Now that the 'Deep State' members from the first coup attempt, the Russian collusion hoax," are under investigation for their possibly illegal actions in regards to lying to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), as well as the actions of top level former intelligence community members from the Obama era in initiating an investigation into President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, we are now seeing an attempt at a "Deep State Coup Part 2."
These lower level career bureaucrats are the second string of players in the ongoing attempt to overturn the 2016 election, using leakers dubbed as "whistleblowers," who we now know had a working relationship with former Vice President Joe Biden.
Reference:Second String - A squad of players that are available either individually or as a team to relieve or replace the players who started the game.
With the DOJ Inspector General's investigation into possible FISA abuses concluded and the final draft of the report being written for release to the public, which will show whether or not high level intelligence community members who signed the FISA applications and renewals, to obtain warrants from the FISA court to surveil a member of the Trump campaign, Carter Page, committed fraud against the court by hiding the fact that the "Steele Dossier" was unverified, and was funded in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC.
• The October 2016 FISA application and January 2017 FISA renewal were both approved by then-FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.
• The April 2017 FISA renewal was approved by Comey and by Dana Boente. Boente is the only signatory still remaining in active government service, working as the Trump administration’s top lawyer at the FBI starting in January 2018.
• The June 2017 FISA renewal was approved by McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The second investigation is a review into the origins of the entire Russia investigation, by U.S. Attorney John Durham who was tapped to lead a team of investigators by Attorney General William Barr. That investigation, from what is known publicly at this time, includes the part foreign intelligence agencies helped the Obama administration, as well as actions taken by U.S. Intelligence agencies led by former FBI director James Comey, along with former Deputy director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Other names associated with the entire first coup attempt, which directly led to the nearly two year special counsel investigation, which cost tens of millions of dollars, and did not establish that any member of the Trump campaign, nor any American, conspired or coordinated with Russia, include but are not limited to: Former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI counsel Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr.
The latest news on the ongoing Durham investigation is that Durham has "expanded" his investigation, adding more agents and resources.
Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.
However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.
Attorney General Bill Barr and Durham traveled to Italy recently to talk to law enforcement officials there about the probe and have also had conversations with officials in the U.K. and Australia about the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the meetings.
All the names emphasized in bold print above, we will call the "First String." Now that the entire Russia collusion hoax has imploded and all the "first string" players are having their actions reviewed by the DOJ IG, AG Barr and U.S. Attorney Durham, the second string are taking the field, in yet another attempt to overthrow a duly elected President.
SECOND STRING TAKES THE FIELD.........
Having watched the first string players crash and burn when their Russian collusion hoax failed to unseat President Trump, and seeing that those same players are finding their own actions under investigation, the second string players are taking the field, but are doing so in secret, unnamed and anonymous, which has many digging deep to uncover who they are.
We know that the "whistleblower" was "detailed to the National Security Council at one point."
Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only "in the executive branch." The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he "was detailed to the National Security Council at one point."
Michael Atkinson, the Intelligence Community's inspector general, told members of Congress that the whistleblower had a "professional tie" to a 2020 Democratic candidate. He had written earlier that while the whistleblower's complaint was credible, he had shown "some indicia of an arguable political bias ... in favor of a rival political candidate."
A retired CIA officer told the Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president."
What we don't know is the culprits name, but between the facts that are known, there are a limited number of people it could be, and those are addressed by American Thinker, but out of the three mentioned, only one is a CIA employee.
The third name to attract attention is Eric Ciaramella, an intelligence officer specializing in Russia and the Ukraine. He was a staffer on the National Security Council, where he responsible for policy regarding Ukraine. He was H.R. McMaster’s personal aide, and during the Obama administration had worked with Susan Rice. Ciaramella had gained a reputation as an inveterate leaker, which he claimed, had resulted in “death threats” from “right-wingers.” This was the reason he gave for leaving the NSC in 2017.
Ciaramella’s ascension is surprising considering pro-Trump sources within the Obama administration disclosed to me in December, 2016 that Ciaramella’s helped draft Susan Rice’s anti-Trump talking points before the Inauguration.
In fall of 2016 as Obama’s director for Ukraine on the NSC, Ciaramella was the main force pushing Trump-Russia conspiracy theories.
Some suspect Ciaramella was one of the original leakers who told the media about classified conversations Trump had with Russian diplomat Sergei Lavrov. While it’s unproven that Ciaramella leaked that conversation, it is now a fact of life that he will have access to every conversation Trump has with foreign officials, as part of his official duties for McMaster.
By July 2017, liberal websites Newsweek and Just Security, claimed that in response to Cernovich's piece, "included online threats of violence against Ciaramella, which contributed to his decision to leave his job at the the National Security Council a few weeks early."
Cernovich’s writings and tweets have included false information, but sometimes they include details that only someone on the inside could know. For example, his tweets about Ciaramella were so specific that they documented meetings and lunches the NSC staffer had with certain people.
In the Politico piece they discussed how the career staffers were distrusted by Trump appointees, especially considering how many leaks to the press there were at the time.
The attacks were unprecedented, according to Washington veterans from both parties. Career officials felt betrayed, because it was obvious that the political appointees they worked with every day were leaking misleading information to the conservative press. “It was crazy that we couldn’t trust our own people,” one former staffer said. But the distrust went both ways when it came to leaks. As word reached the media about everything from the executive orders to accounts of Trump’s odd conversations with foreign leaders, the political appointees suspected the career staffers of leaking.
Interestingly, the Politico article also noted that because of the level of distrust was so bad that the career staffer "created an underground," which in hindsight, sounds a lot like a place where the second string players could plan their "coup part 2" attempt.
Another reason for the amount of chatter online about Ciaramella, is his work specifically related to Ukraine, and reports indicate that the "whistleblower" is "an experienced CIA official on the NSC with the deep knowledge of Ukraine that he demonstrated in his complaint." (Source - Washington Examiner)
While there has been no confirmation that Ciaramella is the "whistleblower," his deep knoweldge of Ukraine, the fact that he is a career staffer from the Obama era, was in a position that would allow him access to the calls between the President and other foreign leaders, and worked in the White House under president Trump long enough to have developed ties to others that have access to those calls now, makes his name one that stands out above others.
The fact that this initial anonymous leaker first filed a complaint without any first-hand knowledge, which has led to Democrat politicians raging with impeachment fever, the American people have the right to know who he is, what ties he has with any of the first string players that attempt the initial coup against President Trump, whether he has the political bias the IG stated he had, and whether he had leaked confidential information to the press in the past.
While the media continues to breathlessly report there are "other" whistleblowers coming forward, each one is in relation to the same phone call between President Trump and the Ukranian President, claiming they were "visably shaken" by the phone call, yet the transcript was already released by President Trump, so their "feelings" about it, frankly aren't relevant to anyone other than impeachment fever Democrats determined to destroy President Trump in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election.
The first string players failed to overthrow the President and are now under investigation, and with the help of the media and Democrat politicians, the second string has just taken the field to attempt the "Deep State Coup Part 2", and conservatives, Trump supporters and Independent Media must expose them to the light of day so they can be properly vetted, as well as to determine their true intentions.
In America, the accused deserves the right to face his accuser.
