After months of stalling, the highly classified document that
was used to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on Donald Trump's
campaign officials has finally been released to Devin Nunes.

It is reported that Nunes and Gowdy and viewed the document
in an electronic form, with minimal redactions.


Justice Department officials on Wednesday provided House Intelligence panel members a fuller view of a highly classified intelligence document that may have kicked off the FBI’s investigation of contacts between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian operatives

“Although the subpoenas issued by this committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I’d like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today,” Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said in a statement Wednesday.

Fox News is reporting that Peter Strzok had a significant role
in drafting the document which led to what is now known
as "The Russia Probe". Also reported is that as previously
suspected, this document was based on information
from a foreign country and involves a foreign agent.


Despite Rosenstein making the minimally redacted version of the memo available, the government source said committee Republicans remained concerned about the memo’s underlying intelligence and the credibility of the sources which would require further investigation. A Justice Department official told Fox News that the memo's redactions had been "narrowly tailored to protect the name of a foreign country and the name of a foreign agent... These words must remain redacted after determining that revealing the words could harm the national security of the American people by undermining the trust we have with this foreign nation."

The initial comments from Nunes indicate the new information
does nothing to alleviate previous concerns about the so called
"intelligence" that was used, and the credibility of the person
or persons involved.

So, any thoughts on who just who this foreign country
was, and the foreign agent? I can only think
of one....Christopher Steele and the UK!
And it has been proven through depositions
that his information came directly from Russia!

The Russia Probe is a highly politicized
weaponization of the FISA Court, The FBI, and The DOJ
using tabloid trash from Russia to rig and election
and furthermore take down a duly elected President!

What a travesty! I sure hope this lights a few fires
and perhaps a few more firings, if not indictments!

Given the history of the democratic leadership doing exactly what they claim everyone else (including publicans) should not be doing, this would come as no surprise.

Screaming Russia Russia Russia while actually using Russian intelligence to attack a then nominee.

If Strzok has as most of the influence over the warrant as what is implied, then given his history and antics, I'm doubting it will hold up.

Yep, this was bought and paid for by The Clintons,
who broke campaign finance laws ...AHEM.

Agreed, and thankfully it is being reported here that Nunes
will continue to investigate the investigation!



Nunes said Wednesday he was appreciative for the deputy attorney general’s assistance — but would continue to investigate the investigation.

Reading through dozens of reports right now to
see other details.

I don't see where that is stated. It says only that the name of a country and the the name of a foreign agent were redacted, not that the warrant was based on either one.

So, you think this document is based on the dossier? You don't think it's about Papadopoulos?



Nunes has been furious with the agencies over attempts to obtain the two-page document that the FBI used to initiate its investigation of the Trump campaign’s Russia contacts. That document, which The New York Times reported on in December, revealed that the inquiry was launched because of an intelligence tip that George Papadopoulos, a campaign foreign policy aide, had revealed to an Australian diplomat indicating that Russia had obtained negative material about Hillary Clinton.

Too bad the FBI drug its feet, but they had to come up
with Plan B. Its a race at this point.

Let Mueller twist in the wind is the best option,
and go for the underbelly.

Also, The Daily Caller has a few thoughts that this could
have been Australia, and Downer.



The FBI opened its investigation on July 31, 2016, reportedly based on information passed to the bureau by the Australian government about George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser. Papadopoulos claimed in May 2016 to have information that Russia possessed stolen Hillary Clinton emails, Australia’s ambassador to the U.S. reportedly told his American counterparts. Papadopoulos allegedly made the claim during a conversation in London with Alexander Downer, Australia’s top diplomat to United Kingdom.


dailycaller.com...

Which is possible, I was not aware there was an Aussie Agent involved.
but Downer leads directly back to The Clinton Foundation.

Its right in the OP Phage.


It could be Australia, and Carter Page.

Is Pappadapolous an Agent?



According to a Justice Department official, the remaining redactions in the document are "narrowly tailored to protect the name of a foreign country and the name of a foreign agent." Specifics have been replaced with identifiers like "foreign official" and "foreign government," the official said.


thehill.com...

Either way, if it is Australia and Downer that is
almost worse for the Clintons, as it goes
right back to the donations Downer made
to The Clinton Foundation.

There should be an FBI raid tomorrow morning....

Does it say the information originated from the redacted country?


Is Pappadapolous an Agent?
An agent of the Trump campaign, yes. But not a foreign agent, so I suppose his name was not redacted.




Either way, if it is Australia and Downer that is almost worse for the Clintons, as it goes right back to the donations Downer made to The Clinton Foundation.
Even though it was based on Papadopoulos blabbing about Russians having dirt on Clinton?

Of what? Papadopoulus already pleaded guilty.

It says the redacted country must be protected.

You do the math, Phage.

Of The Clinton Foundation, for taking donations
in trade for the favor. Also for the campaign finance
violations where Clinton lied and claimed she knew
nothing about this, then later when caught admitted
she knew about it, but her lawyer paid for it.

Sound familiar??

So, it has nothing to do with a drunken Papadopoulus. Ok.
This may be interesting then. As the president says, "We'll see what happens."

Actually, that document was first asked for by (then) committee chairman Trey Gowdy, in November 2016. Obama's DOJ told him to "Drop Dead".

It's understandable why Trey Gowdy accompanied Devin Nunes to Rosenstein's office today. I bet their meeting was "lively".

It should be very easy to figure out the redacted country by comparing font size with redaction size to determine how many letters are in the countries name.

Well, Papapadopoulus was drunk with a female, whom he
is marrying or already married. Was she an agent?'

I am just wondering if it is Australia, who the agent is?

Was Steele's unnamed partner who was tied up
with the Russian agents also working with Australia?

Carter Page could be an agent, but he is not a foreign agent.

Kind of a very narrow set of persons, Steele, or his associate
or an unknown Aussia agent? I am open to any intel
that makes sense .....

You are assuming the redacted agent is an agent of the redacted country? What else are you assuming? The date of the document?

Is he on tonight anywhere that you know of ?

I see Politico is calling on Paul Ryan to fire Devin Nunes.

LOL

I wonder why they are so afraid of Nunes?

Electronic document, maybe not so easy. In any case, whether or not we'll see it is an open question.

Yes, but it is a very logical assumption, don't you think?

What other conclusion is there, that the foreign agent
was working for another country?

I suppose that is possible but less likely, and then
two countries would need protecting, right?

Possibly, I'm not to familiar with how they would redact an electronic document, but I would only assume it would be the same as a paper document with simply blacking out the redacted portions. I would feel uneasy if they were able to edit it to delete and change the name of the country and agent to say 'redacted', that would leave it open to other edits if they felt like it.

So, in fact it was an entire year and a half ago
and Obama's DOJ was involved?

I was unaware of this juicy tidbit, thank you!

How much more will the Republicans take and
just sit on their hands?
