Trump Collusion Investigation: FBI Behavior An Offense To Political Order

1 Share
The FBI should brush up on the powers of the chief executive.
The FBI took it upon itself to determine whether the president of the United States is a threat to national security.
No one had ever before thought that this was an appropriate role for the FBI, a subordinate agency in the executive branch, but Donald Trump isn’t the only one in Washington trampling norms. 
The New York Times reported the astonishing news. “Counterintelligence investigators,” the paper writes, “had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security.” U.S. presidents over the decades have made many foolhardy decisions that have undermined our security; never before have they been deemed a fit subject for an FBI investigation. 
The proximate cause for the probe into Trump was his firing of FBI director James Comey, which the FBI considered both a potential crime and a national-security matter because it might shut down the investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election. 
Even if they were shocked by the treatment of Comey, top FBI officials should have been able to quickly ascertain that the Russia investigation continued unimpeded — indeed, it is still ongoing today.

Bytes, Bombs, and Spies: The Strategic Dimensions of Offensive Cyber Operations

Today the Brookings Institution is publishing our edited volume, "Bytes, Bombs, and Spies: The Strategic Dimensions of Offensive Cyber Operations." And here is the first introductory chapter, in which we overview the books and its arguments.
The book, which grew out of a Hoover Institution workshop in partnership with U.S. Cyber Command, gathers in one place the thinking of more than 20 distinguished researchers from academia and think tanks as well as former policymakers in the Department of Defense and U.S. intelligence community.
Contributors address four important and interrelated themes regarding the strategic dimensions of offensive cyber operations: cyber strategy and doctrine for offensive use of cyber weapons; operational considerations in using cyber weapons; escalation dynamics and deterrence; and the role and relationship of the private sector to offensive cyber operations. All these themes are even more important now than when we began this project. We hope the book will help policy makers understand how best to integrate offensive cyber capabilities with other instruments of military and national power.  
Readers of these chapters may agree or disagree with them individually, but taken as a whole, they clearly demonstrate that it is possible to make considerable headway in understanding offensive cyber operations without access to classified information and without needing an entirely new array of analytical concepts and tools.  Indeed, many of the questions and issues that attend to the strategic dimensions of offensive cyber operations arise in other kinds of military operations, but because the cyber domain is unlike other domains of conflict in important ways, some of the answers and responses to these questions and issues in the cyber domain are different.

Robert Mueller reveals two key new Trump-Russia criminal targets, and one of them is in Congress


Even as Donald Trump tries the last ditch move of trying to install William Barr as his corrupt new Attorney General, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is busy reminding everyone that it’s far too late for anything like that to stop him. To that end, Mueller has just revealed two key criminal targets – and one of them is a Republican Congressman.


Robert Mueller made new court filings in the Paul Manafort case on Thursday which revealed that he is in fact criminally targeting alleged Russian spy Konstantin Kilimnik. Why does this matter? Manafort was using Kilimnik as his Kremlin liaison during the election, in the plot to rig the result in Donald Trump’s favor. Kilimnik’s location is unknown, and even if Putin hasn’t killed him off, it’s unlikely he’ll ever be hauled into court. So you’re probably more interested in the other new Mueller target, the one who’s actually going to prison.


That’s a guy by the name of Devin Nunes. We all know he’s guilty of obstruction of justice, because we all watched him commit much of it in plain sight. But now, according to the Daily Beast, Robert Mueller is investigating Nunes for his role in meeting with Michael Flynn and Turkey during the transition period. Flynn was busy plotting serious crimes with Turkey in this timeframe. It’s not known precisely what Nunes’ role was. But it matters greatly that he had a role at all.

Robert Mueller was always going to have to meet a high legal bar to prove in court that Devin Nunes committed obstruction of justice on Donald Trump’s behalf, because obstruction is usually associated with improperly protecting yourself. But now that we know Nunes had a role in the original Trump-Flynn scandal, it’ll help prove that Nunes was indeed trying to protect himself when he tried to obstruct the investigation into Trump. Also, Mueller is only letting the media know about the Nunes probe because he’s already got Nunes nailed; he’s signaling to Nunes to come in and cut a plea deal.

Adam Schiff drops the hammer on Donald Trump nominee William Barr


Now that all of his other antics have failed to stop Robert Mueller from reaching the finish line, we’re seeing Donald Trump try to install William Barr – a guy who has already gotten a head start committing obstruction of justice with his appearances on Fox News – as Attorney General.



Senate Republicans have enough votes to confirm William Barr, so the only thing Senate Democrats can do is use these confirmation hearings to expose Barr so thoroughly, a few Republicans become afraid to take the career risk of voting for him. The odds of that working aren’t great, because in general, there are no depths to which today’s GOP won’t sink. But there is a wildcard in the mix.





Even if William Barr is confirmed, the House committees, all of which are Democrat-controlled, can force Barr to come in and testify on a regular basis. If Barr is attempting to commit obstruction of justice, the Democrats can call him out for it in real time on live national television, thus perhaps spooking Barr into backing off, for fear he’ll end up in prison. So it matters that House leaders are already dropping the hammer on this guy.

After William Barr’s stunningly inept, dishonest, and corrupt answers during his testimony on Tuesday, House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff tweeted this: “Call me old fashioned, but America deserves an Attorney General committed to following the advice of ethics lawyers. Call me naive, but there are attorneys qualified to serve as AG who have not expressed hostility to the Mueller probe. Call me what you will, but demand better.” Barr isn’t going to like being routinely hauled before Schiff’s committee.

Russian agents 'reel in' unsuspecting Americans and trick them into treason using these techniques: former CIA director

1 Share

Former CIA director John Brennan explained Tuesday night how Russian intelligence manages to lure Americans into committing treason during an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.”
Hayes noted that a statement Brennan made during a Congressional hearing in 2017 stuck with him over the years — and related it to a New York Times report that emerged Friday night confirming that the FBI opened an investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia prior to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.
SPONSORED
“You said ‘people who frequently go on a treasonous path do not know they’re on a treasonous path until it is too late,'” the host said, quoting the former CIA director. “How does that apply to what we’re learning about the concerns of people inside the FBI about the president’s behavior?”
“Russian intelligence services are adept and they will try to cultivate relationships with individuals and get individuals to do things they shouldn’t do and find them in, let’s say, compromising positions and use that as a way to intimidate these individuals to further cooperate with them,” Brennan said.
People who have relationships with Russians — or with others they didn’t even know were Russians — find themselves in positions where they “were doing things they should not have done,” the former CIA director said.
“It’s like reeling in a fish,” Brennan said. “You bring them home and you allow them to then do more and more things because they are ready in this predicament.”
The former intelligence chief noted that during his May 2017 testimony, he acknowledged that members of the Trump campaign who interacted with Russian officials may or may not have known they were being “reeled in” — but continued because they “wanted some type of quid pro quo.”
“That, I think, would be inexcusable, if they, in fact, were seeking some type of favor from the Russians to protect things that happened in the past or something in the future,” Brennan added.
