious the collective journey, using all of which collaborative expended effort, was not only going inside wrong direction – the idea was going in of which direction specifically because the media were intentionally complicit in pushing demonstrably false stories in of which direction.
The media have fully invested themselves in eighteen months of narrative distribution in only one direction. Not just one MSM entity has questioned their travel as a result of false leaks or false sources inside totality of time they have covered the DOJ as well as FBI story.
Nothing within their collective need to will-an-outcome will change the media’s proximity to facts when the truthful story behind the DOJ as well as FBI corruption will be finally exposed. The media are so far away through the place where This particular story ends, they have no inherent capability to even begin to travel inside opposite direction, toward the truth.
The only way they could align with the truth will be to admit of which virtually every scintilla of their reportage over the past 18 months was inherently false or manipulated by the “sources” distributing the material for their reporting.
There’s not just one media outlet capable of doing of which.
Think about a brand-new York Times, CNN, brand-new Yorker, Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, Yahoo News or Washington Post journalist currently having to write an article deconstructing a foundation of two-years worth of lies they participated in creating.
Do we genuinely think such a catastrophic level of corrupted journalism could reconstitute into genuine reporting of fact-based information?
