Assange Stopped From Releasing Source Of Leaked Emails After Comey Showed Up And Ended Him

Published

on

Julian Assange said – “Opponents past and present have the same essential weakness about them: first they want to use you, then they want to be you, then they want to snuff you out.”

It seems that Assange knew what he was talking about. The prelude leading up to one of the most devastating intelligence leaks in American history is nothing less than astounding. The unmasking of the CIA’s arsenal of cyber warfare weapons last year by Wikileaks has a backstory in which none other than disgraced former FBI director James Comey plays a starring role – as the villain.

John Solomon of The Hill, revealed a supporting cast of characters are some names many know due to the fallout from the phony Russian collusion scandal – Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Department of Justice (DOJ) official – Bruce Ohr, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, and American attorney Adam Waldman.

Solomon dropped the bombshell that a “stand down” order given by Comey to kill an imminent deal between the US Government and Julian Assange preceded the largest leak in CIA history, known as “Vault 7.” It seems that Assange was actually willing to redact the names of CIA employees. He also offered to provide technical evidence which would rule out “certain parties” like Russia for instance, in the DNC email leak.

The combined efforts of all involved resulted in the drafting of a limited immunity deal that might have temporarily freed the WikiLeaks founder from a London embassy where he has been exiled for years, according to interviews and a trove of internal DOJ documents turned over to Senate investigators. Read the draft immunity deal proffer that the Justice Department was considering for Assange here.

Comey killed any and all advanced negotiations with Assange and Wikileaks that would have safeguarded the lives of CIA agents who are now at risk. He also lost the opportunity to provide crucial key evidence in the ongoing Russian investigation, on purpose it seems. Apparently, Comey was not interested in the truth and he did not want anyone else to have it either and it seems he did not care if lives were endangered as a result.

An unexpected intervention by Comey killed the entire deal. That intervention was relayed through Warner soured the negotiations and as a result of Comey’s actions, Assange then chose to unleash a series of leaks that CIA officials claim damaged their cyber warfare capabilities for a long time to come.

The drama began to unfold in January of 2017 when Assange’s legal team approached D.C. lobbyist Adam Waldman to reach out and see if anyone in the Trump administration would negotiate with the WikiLeaks founder. Waldman was known for his connections, and especially with regards to his direct links to the Clintons. Waldman was also known for previously acting as an intermediary from 2009 – 2011 between Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and the FBI in searching for a retired FBI agent captured in Iran. In return, the FBI rewarded Deripaska by granting him entry to the United States after years of being banned.

Waldman was asked to work for Assange pro-bono, which he agreed to do. They hoped Waldman, a former Clinton Justice Department official, might be able to successfully navigate the U.S. law enforcement bureaucracy and find the right people to engage.

Assange also had an ace in the hole, a bargaining chip if you will in the form of a massive trove of CIA technical documents known as “Vault 7,” which detailed the agency’s massive cyber-warfare arsenal. Assange’s team then made contact. Waldman reached out to DOJ official Bruce Ohr. Ohr would later be demoted in December 2017 for his failure to disclose his previous interactions and secret meetings with Fusion GPS founder, Glenn Simpson.

Nellie Ohr, Bruce’s wife, was hired by Fusion GPS as part of the ongoing opposition research effort against the Trump campaign. Fusion is also the same company that produced the now infamous 35-page “Steele Dossier” written by former M16 spy Christopher Steele.

Waldman also promised Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) access to Steele in late March of 2017. The deal ended up falling through weeks later after Steele got cold feet. Waldman is in deep with the deep-state as a go-between or a middleman of sorts. Waldman and Ohr would meet in person on Feb. 3, 2017, in Washington. Waldman and Assange met three times in London.

Zero Hedge reports

“After Assange made clear that he would be open to redactions at most to protect the names of exposed officials, Ohr took Assange’s offer up the chain of command at the DOJ – which by and large held Assange in contempt.

Although the intelligence community reviled Assange for the damage his past releases caused, officials “understood any visibility into his thinking, any opportunity to negotiate any redactions, was in the national security interest and worth taking,” says a senior official involved at the time. –The Hill

(To reiterate, James Comey killed a deal that would have protected CIA officials in the line of duty and ostensibly ruled out Russia in the election leaks.)

After Ohr ran Assange’s offer up the flagpole, the DOJ assigned federal prosecutor David Laufman – an accomplished prosecutor and then-head of the DOJ’s counterintelligence and export controls section.

Waldman, Assange’s lobbyist, then contacted Laufman – where he laid out the groundwork for a deal that would grant Assange limited immunity and a one-time “safe passage” to leave the London embassy and talk with US officials.

The shuttle diplomacy soon resulted in an informal offer — known in government parlance as a “Queen for a Day” proffer — in which Assange identified what he wanted and what he might give. –The Hill

Laufman also “put an offer on the table from the intelligence community to help Assange assess how some hostile foreign powers might be infiltrating or harming WikiLeaks staff.”

Amid the negotiations, and perhaps to show the US government that he was serious, Assange released his first Vault 7 leak on March 7, 2017 – around 8,000 pages of documents concerning the CIA’s cyber weapons. The talks continued since US officials were very concerned about the remainder of Assange’s leaks.

“Dear David, I relayed our conversations to Assange and he had a generally positive view of it,” Waldman wrote Laufman in mid-March.

The shuttle diplomacy soon resulted in an informal offer — known in government parlance as a “Queen for a Day” proffer — in which Assange identified what he wanted and what he might give. –The Hill

Three weeks later on March 28, 2017, Waldman wrote Laufman with an advanced offer: “Subject to adequate and binding protections, including but not limited to an acceptable immunity and safe passage agreement, Mr. Assange welcomes the opportunity to discuss with the U.S. government risk mitigation approaches relating to CIA documents in WikiLeaks’ possession or control, such as the redaction of agency personnel in hostile jurisdictions and foreign espionage risks to WikiLeaks staff.”

Assange was also willing to discuss technical evidence which would rule out certain parties in the DNC leaks during the 2016 election – which the US Government believes were hacked by Russia – a charge Assange denies.

“Mr. Assange offered to provide technical evidence and discussion regarding who did not engage in the DNC releases,” Waldman told The Hill’s Solomon. “Finally, he offered his technical expertise to the U.S. government to help address what he perceived as clear flaws in security systems that led to the loss of the U.S. cyber weapons program.”

Inside Justice and the intelligence community, confidence grew that perhaps the mercurial Assange might adapt how he released classified information.

“As we give continued consideration to the substance of your proposed proffer, please clarify a procedural point,” Laufman wrote Waldman in early April. The government wanted to know if Assange’s demand for “safe passage” meant him coming to America, or just leaving the London embassy for meetings there.

What U.S. officials did not fully comprehend was that an earlier event weighed heavily on the Assange team’s distrust of U.S. intentions. –The Hill

Several days after the negotiations with Assange began, Warner reached out to Senator Warner to see if Senate Intelligence Committee staff desired any contact with Assange as part of their investigations.

Warner then reached out to James Comey – who ordered a stand-down.

“He told me he had just talked with Comey and that, while the government was appreciative of my efforts, my instructions were to stand down, to end the discussions with Assange,” Waldman told The Hill.

In disbelief at the news, Waldman went back to Laufman – who said: “You are not standing down and neither am I.”

Waldman couldn’t believe a U.S. senator and the FBI chief were sending a different signal, so he went back to Laufman, who assured him the negotiations were still on. “What Laufman said to me after he heard I was told to ‘stand down’ by Warner and Comey was, ‘That’s bullshit. You are not standing down and neither am I,’” Waldman recalled.

A source familiar with Warner’s interactions says the senator’s contact on the Assange matter was limited and was shared with Senate Intelligence chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.). But the source acknowledges that  Warner consulted Comey and passed along the “stand down” instructions to Waldman: “That did happen.” –The Hill

And with that, Assange got cold feet and backed out of the deal – releasing the entire “Vault 7” trove of information for which the DOJ just indicted former CIA computer engineer, Joshua Adam Schulte. And the rest is history.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

Do YOU think we have the best President and First Lady ever? Follow Amanda Shea on Twitter to get RIGHT daily insight!

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
