Hat Tip to The Conservative Tree House
The Trump Dossier was not created to allow for spying on the Trump Campaign. The Dossier was created to gain a FISA Court approval for illegal surveillance activity that had already taken place (FISA 702 approval can be granted retroactively).
Mid-2016 – Suspecting ongoing irregularities, NSA Director Mike Rogers ordered the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.
During the investigation, the NSA compliance officer identified strange 702 “About Queries” that were being conducted. These Queries represented fourth amendment violations – unlawful surveillance.
October 20, 2016 – Rogers was briefed by the compliance officer on what had been discovered.
Rogers immediately ordered the “About Query” activity to stop, reported the activity to the DOJ, and then advised the FISA court of these irregularities.
October 26, 2016 – NSA Director Rogers personally informed the FISC court of the 702(17) violations.
An April 26, 2017 unsealed FISA Court Ruling unveiled a more precise timing:
The October 26, 2016 Notice informed the Court that NSA Analysts had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had previously been disclosed to the Court.
The Court ascribed the government’s failure to disclose the IG and OCO reviews at the October 4, 2016 hearing [Obama’s NSD Director John Carlin – NOT Rogers] to an institutional “Lack of Candor” and emphasized that “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment Issue”.
Now see this timeline:
November 2015-April 2016 – The FBI and NSD uses private contractors to access raw FISA information using “To” and “From” FISA-702(16) & “About” FISA-702(17) queries.
On or before April 18, 2016 – NSA Director Mike Rogers orders the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.
April 18, 2016 – The FBI discontinued private contractor access to raw FISA information.
April 19 2016 – Wife of Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS) Mary Jacoby visits White House.
Late April 2016 – Clinton Campaign begins paying Fusion GPS.
April/May 2016 – Fusion GPS hires Christopher Steele.
April/May 2016 – Fusion GPS hires Nellie Ohr, wife of DOJ Assoc. Deputy AG Bruce Ohr.
May 2016 – Trump becomes presumptive GOP Nominee.
May 23 2016 – Nellie Ohr applies for a HAM Radio license.
June 2016 – FBI Agent Peter Strzok – and possibly DOJ’s Bruce Ohr – meet with Christopher Steel.
Late June 2016 – First draft of Trump Dossier shared w/Fusion & possibly FBI’s Strzok.
Late June 2016 – First FISA 702 Surveillance Authority request made. It is denied.
The bottom line is that in November 2015 to April 2016 the FBI was sharing intelligence with FUSION GPS. The warrant to “legally” allow for the FBI to spy on Team Trump was granted on October 19th 2016. That is over 6 months after we for sure know that the spying had started.
Also Mary Jacoby wife of Glen Simpson pays a visit to the White House April 19 so now there is strong probable cause if not strong evidence that President Obama was himself involved in this conspiracy. We see a few days after the White House visit Clinton campaign pays Fusion GPS, then Christopher Steele gets hired, then Nellie Ohr (wife of Bruce Ohr demoted official at DOJ for his part in this conspiracy)gets hired too.
The Dossier was created for two reasons:
It became a file for information already gathered from the illegal wire taps and added to from the false information provided by Christopher Steele.
It was used to gain legal permission for the previously illegal methods by which the information had been gathered.
What Obama and Clinton did not account for was that Admiral Mike Rogers around the same time had also been just made aware of malfeasance going on at FBI counter intelligence by one of his compliance officers which means also the abuses were happening PRIOR to APRIL 2016. This was the key to the whole plot eventually being uncovered as when his audit was complete it blew the whole plot up with the eventual news stories we are now featuring daily.
Ash Carter ( former Defense Secretary) and James Clapper (former DNI director) recommended the firing of Admiral Mike Rogers when they found out that their plot to destroy Trump was about to be uncovered in November 17th 2016 as on that day without telling Clapper or Carter, Rogers informed the President elect at the time that he had been wired tapped during his election campaign. This also proves that Ash Carter and James Clapper are also deeply involved in this plot as is probably John Brennan the former head of the CIA another Obama crony. Obama knew that it was too late and if he had fired Admiral Rogers his presidency immediately would be called into question. Unfortunately for Obama this only delayed the inevitable as not only will his presidency be shown to be the most corrupt in US history, but he will be lucky to avoid many years in prison however his subordinates might no be so lucky.
