basic enterprise is pretty straightforward albeit corrupt as hell.
During a period of November 2015 through April 18th 2016, Justice
Department political insiders and outside political contractors,
including Fusion-GPS, accessed the NSA and FBI database using
FISA-702(17) “About Queries”. They gathered information on candidate
Hillary Clinton’s political opposition including Donald Trump campaign
officials and affiliates.
was essentially deep state political opposition research being conducted
inside government for a considerable period of time. The information,
gathered on Clinton’s political opposition, was then weaponized against
the candidacy of Donald Trump.
being instructed by NSA Director Mike Rogers to conduct a full FISA
audit, the NSA compliance officer began querying
DOJ and FBI activity. As the compliance investigation closed in on
the operation, FBI officials grew nervous. Eventually contractor access
to ongoing FISA intelligence was
blocked effective April 18th, 2016.

doubt the November 2015 through April 2016 “compliance error rate” was
less severe than previous compliance error rates going back to 2012 (pg

systemic over multiple years:
unlawfully obtained FISA intelligence information appears to end up at a
central collection unit, Fusion GPS. There are many participating
members within Fusion; however, the key figures in this specific
enterprise are husband and wife Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby. Mary

Rose Law Firm. Mary Jacoby also brings the “Dossier
Trail” to the White House.

several months prior to being hired by Hillary
her law firm Perkins Coie, in April of 2016.
being shut out by the FISA Compliance Audit, and contracted by the
Clinton campaign, Fusion needed a back-door to access continued
information. That’s where Nellie Ohr comes in. Fusion hired Russian
expert and CIA network
ally Nellie Ohr, the wife of DOJ
deputy Bruce Ohr. Nellie, a part of the CIA network, could
use Bruce’s high level DOJ-NSD access to continue gathering FISA-702
data; and Nellie, Bruce and Glenn have collaborated on similar projects
in the past. [SEE
research indicates that Nellie Ohr then loosely contextualized the
extracted data into a draft or written narrative/story-line that painted
a false story of loose connections between candidate Donald Trump and
Ohr’s transcripts then get passed along to another Fusion contractor,
Christopher Steele; a retired MI6 agent who was also head of the
intelligence gathering unit in the U.K. known as The ‘Russia House’.
Presumably the Fusion intelligence hand-off to
Steele was to give the Ohr transcript some independent Chris Steele
intelligence bona fides.
an undetermined amount of back-and-forth transcript editing and memo
assemblies, the joint
collaboration between Fusion’s Nellie Ohr and
Christopher Steele appears to have become the “Trump-Russia Steele
Dossier”. [There are several key indications within the finished Dossier
that show Chris Steele did not author much of the content.]
if you directly follow all media reporting on the dossier’s construct
and origin, you’ll note the finished product was exclusively the
assembled and proprietary work of Fusion-GPS, NOTChristopher
John McCain had
to get his copy from Glenn Simpson at
Fusion-GPS, despite McCain’s intermediary, David Kramer, meeting
with Steele in England to discuss the content.
Glenn Simpson and Fusion-GPS are also facing numerous
lawsuits as it relates to the content of the
dossier. Christopher Steele is refusing to answer questions except in
court. The goal of gaining intelligence credibility for the dossier was
a one-way street.
Hillary Clinton and U.S. media now attempt to distance
themselves from the Dossier, they cannot escape the fact that
Clinton hired Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) and ultimately they created the

Russian disinformation within a document that she created. Hence,
Clinton has a dossier
problem, and it will not go away.
that said, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley completely predicted
that “hoodwinked by the Russians” would be the fall-back position by
Clinton and the FBI/DOJ insider team as it relates to their connection
to the dossier content.
Senator Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham sent the FBI a referral for
criminal prosecution of Christopher Steele based on statements from FBI
agents who attributed statements to Steele; those second-hand accounts
conflict with known evidence about the dossier content. –SEE
HERE– Grassley is calling the FBI’s bluff and demanding they
investigate the horrible British fibber while knowing the fibber isn’t
Steele – it’s the FBI.
