EXCERPT: There is a direct benefit from Rogers retirement. His job at the NSA complete, Admiral Rogers is now free to testify
For those less familiar, heres a timeline of events transpiring at the NSA:
November 2015-April 2016 The FBI and DOJs National Security Division (NSD) uses private contractors to access raw FISA information using To and From FISA-702(16) & About FISA-702(17) queries.
March 2016 NSA Director Rogers becomes aware of improper access to raw FISA data.
April 2016 Rogers orders the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.
April 18 2016 Rogers shuts down FBI/NSD contractor access to the FISA Search System.
April-September 2016 Rogers continues his investigation.
September 26 2016 DOJs NSD Head John Carlin files the Governments proposed 2016 Section 702 certifications. The filing does not disclose the FISA Abuses. Carlin is aware of Rogers compliance review. The 2016 certifications are scheduled for Court approval on October 26, 2016.
September 27 2016 Carlin announces he is resigning. Mary McCord will later assume his position.
October 15, 2016 Carlin formally leaves the NSD.Mid-October 2016 DNI Clapper submits a recommendation to the White House that Director Rogers be removed from the NSA. Clappers effort fails.
October 20 2016 Rogers is briefed by the NSA compliance officer on the Section 702 NSA compliance audit and About query violations.
October 21 2016 Rogers shuts down all About Query activity. Rogers reports the activity to DOJ and prepares to go before the FISA Court.
October 21 2016 DOJ & FBI seek and receive a Title I FISA probable cause order authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page from the FISC. At this point, the FISA Court is unaware of the Section 702 violations.
October 24 2016 Rogers verbally informs the FISA Court of Section 702(17) violations.
October 26 2016 Rogers formally informs the FISA Court of 702(17) violations in writing.
October 26, 2016 The FISA Court refuses to formalize the 2016 Section 702 certifications. A complete overhaul of Section 702 processes ensues.
November 17 2016 (morning) Rogers travels to meet President-Elect Trump and his Transition Team in Trump Tower. Rogers does not inform DNI James Clapper.
November 17 2016 (evening) Trump Transition Team announces they are moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.
This man deserves the highest honor our nation can bestow on him because without him we might have lost the Republic!
Before you guys start planning the ticker tape parade let me point out that when Rogers informed Trump in November he had known for almost a year what was up.
The hero of spygate.
I have a 100% favorable opinion on Mike Rogers. He was the first (and only) one who alerted Trump that he was being wiretapped in Trump Tower. The next day the entire campaign was moved to Joisey. I am not sure quite when that occurred on the above timeline; I think very early 2016. Had he not raised the stink, it may not have been known until six months later, or worse. For that, I am entirely grateful.
But I have seen multiple YouTubes of him testifying before Congress that “there was no way” the FBI/CIA etc; was surveilling Trump. Was he faking them out? I don’t know.
A fact that simply VERIFIES that the scheme was run out of the Obama administration.
Rogers valued his life and the life of his family too much to speak publicly or speak to Obama regarding something that Obama wanted to keep hidden.
No “might” about it!
And Trump knows it. I’m convinced that’s what gives him the strength and courage to fight the good fight to expose those who use their positions in government to undermine our FREE REPUBLIC!!
Rogers is probably the reason that Mueller didn’t choose even a single independent or Republican for his team. The lesson the Fusion GPS/CIA/FBI/Mueller team took from their experience with Adm. Rogers is that if you’re up to no good, it’s too much of a risk to have even a single good (or even just independent) person who might blow the whistle.
Yeah, I thought that part of the timeline was strange.
C’mon RB, this is a good red-pill thread...don’t get it yanked by baiting the trolls like donkeyhumper or the soi-boi.
I’m with you.
BTW, y’all make a mean pre-packaged tortilla. I get them all the time at Meijer.
Since early 2017 I have been working with an alternative theory of what actually happened:
1. The Trump team knew about the surveillance long before Rogers visited Trump Tower on November 17, 2016. Rogers may have even been the one who informed them about it months earlier.
2. The Trump Tower visit was simply for the purpose of optics -- to help give a public impression that the Trump people were learning about the surveillance for the first time.
3. The Trump team used the surveillance to their advantage by using it to feed disinformation about the campaign to the Obama/Clinton cabal.
“This man deserves the highest honor our nation can bestow on him because without him we might have lost the Republic!”
Admiral Mike, saved our country.
Without his brave actions behind the scenes and with President Elect Trump and President Trump, the attempted coup by the rats in the CIA/FBI/DOJ would have succeeded.
We are still waiting for the White Hats in the FBI/DOJ to come out and expose and shred the evil bastards in those departments, who led the Russia/Russia coup attempt.
The mods won’t......................
Thanks for posting this excellent report on how Admiral Mike saved our country.
If there are not any White Hats in the FBI/DOJ like Admiral Mike, and they don’t step forward to expose the coup leaders!
It is time to close down the FBI and DOJ.
The new head of the CIA maybe turning that serpent nest around. If not, get rid of it and let our military intel handle the task.
Even if it's written in clear English?
FYI, and we are still waiting for some FBIDOJ white hats to step out and be like Admiral Mike.
If we don’t see any, maybe the FBI/DOJ can become the Dodo bird departments in America.
Rogers is an American hero and Patriot.
Morning Grampa! Just posted this on another thread. I had forgotten that Victoria Toensing is representing some white hats in the FBI and has been for almost two years. Don’t have anymore details, but it’s yet another indication that there really were/are “other” investigations underway.
