Can anyone be that dumb? Obama administration member just admitted she did it.

It’s about being inside a bubble and believing at an ideological level that you are right.  However, when you watch the clip, you can see two things- 1. Nunes has his first witness/suspect. 2. Mika’s reaction to her “confession” was classic. It was a “x-nay on the dissemination-eh! WTF is wrong with you!”

On  side note, this woman’s wide-eyed manner is that of just another crazy ideologue.  “Of course we did it! What choice did we have?!  Woo Hooo! Anybody seen my anti-depressant pills?”

Jeeezz…

This is akin to G. Gordon Liddy going to the Washington Post and saying “Damn right we broke into the Watergate! What choice did we have, those damned democrats were trying to unseat my man!”

Seriously, if Nunes is looking for his first witness/suspect I think we can help.  But what the TCTH people stated they uncovered is a little more disquieting. If you remember, the DNC refused to let the FBI look at their hacked servers, instead DEMANDING the FBI accept the reports of a company called “Crowdstrike”.  I have always found that disturbing.  Truth is the FBI should not depend on any third party reports if they are investigation a crime.  Even the basic issue of evidence collection and handling is questioned.

“Mr. FBI agent, you state here that the Russians hacked the DNC. Based on that you opened an investigation on the Trump campaign, is that not correct?”

“Yes sir.”

“Tell me, how do you know that happened?”

“A company called Crowdstrike said they found the evidence.” “Alright, how do you know they are telling you the truth?”

“Well…uh…hmmm….shit.”

Evelyn Farkas has stated freely on TV that she and a group of associates from the Obama Administration went to congressional staffers who did not have access to these COMINT products and urged them to seek to gain access to them.

At some point in the recent past Farkas was de-briefed (cut off) from access to the various kinds of compartmented information she had been given as a requirement of her prior job.  When that occurred she signed some papers in which she accepted the responsibility to protect the secrecy of that information.

♦ Evelyn Farkas is also a senior fellow of the Atlantic Council –SEE HERE– the Atlantic Council is funded in part by the US State Department, NATO, the governments of Latvia and Lithuania, the Ukrainian World Congress, and the Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk. The Atlantic Council has been among the loudest voices calling for a new Cold War with Russia

And guess who else is a senior fellow of the Atlantic Council? Dimitri Alperovitch – the founder and CTO of CrowdStrike! Alperovitch is head honcho of the Atlantic Council’s “Cyber Statecraft Initiative”.

♦ CrowdStrike, aka Dimitri Alperovitch was the organization that initially claimed they had evidence the Russians were connected to the Trump organization.  A claim they have subsequently walked back – SEE HERE

Yep. Ah shit.

So if you are a conspiracy nut, you get this. The DNC is “hacked” by someone. (Please do not look behind the other curtain where the four Muslim IT workers with access have been fired or put on the sidelines due to an ongoing investigation into their accessing DNC databases and stealing information).

The DNC refuses to let the FBI look at the source of the hack- the servers- instead hands off a report to them from a company called Crowdstrike. That company has links to not only the Ukrainians (who are looking to keep the cold war going and the Russians off of them. A goal shared by John McCain), but to the woman in the video above who just admitted to disseminating intel data to people far and wide on the Hill, to make sure Trump can’t make it go away.   And guess who helped disseminate this data?  Senator John McCain.

BTW- Farkas joined the MSNBC crew in order to tell people about the Russian/Trump connection according to her company’s statement.  They aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. Trump must be driving them nuts.

Update: Nice article from Circa. Bottom line, power corrupts.

As his presidency drew to a close, Barack Obama’s top aides routinely reviewed intelligence reports gleaned from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad, taking advantage of rules their boss relaxed starting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, Circa has learned.

Dozens of times in 2016, those intelligence reports identified Americans who were directly intercepted talking to foreign sources or were the subject of conversations between two or more monitored foreign figures. Sometimes the Americans’ names were officially unmasked; other times they were so specifically described in the reports that their identities were readily discernible. Among those cleared to request and consume unmasked NSA-based intelligence reports about U.S. citizens were Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, his CIA Director John Brennan and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch

Some intercepted communications from November to January involved Trump transition figures or foreign figures’ perceptions of the incoming president and his administration. Intercepts involving congressional figures also have been unmasked occasionally for some time.

The NSA is expected to turn over logs as early as this week to congressional committees detailing who consumed reports with unmasked Americans’ identities from their intercepts since the summer of 2016….

Over the last decade, the assumption of civil liberty and privacy protections for Americans incidentally intercepted by the NSA overseas has been eroded in the name of national security.

Today, the power to unmask an American’s name inside an NSA intercept — once considered a rare event in the intelligence and civil liberty communities — now resides with about 20 different officials inside the NSA alone. The FBI also has the ability to unmask Americans’ names to other intelligence professionals and policymakers.

And the justification for requesting such unmasking can be as simple as claiming “the identity of the United States person is necessary to understand foreign intelligence information or assess its importance,” according to a once-classified document that the Obama administration submitted in October 2011 for approval by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. It laid out specifically how and when the NSA could unmask an American’s identity.

Rand Paul should be running with this.  The Congress has to reign in the abuses, how well intended.  Make the system tougher, so that the people looking for real intelligence will make the effort, those who are politically motivated or just bad apples, will not.

And it appears Crowdstrike is not as accurate as you’d want them to be. In fact, the tend to blame Russians for everything, which goes to their ultimate goal.  Here the Brits think they made a mistake (or didn’t depending on their agenda).  One wonders at what point do we think they are part of some effort to undermine Russia and keep the cold war going.
