Domestic Enemies under James Clapper Destroyed the Credibility of the U.S. Intelligence Community
The recent declassifying of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court review of the Inspector General’s (IG) investigation into the National Security Agency’s compliance with existing surveillance laws was eye-opening. Basically, the NSA failed miserably on all accounts, and this assessment includes the CIA.
U.S. citizens are being surveilled and recorded in an unprecedented fashion negating the Fourth Amendment rights of Americans.
James Clapper was the head intelligence boss at the time this report was given in the late-fall of 2016. For the five years prior to this report, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (Clapper) was in open non-compliance and the FBI was in worse condition because they refused to report at all on their surveillance of U.S. citizens both inside America and outside.
The report was so bad that Clapper should have been put in jail for his outright defiance of U.S. laws and his continued lies and perjury concerning surveillance of U.S. citizens, especially the Trump team. For Clapper to say that Trump was not surveilled is a bold-faced lie according to the FISA Court’s report. The very cloud-computing systems that James Clapper and his Office of National Intelligence created cannot be made to be compliant with U.S. laws. Clapper’s system, aided by Obama’s executive orders, surveils everyone in America who uses a computer tied to the internet or a cell phone.
These facts were revealed by Snowden as well as other leakers and whistleblowers. Clapper repeatedly lied to Congress under oath about these systems and later changed his tune. He has been changing that tune continuously ever since.
As the DNI, Clapper was the boss of all 17 US intelligence agencies and about 44 corporate intelligence agencies, all who use Clapper’s cloud-computing system. Part of the DNI’s cloud memory contract was awarded to Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon and the Washington Post, for $600 million. The NSA’s Utah collection center is the other large cloud memory storage facility that, until recently, housed the spy data for years. Only now is part of that data being erased by court order. There are hundreds of thousands of people with top security clearances who can simply log unto the Clapper system and query the NSA data base and access “unmasked” raw intelligence.
This is why Susan Rice could simply go into the White House SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) and spy on the Trump team any time she wanted, as she recently said on national news. Susan Rice said that she was following the standard procedures for “minimization of raw intelligence” and the “unmasking procedures under the section 702.” Yes, she was spying legally because of James Clapper’s negligence to follow U.S. laws concerning surveillance and his spy data-base. No one needed to “unmask” anyone, they are all unmasked. But if that is known and understood, then we would realize that a “corporate intelligence coup” has already been effected and that U.S. military intelligence has been supplanted.
James Clapper is a criminal who has lied again under oath about the Trump/Russia collusion, Trump “wiretapping,” Trump Russian dossier, General Flynn, and a host of other issues related to the intelligence community’s attacks against President Trump, before and after the election. Clapper was Comey’s boss who would have, by necessity, had to have reported everything concerning Trump to his boss because it was not only a “national security” issue but an “international security” issue, which is beyond the domain of the FBI or the Attorney General’s Justice Department.
Only Clapper could have allowed an FBI investigation of Trump to continue during an election and then only with the FISA court approval.
But Clapper and Brennan both testified that they have only ever approved a few “unmasking” in their tenure. This would be impossible to believe until you understand that Clapper’s cloud-computer system does not require “unmasking” and it does not leave a paper-trail. They have created the perfect spying system for every corporate intelligence agency or foreign government to hack.
It is from “Clapper’s Spy System” that most of the corporate intelligence contractors gained access to such voluminous amounts of data to steal and leak. It was stolen quite easily, just like Wikileak’s Vault 7 data that should have been the most protected information in the NSA. Broad access to classified information was always “need to know” basis before Clapper let hackers into the system to destroy all credibility in U.S. intelligence systems. If it were up to Clapper, who worked for the leading corporate intelligence agency SRA, only private contractors would have access to NSA information and the NSA would be run by corporate intelligence agencies. Clapper would cut the military out of the intelligence community all together so that the huge intelligence budget would go directly to corporations who, by the way, also work for many other foreign countries unfriendly to America.
No matter how you cut the pie, Clapper was (and perhaps still is) working actively against America and that is why he sees Trump as a threat. General Flynn’s plan was to cut the corporate intelligence agencies out altogether. That is why the intelligence community worked so hard to get Flynn fired. They knew that their days were numbered if Flynn became the head of U.S. intelligence.
In this exclusive American Intelligence Media citizen intelligence report, we outline the details of Clapper’s crimes and let his own words and actions indict him for treason, sedition, and being a hostile foreign agent. The perjury charges alone found in Clapper’s testimonies should put him in a federal penitentiary for the rest of his life. The good news for patriots who are working to take back America and restore the rule of law is that when Clapper falls, the entire compromised intelligence community will, too.
Clapper’s New System Unmasks Everyone Without Leaving a Trail
Clapper served as Obama’s DNI from 2010 to 2017, and in 2011, he set into motion wide-ranging “reforms” that created a cloud-computing platform tied to Intelligence Community IT Enterprise, or ICITE. Clapper justified his move in the name of improving information-sharing among intelligence officials and breaking down barriers between agencies. But Clapper’s changes lowered security standards for sharing NSA and CIA intelligence data. As a result, many intelligence officials were enabled to access raw intelligence about U.S. citizens simply by using a password.
Clapper’s creation of a cloud-computing platform in 2013 made it far easier for officials like former White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice to ‘unmask’ individual Americans without creating a digital paper trail leading back to her. For a citizen intelligence report on Rice, see our report Susan Rice Unmasked: White House War Monger.)
Clapper’s system enabled tens of thousands of government officials to share previously off-limits intelligence information. His efforts dramatically altered the rules that previously barred access to phone records of U.S. citizens unless there was prior approval following rigorous NSA review.
After the technology and the workplace policies had changed, basically that access was based on ‘user permissions’ that would allow an intelligence employee to look in the database itself. You didn’t have to ask anyone at NSA to retrieve the information. A key aspect of cloud technology is that to do that retrieval, you don’t have to set up the whole line of an ‘audit-able’ chain.
KEY POINT: Obama also pushed for more aggressive information sharing in the final days of his administration when he authorized all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies to access raw NSA data through Executive Order 12333.
The number of Section 702 American citizen “targets” since Clapper’s system began in 2013 has surged from 898 in 2014, to 89,000 in 2015, to 106,000 in 2016. Clapper’s $600 million contract for the new system met fierce opposition from other high-tech companies when it was awarded to Jeff Bezos’ Amazon Web Services. The rivals charged that Bezos received preferential treatment. Clapper failed to evaluate prices comparably, and he waived the bidding requirement for Amazon.
Corporate Intelligence Agencies Rule America
James Clapper knows privatization from his own experience. From 1998 to 2001, he was the director of intelligence programs for SRA International, the predecessor to CSRA. Moreover, his DNI office was crawling with contractors. According to a declassified ODNI budget that was released under a Freedom of Information Act request, contractors hold 44 percent of the positions in Clapper’s office, including 13 percent of his senior leadership. That total is twice as high as contractor penetration in the rest of the intelligence community, and further evidence of how much of our country’s spying is done for profit.
Since the late 1990s, the bulk of the contracted intelligence work went to a handful of companies: Leidos, Booz Allen Hamilton, CSRA, SAIC, and CACI International. The fact that much of this privatized work is top secret—and is generally underreported in the press—undermines the accountability and transparency of U.S. spy agencies.
In public, Clapper makes no bones about those corporate ties. “If you can’t get a job in the IC, then sign on with one of our contractors,” he told an intelligence conference last fall. “Industry is absolutely crucial to our continued viability and success.”
What’s at stake in intelligence outsourcing is not just the movement of money and goods, but also the security of the American public and control over the information that keeps us safe. Market concentration in this sector, therefore, has deeper and more sinister implications than in civilian industries such as finance or telecommunications. Concentration means that fewer and fewer companies control the information that guides our military and civilian leaders and, by extension, shapes America’s view of the world and the military and political actions it takes.
Leidos is now the largest of five corporations that together employ nearly 80 percent of the private-sector employees contracted to work for U.S. spy and surveillance agencies which is worth about $50 billion. Leidos Holdings, a major contractor for the Pentagon and the NSA, completed a long-planned merger with the Information Systems & Global Solutions division of Lockheed Martin, the global military giant. The 8,000 operatives employed by the new company do everything from analyzing signals for the NSA to tracking down suspected enemy fighters for US Special Forces in the Middle East and Africa.
Here is a breakdown of the corporations that dominate and rule U.S. intelligence:
CSRA Inc. (8,000 personnel) was created out of a merger between CSC, which developed and manages the NSA’s classified internal-communications system, and SRA International, a highly profitable company with a long history of involvement in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR). It has close ties to the U.S. Air Force, provides 24/7 support for the “global operations” of U.S. commands in Europe and Africa and manages the “global network of intelligence platforms” for the most advanced drones in the US arsenal.
Booz Allen Hamilton (12,000 personnel) is partly owned by the Carlyle Group, serving the Director of National Intelligence, Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, national intelligence and civil agencies, and military intelligence.
SAIC (6,600 personnel) is a well-known military contractor that has expanded into spying by buying Scitor, a company deeply embedded in the Pentagon’s top-secret satellite operations and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which manages those satellites and integrates downloaded signals and imagery from space for the NSA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
CACI International (10,000 personnel) is the Pentagon contractor that recently acquired two companies doing extensive work for the NSA and the CIA: National Security Solutions and Six3 Intelligence Solutions. It recently won a new Army contract to provide intelligence to U.S. military forces in Syria.
Together, Leidos and its four competitors earned nearly $16 billion from government IT contracts in 2015. The key to their dominance lies not with their revenue but with their employees—specifically, their approximately 45,000 contractors with security clearances who work alongside government employees at the NSA, the CIA, and other agencies.
Added together, the five companies employ 44,600 cleared personnel nearly 80 percent of the total contractor workforce of 58,000 and about one-fifth of the total workforce of 183,000 civilians, contractors, and uniformed soldiers working in national and military intelligence.
The spies-for-hire workforce includes thousands of professionals from the still-formidable intelligence divisions of Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Raytheon, BAE, and Accenture, and a handful of smaller companies, including ManTech International Corporation, Engility Corporation, L-3 Communications, and PAE.
Yet with few exceptions, intelligence privatization has been largely ignored by the national media and the publications established to expose what they call the “surveillance state.” Congress, by ignoring this huge elephant in the room, is simply not doing its job.
In public documents and congressional hearings, however, intelligence overlords frequently recognize the existence of this private army of corporate intelligence agencies as “core contract personnel.” The ODNI, in its public testimony, describes them as “functionally indistinguishable from U.S. government personnel whose missions they support,” performing activities that include “collection, analysis, information technology, training, and education.”
It’s time for Congress and the media to finally recognize spying as a joint venture between the security state and the private sector. In the end, intelligence is a public resource that deserves to be controlled by the people and for the people, and not benefit a small group of corporations and the oligarchs they’ve spawned.
James Clapper – Head Intelligence Liar Obstructs Justice
At a March 12, 2013 Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing, Senator Ron Wyden asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Director Clapper responded, “No, sir … Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps, collect, but not, not wittingly.”
On June 6, Clapper told the National Journal, “What I said was, the NSA does not voyeuristically pore through U.S. citizens’ emails. I stand by that,” Clapper said.
Two days later, in an interview with NBC, Clapper further explained that he found himself in a difficult position when confronted with Wyden’s question.
“I thought though in retrospect I was asked ‘when are you going to stop beating your wife’ kind of question, meaning not answerable necessarily, by a simple yes or no. So, I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least most untruthful manner, by saying, ‘No.’”
Clapper later said he made a mistake. In a letter to the committee’s chair, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Clapper contended that he thought Wyden was referring to something other than the phone metadata program, one that targets foreigners. Under that program, Clapper contended, his characterization that American data would only be collected through “inadvertent” means, would be correct.
But he admitted his answer, as stated, was wrong.
“My response was clearly erroneous,” he wrote.
Disclosures by Snowden reveal that the NSA is, in fact, engaged in collecting private data on millions of Americans through the PRISM program, that the NSA was doing so at the time of Director Clapper’s testimony, and that he was aware of this when he testified. On June 8, after the existence of the PRISM program was revealed, Director Clapper told NBC he made the “least untruthful” statement he could without divulging classified information. Director Clapper later sent a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, chair of the intelligence committee, claiming to have misunderstood Senator Wyden’s question.
By testifying falsely, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper appears to have violated laws prohibiting false statements and obstruction of a congressional inquiry. Clapper must be held accountable for deliberately lying (called perjury) to Congress.
Clapper’s Own Words Indict Him
James Clapper told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that evidence between President Donald Trump and Russia do not exist. Below is a transcript of what Clapper said, followed by a clarification of his obfuscations.
“We did not include any evidence in our report, and I say, “our,” that’s NSA, FBI and CIA, with my office, the Director of National Intelligence, that had anything, that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians. There was no evidence of that included in our report.”
Counterpoint: Later Clapper says he doesn’t keep track of what the FBI and CIA do.
“There was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president-elect, at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign,” Clapper said on NBC’s Meet the Press, March 5, 2017. Clapper also said that “no FISA order was ever issued against Trump.”
Counterpoint: We know both that a FISA order was requested twice and granted once and that Trump’s entire team was surveilled (wiretapped).
“The first week in intelligence school, you learn there are only two conditions in life. There is policy success, or there is intel failure. There is no other condition in life.”
Counterpoint: Intel schools teach you to lie to have policy success or you have failed in your task. His interrogators in these situations are not foreign agents, but reporters and elected officials, all which by Clapper’s standards are “the enemy.” His answers and testimonies are given as any trained spy would give under interrogation.
“During my tenure as DNI, it was my practice to defer to the FBI director — both (former FBI) Director (Robert) Mueller and Director Comey — on whether, when, and to what extent they would inform me about such investigations.”
“We must remain mindful of the potential impact of over-correcting the authorizations of the intelligence community.”
Counterpoint: Clapper permitted authorizations more than anyone in the intelligence community before him.
Clapper’s Testimony is Full of Holes
The following quotations of James Clapper and Sally Yates are taken from the Washington Post, May 8th full transcript of Sally Yates and James Clapper testimony on Russian election interference at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
James Clapper testified to the Senate and said:
“As you know, the Intelligence Community Assessment was a coordinated product from three agencies; CIA, NSA, and the FBI not all 17 components of the intelligence community.”
Counterpoint: This does not agree with the report Clapper submitted in December nor his public comments.
“They found that the Russian government pursued a multifaceted influence campaign in the run-up to the election, including aggressive use of cyber capabilities.”
Counterpoint: There is absolutely no evidence presented for any cyber-attacks nor any discussion of such prior to Clapper’s remarks.
“The Russians used cyber operations against both political parties, including hacking into servers used by the Democratic National Committee and releasing stolen data to WikiLeaks and other media outlets. Russia also collected on certain Republican Party- affiliated targets, but did not release any Republican-related data.”
Counterpoint: There has been zero evidence that anyone hacked the Republicans.
“The Intelligence Community Assessment concluded first that President Putin directed and influenced campaign to erode the faith and confidence of the American people in our presidential election process.”
Counterpoint: There is no evidence except Dmitri Alperovitch’s (a private contractor) opinion, which he said was his opinion, that Putin had anything to do with meddling in the election.
In Alperovitch’s words we learn:
“Putin did so to demean Secretary Clinton…”
“Putin sought to advantage Mr. Trump. These conclusions were reached based on the richness of the information gathered and analyzed and were thoroughly vetted and then approved by the directors of the three agencies and me.”
Counterpoint: I guess Clapper forgot that James Comey and he have disagreed over these points and they have said so publicly and that only Crowdstrike ever looked at the DNC server.
“On several occasions during my six and a half years as DNI, I requested the identity of U.S. persons to be revealed. In each such instance, I made these requests so I could fully understand the context of the communication and the potential threat being posed. At no time did I ever submit a request for personal or political purposes or to voyeuristically look at raw intelligence nor am I aware of any instance of such abuse by anyone else.”
Counterpoint: We know from descriptions of Clapper’s new cloud-computing spy system that everyone is unmasked and that Clapper’s remarks about “unmasking” are a bold-faced lie.
“I’ve long maintained during my 50-plus year career in intelligence that leaks endanger national security, they compromise sources, methods and tradecraft and they can put assets’ lives at risk. And for the record, in my long career, I’ve never knowingly exposed classified information in an inappropriate manner.”
Counterpoint: If this is true, why did James Clapper not investigate the massive amounts of leaks?
“During my tenure as DNI, it was my practice to defer to the FBI director, both Director Mueller and then subsequently Director Comey, on whether, when and to what extent they would inform me about such investigations. This stems from the unique position of the FBI, which straddles both intelligence and law enforcement. And as a consequence, I was not aware of the counterintelligence investigation Director Comey first referred to during his testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee for Intelligence on the 20th of March, and that comports with my public statements.”
Counterpoint: Clapper oversees the FBI and DOJ intelligence agencies, and especially “counterintelligence” and it would be a dereliction of his duties to be “uninformed” about an investigation about Trump or Russians meddling in the election. These are simply more spy lies to cover the lies of America’s spying and lying agencies.
“In conclusion, Russia’s influence activities in the run-up to the 2016 election constituted the high water mark of their long running efforts since the 1960s to disrupt and influence our elections. They must be congratulating themselves for having exceeded their wildest expectations with a minimal expenditure of resource. And I believe they are now emboldened to continue such activities in the future both here and around the world, and to do so even more intensely. If there has ever been a clarion call for vigilance and action against a threat to the very foundation of our democratic political system, this episode is it. I hope the American people recognize the severity of this threat and that we collectively counter it before it further erodes the fabric of our democracy.”
Counterpoint: There was no previous Russian hacking of elections now or in the past and there is no evidence in any report that shows that Clapper’s fear tactics are simply more propaganda. Remember, Clapper has already said publicly that there was no Russia interference in the election.
In testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 8, 2017, Senator Chuck Grassley questions Sally Yates and James Clapper.
GRASSLEY: OK. I want to discuss unmasking. Mr. Clapper and Ms. Yates, did either of you ever request the unmasking of Mr. Trump, his associates or any member of Congress?
CLAPPER: Yes, in one case I did that I can specifically recall, but I can’t discuss it any further than that.
GRASSLEY: Question two. Did either of you ever review classified documents in which Mr. Trump, his associates or members of Congress had been unmasked?
GRASSLEY: You have? Can you give us details here in this…
CLAPPER: No, I can’t.
GRASSLEY: Ms. Yates, have you?
YATES: Yes, I have and no, I can’t give you details.
GRASSLEY: The FBI notified the Democratic National Committee of the Russian’s intrusion into their systems in August of 2015, but the DNC turned down the FBI’s offer to get the Russians out and refused the FBI access to their servers. Instead, it evidently eventually hired a private firm in the spring of 2016. WikiLeaks began releasing the hacked DNC e-mails last July. It took roughly 27,000 of the 27,500 DNC e-mails it released were e-mails sent after the FBI notified the DNC of the breach.
Mr. Clapper, would you agree that one of the lessons of this episode is that people should cooperate with the FBI when notified of foreign hacks instead of stone walling?
CLAPPER: Yes, sir. I generally think that’s a very good idea.
GRASSLEY: Mr. Clapper, you said the Russians did not release any negative information on Republican candidates. I believe that that’s not quite right. On June 15th, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 released to Gawker and The Smoking Gun more than 200 pages of the DNC’s opposition research on Mr. Trump — hundreds of pages of what I would call dirt. This happened just two days after The Wall Street Journal published a plan for Republican Convention delegates to revolt to prevent Mr. Trump from securing the nomination. Why wasn’t the Russian release of harmful information about Mr. Trump addressed in the Russia report? And was this even evaluated during the review?
CLAPPER: I would have to consult with the analysts that were involved in the report to definitively answer that. I don’t know personally whether they considered that or not.
Counterpoint: The many lies involved in the quotes above are too many to address. But I am sure you have noticed that Clapper never says the same thing twice and therefore his lies are profoundly obvious.
Clapper said in March that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. During the hearing, he added a huge caveat — that he did not know about an ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation into whether there was collusion. But Clapper said any evidence from that investigation was apparently not sufficient to include in their assessment on January 5, when three intelligence agencies issued a statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin had interfered with the U.S. elections against Clinton. Clapper said under oath:
“The evidence, if there was any, didn’t reach the evidentiary bar in terms of the level of confidence that we were striving for in that intelligence community assessment.”
Counterpoint: Thus, even though there was an investigation he did not know about it did not provide good enough evidence to be included in any assessment that he would have known about. Clapper also later told Grassley that he had no reason to believe that any agency withheld any relevant information from him. He said there was also not enough evidence of a Trump business interest in Russia to put into the intelligence community’s assessment, by the time he left in January.
The intelligence community could not corroborate the Trump dossier that was reportedly used as the basis of a FISA warrant on former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page, and as the “roadmap” for the FBI’s investigation on Trump. Clapper also said the dossier — produced by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and paid for by anti-Trump and pro-Clinton donors, could not be corroborated.
“We couldn’t corroborate the sourcing, particularly the second — third-order sources,” Clapper testified.
Counterpoint: It was all confabulation that was “unauthenticated and unverified.”
Clapper revealed that he had requested the unmasking of both a Trump associate and a member of Congress at least once each. He also said he didn’t know who unmasked Flynn, meaning he had unmasked a different Trump associate. Since Clapper had left office on January 20, this means the Trump associate he had requested the unmasking for was a Trump campaign or transition team official, again confirming Trump’s assertion that Trump Tower was being surveilled. It also implies that someone else in the short chain of command “unmasked” Trump associate names, even beyond the White House unmasking them through the White House SCIF by Susan Rice.
Statistical Transparency Report Regarding Use of National Security Authorities 2016
In June 2014, the Director of National Intelligence began releasing statistics relating to the use of critical national security authorities, including the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), in an annual report called the Statistical Transparency Report Regarding Use of National Security Authorities. Subsequent Annual Statistical Transparency Reports were released in 2015 and 2016.
On June 2, 2015, the USA Freedom Act was enacted, codifying a requirement to publicly report many of the statistics already reported in the Annual Statistical Transparency Report. The Act also expanded the scope of the information included in the reports by requiring the DNI to report information concerning United States person search terms and queries of certain FISA‐ acquired information, as well as specific statistics concerning information collected pursuant to call detail records. See 50 U.S.C. § 1873(b).
Both FISA Title I and FISA Title III require a probable cause court order to target individuals within the United States regardless of U.S. person status.
FISA Title VII Sections 703 and 704 similarly require a court order based on a finding of probable cause for the government to undertake FISA activities targeting U.S. persons located outside the United States.
Section 702 of FISA
2016 number of targets – 106,469*
2016 number of queries concerning a known U.S. person – 30,355
*None of the quoted statistics include those conducted by the FBI who refuses to report.
As part of their regular oversight reviews, DOJ and ODNI review disseminations of information about U.S. persons that NSA obtained pursuant to Section 702 to ensure that the disseminations were performed in compliance with the minimization procedures.
Title IV of FISA PR/TT FISA
2016 number of unique identifiers used to communicate information collected – 125,378
Call Detail Records
2016 number of call detail records from providers and stored in NSA repositories 151,230,968.
Essentially, what this report is telling us is that Clapper and the CIA/NSA surveil everyone they can without discrimination and without care for the rights of U.S. citizens.
The FBI surveils anyone they want to and do not report to anyone including the FISA Court. Just the Call Detail Records numbers alone show that half of all Americans have been “accidentally” targeted and spied on. It is easy to see that even these numbers, that had to be forced out of James Clapper, are just a smoke-screen for the complete and total illegal surveillance of all Americans.
Clapper and Comey Ignore Whistleblowers
The same day House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes gave a press conference stating that Trump and his transition team were under “incidental surveillance,” attorney and founder of Judicial Watch, Larry Klayman, sent a formal letter to the House Committee on Intelligence demanding they investigate the claims and evidence on more than 40 hard drives with over 600 million pages of information presented under oath at the FBI Field Office in Washington, DC by his client – CIA/NSA Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery.
Klayman claimed in a Newsmax report that Montgomery, “holds the keys to disproving the false claims that there is no evidence that the president and his associates were wiretapped.” Montgomery’s case was largely ignored. Montgomery then contacted Attorney Klayman, who then approached the FBI:
Says Klayman, “Under grants of immunity, which I obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration.
“Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information much of which is classified. He sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.”
“He even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”
Montgomery’s claims aren’t new, as other whistleblowers have alleged the same. Former head of the NSA’s digital spying team William Binney also came forward. Binney disclosed as fact the U.S. was spying on everyone in the U.S. and storing the data forever, and the U.S. was quickly becoming an Orwellian state. Binney says the Feds tried to intimidate him into shutting up as his lawyer reports:
“Numerous FBI officers held a gun to Binney’s head as he stepped naked from the shower. He watched with his wife and youngest son as the FBI ransacked their home. Later Binney was separated from the rest of his family, and FBI officials pressured him to implicate one of the other complainants in criminal activity. During the raid, Binney attempted to report to FBI officials the crimes he had witnessed at NSA, in particular the NSA’s violation of the constitutional rights of all Americans. However, the FBI wasn’t interested in these disclosures. Instead, FBI officials seized Binney’s private computer, which to this day has not been returned despite the fact that he has not been charged with a crime.”
Other Uninvestigated Evidence Ignored by Clapper and Comey
Russ Tice, a former intelligence analyst for the United States Air Force, Office of Naval Intelligence, Defense Intelligence Agency, and NSA, alleged that the Obama administration tapped judges and SCOTUS. Tice continued on Sibel Edmond’s BoilingFrogsPost, saying that they even “tapped members of Congress and the military.”
Guccifer 2.0’s content from the DNC server has never been investigated or it would be found that it is the same content as the first and second Wikileaks content.
Guccifer 2.0’s content from the Democratic Congressional Caucus that was hacked and released has been completely ignored and is directly pertinent to the DNC hacking and the leaks coming from members of congress.
The Awan brothers and their wives and cousin need to be investigated. Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan made $4 million from 2010 – 2016. They were banned from Capitol Hill and finally are under D.C. Capitol Hill investigation for theft. The proxy server that they established is undoubtedly part of the intelligence leaks and constitutes a national security espionage case of enormous proportion. Debbie Wasserman Schultz protected Imran Awan from being fired by changing his title to “advisor” instead of technology support.
Wikileak’s content from the DNC server shows fraud in the Democratic presidential primary, as well as the George Soros/Podesta connection and the strategies that led the fraudulent activity of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Furthermore, the D.C. leaks and George Soros connections with the DNC, CIA, the Democratic Caucus, Nancy Pelosi, and John Podesta affiliations with Russians are lying just beneath the surface of Washinton’s nasty swamp.
The death of Seth Rich who was an alleged DNC leaker murdered in Washington D.C. and the reports of detective Rod Wheeler that indicate the gross discrepancies in the botched police investigation and the involvement of the FBI. Seth Rich’s computer was confiscated and “lost” somewhere in between the FBI and D.C. police.
Dmitri Alperovitch (CrowdStrike) who had previously been arrested by the FBI for cyber hacking, and his father Michael, former Russian Nuclear Scientist and now chief U.S. cryptologist and encryption specialist. CrowdStrike has placed its remote access called Falcon on over 80 congressional computers after the Guccifer 2.0 hacking of the DCC.
Clapper also refused to conduct a national security assessment after revelations that former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had used a private server to store work-related emails — including some that had classified information.
In other words, Clapper and Comey never looked in the right places to find the true evidence of Russian meddling in the presidential election or Trump/Russian collusion. Comey was the source of the three October surprises of the Trump Russian dossier, Trump Towers server, and the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC server to support Trump and demean Hillary Clinton. Comey has worked non-stop since 2015 to make sure that Hillary Clinton would become president without all those inconvenient investigations getting in the way.
Comey was there to once again “fix” Clinton crimes and evade investigations and prosecution. If the true evidence were to come to light, Comey would go to jail. That is why Comey and Clapper are continuously making mistakes in their testimony; they are terrified that the truth will come out.

What we are witnessing is the continuous erosion of the U.S. intelligence community that is about to collapse altogether. The corporate intelligence “house of cards” is being blown over by the Trump-effect that is like a mirror that reflects to criminals the very crimes they have committed.
