Is an unexpected October Surprise on the way?
They think it's a bad thing, but I give The Nation credit for reportorial digging. The hard-left magazine has discovered that federal law enforcement agencies (though not the FBI) have been tracing whom the mobs in Portland have been communicating with. The apparent lead role in utilizing hi tech and classified electronic means is being played by the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), while the U.S. Marshals Service is dispatching street-level personnel. This bypasses the FBI, whose director, Christopher Wray, is on the record in sworn testimony, dismissing any such superstructure:
"It's not a group or an organization. It's a movement or an ideology," he said, explaining that "folks who subscribe or identify" with antifa do not operate at a national level, but instead organize "regionally into small groups or nodes."
Cell phone cloning involves stealing a phone's unique identifiers and copying them to another device in order to intercept the communications received by the original device. The former intelligence officials described it as part of a "Low Level Voice Intercept" operation, declining to go into further detail one of them citing the sensitive nature of the surveillance tool and the other an ongoing leak investigation within I&A.

Probably a Triggerfish or a Stingray intercept.
Not a new concept —
But the FBI fails on purpose by shrugging and saying there is no organization.
Oh, terrorist cells.
Obviously Portland is the Antifa/BLM hub. Theyve been rioting every night except when they went out to burn up the state!
A great example of why all federal enforcement activities should NOT be within one department. There was a move long ago under Nixon to do just that but fortunately it did not prevail. True, some were moved into Homeland Security when it was formed but at least they are NOT in DOJ.
REALITY CHECK: the mob taking over the streets has done something never seen before in history:
<><> allied itself with "the ruling class" against the middle class.
<><> "the ruling class" seeks absolute power, unhindered by our representative democracy.
<><> the mob wants their spoils the emotional gratification that comes from wreaking havoc,
<><> acquiring the power of inflicting fear over others,
<><> the practical benefits of looting.

SOMEONE tells the terrorists where to go.
Someone delivers supplies, food, and provides transport and lodging.
Need to grab them (not arrest them) and waterboard them.
Why is the FBI totally corrupt, from head to tail?
To put it differently, Rush Limbaugh correctly predicted some weeks ago that the real issues that would affect the election were not yet on the table. The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the media obsession with her successor may be considered the first of such issues and the beginning of Act Three. The activities of John Durham and the other federal prosecutors may also figure in the act. But if the activities of the DHS and U.S. Marshals Service lead to indictments or at least the exposure of the ties behind the rioters, that could provide even more factual basis for voters to reconsider assumptions that the media have foisted on the public.
I smell Bill Ayers behind this.
He doesn’t need a trip to Fantasy Island because this is his fantasy.
The Nation obviously wants to warn the anarchists, and those who organize and fund them, to be more careful with communications security.
I’ve been hoping for LE to connect and expose the rioters with Dem politicians and funding. With DHS and US Marshall’s handling this instead of FBI, there is at least the possibility of success.
The US Marshals do not need an entrenched Union of analysts.
The Marshals can deputize unbiased people, then released them when the task is complete.
The Marshals can go anywhere to pursue criminals
I wonder how many in DOJ and other parts of the government are involved with organizing, directing or funding ANTIFA/BLM/REVCOM.
“regionally into small groups or nodes.”
I feel so relieved now.
“The Nation obviously wants to warn the anarchists, and those who organize and fund them, to be more careful with communications security.”
That is exactly what this is.
Or... by design, completely out of the loop. Leakers and traitors at the FBI are certain to tip off the targets
FBI’s Wray is busy trying to blame all the rioting and destruction on “white supremacists”, what a dirtbag he is and why is he still there? The other day he was saying that there is no evidence of voter fraud ever.
...while the U.S. Marshals Service is dispatching street-level personnel. This bypasses the FBI, whose director, Christopher Wray, is on the record in sworn testimony, dismissing any such superstructure.
By the way, the U.S. Marshals Service helped locate the fugitive Whitey Bulger in 6 months after the FBI had failed to locate Bulger for 16 years. Of course the Boston FBI office had a history of corrupt FBI agents who actually *helped* Bulger, so it’s not too much of a surprise.
