Senate Select Committee

Senate Intel Part 4 Report, The True Headline: 90% Redacted, What is Missing?

The great reveal finally happened, as the Senate Select Committee On Intelligence (part 4) was published. Many media outlets were quick to come to various conclusions to make bombastic claims about the Russian Collusion story against Trump. Here are just a couple:

WASHINGTON (AP)  – A bipartisan Senate report released Tuesday affirms the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusions that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election in a far-ranging influence campaign approved by Russian President Vladimir Putin and aimed at helping Donald Trump win the White House. The headline on the AP read: Senate panel backs assessment that Russia interfered in 2016

Daily Caller – The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released a report Tuesday supporting the U.S. intelligence community’s finding in early January 2017 that the Russian government meddled in the 2016 election with the goal of helping Donald Trump win the presidency. The headline read from the Federalist: Senate Intel Backs Assessment That Russia Interfered To Help Trump, Ignores Revelations Of Dossier Disinformation

First, instead of reading the headline and the bylines, look at the report itself. I promise it won’t take long, maybe 2 minutes, even though it is 158 pages:

Select Committee On Intelligence United States Senate On Russian Active Measures Campaigns And Interference In The 2016 U.S. Election Volume 4: Review Of The Intelligence Community Assessment – Click here for download.

If you can’t read, here, take a look at the photo below of a few pages – they all look the same. Even the table of contents was heavily redacted:

One of the stated goals of the Senate Intelligence Committee Investigation into the 2016 election was to determine the accuracy of the Intelligence Community Assessment delivered to the American People in January 2017 regarding Russian Interference. The ICA, we now know, utilized information obtained from “Crossfire Hurricane,” which most recently has been revealed as an illicit FBI investigation into the Trump Presidential Campaign – see here.

AG Bill Barr, in an April Fox News interview, recently stated:

“I think the president has every right to be frustrated because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history, the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia without any basis. Even more concerning, actually, is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president,” Barr said. “To sabotage the presidency, and I think that – or at least have the effect of sabotaging the presidency.”

Right Wire Report suggests the bombshell headline should have focused on what was not found in the Burr/Warner Senate Intelligence Committee Report unredacted sections:

  • The report does not even accurately state the timeline or get basic facts correct. It states Crossfire Hurricane was officially opened on July 30, 2016, however, the actual date was July 31, 2016.
  • The report did not include that the Steele Dossier was Russian disinformation.
  • There is no mention that on the ICA Annex A (a summary of the dossier), private clients (DNC and Hillary Clinton) paid for the Steele Dossier – multiple persons inside the FBI team and DOJ were aware of client paid source at the time.
  • The Steele Dossier was heavily sourced and relied upon by the IC (Intelligence Community) and FBI for their initial findings to start investigations. Despite knowing at the time, investigations began that the Steele Dossier was Russian Disinformation.
  • The report did not note the only version of the ICA that included the dossier was the most highly classified version that went directly to President Obama.
  • The report does not include that Bill Priestap (Former assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division) told Congress under oath, “The FBI didn’t want to stand behind the information in the Steele Dossier.” No notation that one week earlier (Priestap testimony), the FBI had “stood behind” the dossier allegations in the third FISA request on Carter Page. And would proceed in July to obtain a fourth FISA on the same premise.

Reviewing the SICI Report’s black ink-filled pages, one thing comes clear. It appears Senator Burr and Senator Warner( Majority and Minority Chairmen) was complacent, possibly complicit, allowing the IC’ original generated flawed information to judge the credibility of the IC work product. Former Federal Prosecutor Andrew McCarthy’s piece additionally summarizes the “Useless Committee’s Report.”

Presently the Senate is conducting an ethics investigation involving Senator Burr and others involved in millions obtained from stock sales via inside trading information on the Coronavirus. Sen. Burr is in the middle of this major scandal, and there is every reason to assume the DOJ is involved too. Burr, against that backdrop, just happens to release a heavily redacted report which supports the Obama Intelligence communities talking points? Coincidence?

The Democrats and media complex raised the roof, demanding Mueller’s report be fully unredacted. “Crickets” as neither is calling for the heavily redacted Senate report to be revealed so we can see the sourcing and how they arrived at their conclusions.

Yet another “nothing-burger.” How could anyone come up with any conclusion from this report? Why the Senate Select Committee On Intelligence chooses not to be transparent is another question. The headline should be: Senate Intel Part 4 Report 90% Redacted, What is Missing?

Enough said …

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living abroad in Europe as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.

  1. Deep state covering the Deep State’s butt? More proof that the corruption goes far deeper than many expected.
    Trump is anti-corruption and therefore has many in high places against him both domestic and foreign.
    When do we call these subversive saboteurs and colluders by their real name?
    All eyes look to Barr+Durham now.
    MAGA KAG 2020!!!
