Charles S. (Sam) Faddis, Senior Partner – Artemis, LLC is a former CIA operations officer with thirty years of experience in the conduct of intelligence operations claims that the IG report is proof that the Russia Hoax was a planned and executed covert operation. In other words, it was a plan that was cooked up for the purpose of driving President Trump from office.
According to the IG report, the CIA gave the FBI a paper informing them that Carter Page was assisting them with Russians suspected of breaking our laws. Why is this important? Because if they had notified the court that Page was working as an informer for the CIA, any contact he had with Russian officials could be assumed to be in line with the assistance he gave the CIA.
Michael Horowitz found 17 incidents where the FBI either didn’t follow procedures or intentionally withheld vital information from the FISA court. And as far as the DNC server is concerned, why were the7y so willing to say the Russians hacked it with no proof? He could be right about their motive.
The essence of a coup, which some might refer to as covert action, is the hidden hand. One does not announce that a foreign power is overthrowing the government and installing a new government. One pulls strings as if from behind a curtain, making events that are all part of a carefully orchestrated plan appear disconnected, spontaneous and serendipitous.
As I read through the recently released IG report for the second time, as someone with a great deal of experience in military and intelligence matters, I see that hand everywhere.
Per the IG report, a single report is delivered to the FBI in the summer of 2016. It concerns a meeting between a cooperative contact of a foreign intelligence service and a junior level employee of the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos. The report relates what are frankly very amorphous comments by Papadopoulos concerning the Russian government and its alleged possession of information on Hillary Clinton.
On any other day this report would command no attention whatsoever. The source in question has no track record of any kind with the FBI. Papadopoulos has been employed by the Trump campaign for perhaps 90 days at this point, and there is no reason to believe he has contacts of significance in the Kremlin.
Not on this occasion. This one report from a foreign intelligence service goes directly to the top of the FBI. The Director himself, James Comey is briefed. A full investigation is launched. Multiple confidential human sources are tasked. Wiretaps are ordered. A task force is organized. Crossfire Hurricane is born.
