Fox News Under FBI Counterintelligence Investigation

Sources with links to the justice department report that Fox News is under an FBI counterintelligence investigation for co-ordinating with the Kremlin in broadcasting propaganda.

While the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and journalistic freedom, sources say that signals intelligence gathered from so-called ‘incidental collection,’ such as NSA collection on Sputnik and Russia Today,  which is ongoing.

Specifically, Sean Hannity is on signals intelligence co-ordinating his pro-Trump message with organs of the Russian state, such as RT, Sputnik, Wikileaks and Julian Assange. However, emails co-ordinating messaging with registered agents of the Russian state are said to exist from more shows than that of Sean Hannity.

Furthermore, sources familiar with the matter say that the FBI is actively considering a referral to the FCC, in addition to any criminal prosecutions that may result for individuals not registering under FARA for coordinating with official agents of the Russian state.

A great many of Fox News’ employees, anchors and executives have reported fearlessly on Trump and Russia, including Shep Smith. The problems appear to be executive based and systemic, these sources say, and a referral to the FCC is being considered. The First Amendment protects journalistic freedom, but systemic and repeated coordination with official organs of the Russian state is regarded as knowing collaboration with an enemy attack on America. Referral to the FCC is an option under consideration at a corporate level, sources report, and prosecutions for chief malicious actors, in particular Sean Hannity, are probable, these sources say.

EXCLUSIVE: Eric Schneiderman Had Donald Trump Under State Surveillance

FISA is not the only fruit.

Sources with links to New York State justice and law enforcement report that Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York State, had Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump, under legal direct surveillance for some time at state level on an Enterprise Corruption case against Russian mobsters.

‘People are only looking at FISA. They forgot state law,’ one source said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matters discussed.

The RICO case – specifically, ‘Enterprise Corruption’, the name given in New York state law, formed the basis of the existing sealed indictment against Donald Trump presently at the Eastern District Court of Virginia. FISC retains some jurisdiction, but what precisely, sources did not specify.

The way in which Attorney General Schneiderman’s state case became a Federal indictment was reported exclusively by me at Patribotics. RICO and Enterprise Corruption cases are typically principally on financial and other crimes such as money laundering, corruption and so forth. However, in this case, there were also national security implications, which is why FISC took jurisdiction of the case from Schneiderman once it was determined that it touched upon Federal issues. Mr. Schneiderman dismissed his case at state level in order that his evidence should form the basis of a federal case. As a state Attorney General, Schneiderman did not need a judge’s permission to do this.

The existence of the sealed indictment against Donald Trump was reported by Claude Taylor and me exclusively for Patribotics.

There will be more on this breaking story later today.

 

Exclusive: GCHQ Has Recordings of Donald Trump Jr and Kushner’s Russia Meeting

Sources with links to the Five Eyes intelligence communities report that the entire meeting that Donald J Trump Jr and Jared Kushner took with Russian intelligence over Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails is on tape. Multiple recordings and transcripts exist. At least one set of these is in the hands of British intelligence at GCHQ.

It is presumed but not known for certain, therefore, that US intelligence would already have these recordings.

The Five Eyes agreement prohibits the United Kingdom both from surveilling Americans without judicial permission from the US and from conducting surveillance operations on American soil. However, exploits allowing the phones of every Russian national at the meeting to be used as a “hot mike”, in other words, to record what those around them are saying, had already been placed on the phones of the Russian intelligence agents and assets present. This excludes Boris Epshteyn, who although he is an FSB agent and a long-term Russian asset, these sources say, is also a U.S. citizen.  Mr. Epshteyn, through lawyers, has adamantly denied that he is an FSB agent and has demanded Patribotics remove reporting on him. Although I have updated my stories to reflect his denials, I stand by my reporting. Mr. Epshteyn’s lawyers declined, in writing, to say whether or not he had been advised by the FBI or law enforcement to register under FARA, the Foreign Agents Registration Act, instead asking me who my sources were and when I received my information from them, questions to which I in turn have refused to respond.

The resulting recordings form a complete record of the meeting. If, as must be assumed, British intelligence has passed them to their American counterparts, the evidence would be fully legal as any Americans on tape would be “incidental collection” to the targeting of the Russian spies Kushner, Trump Jr and Epshteyn met with in order to commit espionage against the integrity of a US election with a foreign power.

Exclusive: Donald Trump Called into a Trump Tower Russian Spy Meeting

Sources with links to the intelligence community and the justice department report that Donald Trump himself is on tape calling in to a meeting at Trump Tower, where collusion with Russians was discussed.

Sources could not confirm, however, that the meeting where collusion in the election was discussed was the one at which his son, Donald J Trump Jr, recently admitted to conspiring with Russians to hack the election.

They pointed out that there was more than one meeting at Trump Tower where attacking the integrity of the US election was discussed by Trump campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government.

The source of the recording of Mr. Trump was his campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman. His phone had been legally hacked by the United States intelligence community under an SS7 exploit and turned into a ‘hot mike’ where he was, unbeknownst to him, recording all those with whom he was speaking.

Manafort officially left the Trump campaign in the summer. However, it is important to note that he lived in Trump Tower throughout. He was also working on the campaign throughout.

Sources drew attention to the possibility, even the probability,  that Mr. Trump was recorded at more than one meeting committing treason with Russian representatives. For reasons I will discuss in a second article, I believe that Trump called in to a different meeting later in the year in Trump Tower, whether or not he called into, or was present at, the Don Jr meeting.

Authority for the FBI to hot-mike Paul Manafort’s phone was granted by the Foreign Intelligence Services Court, which provided two warrants to Director Comey on October 15 for  ‘any US person’ in relation to money laundering and other offenses related to national security granted against Alfa Bank and SVB Bank.

Mr. Trump appeared to confirm his knowledge of the bad news of a huge amount of SIGINT, or Signals Intelligence, existing against him on March 3rd. He sent out a string of tweets which themselves were crimes of obstruction of justice, revealing evidence in an ongoing top secret and criminal investigation against the Attorney General Jeff Sessions and members of the Trump campaign as a whole.

On that day, Trump tweeted two tweets about Jeff Sessions’ meetings with Ambassador Kislyak and several more alleging that President Obama ‘had my phones tapped’. The media at the time concentrated wholly on Trump’s fallacious accusations against President Obama. This was a reporting failure. The tweets should be read as a whole, relating to what was in Trump’s mind at the time.

I found my work on Trump Russia dragged into an enormous spotlight following Mr. Trump’s tweets. Knowing that Mr. Trump had revealed absolutely top-secret evidence and committed a serious crime, obstruction of justice, live on Twitter, the White House sent out my own reporting on the FISA warrant against Alfa Bank and SVB Bank of Nov 7th. I had the bizarre experience of hearing that paragraphs of my report were being read live by Sean Spicer from the White House podium; however, my report at no time made any mention of ‘phones being tapped’ in Trump Tower, still less, that President Obama had ordered this. I was forced to make the rounds of the media to point out that at no time had I suggested Mr. Trump’s phones were tapped. I reported a warrant (below corrected to two warrants) and not what the FBI did with that warrant; nor did I have knowledge of what Director Comey did with his warrant. If Mr. Trump could rely on ‘previous reporting’ for the evidence his tweets revealed, he could avoid an obstruction of justice charge. I was keen to deny that my reporting had ever suggested surveillance on Trump, or on Trump Tower; or that President Obama had ordered it.

For reasons I will discuss in a second article, I believe that Donald Trump called in to a different meeting, later in the year, in Trump Tower, whether or not he called into, or was present at, the Don Jr meeting.
