British Controlling Hand in Russiagate Exposed

Christopher Steele is the author of the so called Trump Dossier which alleges that, among other unproven charges, Russian President Putin has videos of Trump in a romp with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel, making Trump subject to “compromat” blackmail. Nunes, the Chair of the House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence (HPSCI) released his committee’s memo on February 2.

 

It shows that top officials of the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), including Director James Comey and DOJ officials Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein, approved the use of the Steele dossier, which they knew was a fraud, to obtain a warrant on October 21, 2016 from the super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (set up under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act — FISA), to spy on Carter Page, who had been an adviser to the Trump campaign.

The filing with the FISA court was renewed three times. In using the dossier in their filing, the FBI/DOJ officials did not tell the court that Steele had been paid by the Clinton campaign to produce the anti-Trump report, nor that Steele was also getting paid by the FBI. Neither did they report that Steele had been terminated by the FBI when it was discovered he had unauthorized contact with the press, as he was trying to sell his report to U.S. media. It is a felony to misrepresent evidence in a petition to the FISA Court.

As whistleblower Bill Binney described it, the Nunes’ memo proves that the FBI knowingly used “paid propaganda” produced by one campaign “to go after another campaign” in their filing. Binney, a former top official in the National Security Agency, was targeted and persecuted by the FBI, and is therefore very familiar with their modus operandi. Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told the committee in December 2017 that “no surveillance warrant would have been sought…without the Steele dossier information.”

Fired former FBI Director Comey, who also approved the applications to the FISA Court, told a Congressional hearing in June 2017 that the Steele dossier was “salacious and unverified” — yet, knowing this, he signed off on the use of the Steele dossier in the FISA court filing!

It is not just this intelligence, released by Nunes, which has produced howls of protest from the anti-Trumpers, from the Democratic leader of the HPSCI Adam Schiff, and media such as The New York Times, Washington Post and CNN.

John McCain, who presented the dossier to Comey in December 2016, accused Nunes and others involved in exposing DOJ/FBI corruption as “doing Putin’s work for him.” What they legitimately fear is that the Nunes’ memo represents what Binney called “a crack” which opens a view into the “corruption in the ‘secret government’.”

Nunes said he is working on “Phase 2”, which purportedly will look into the role of Obama State Department personnel in collaborating with Steele. One target of Nunes is Jonathan Winer, the Obama State Department’s special envoy to Libya, who is suspected of being an intermediary between Steele and Clinton political operative Cody Shearer, who drafted his own anti-Trump dossier. Steele used the Shearer dossier to “corroborate” his own findings, producing a two-page handwritten summary which he submitted to the FBI.

Some of this area of investigation has already been covered in a letter and a memo by Senators Grassley and Graham, who are calling for a criminal investigation of Steele’s communications with the FBI, according to a February 6 article in The Atlantic magazine. The article refers to the senators alleging that “Clinton associates” in the State Department “were feeding Mr. Steele’s accusations” against the Trump campaign, which challenges the credibility of the claim that Steele was a “neutral source” seeking evidence of “Russian meddling/Trump collusion.”

The investigation of Winer exposes another tentacle of British subversion of U.S. policy. From 2014 to 2016, Steele was providing intelligence reports to Winer on Russia and the coup against the elected Yanukovic government of Ukraine.

Winer, who became a friend of Steele during previous investigations, passed these on to the State Department’s Europe bureau, meaning they were received by Victoria Nuland, the neocon Deputy Secretary of State who played a hands-on role in coordinating the coup against Yanukovic, in conjunction with “pro-democratic” forces, including killer gangs of neo-Nazis.

Nuland said U.S. agencies spent over $5 billion to organize the coup. Lifting the cover off this operation, involving Steele and the Obama State Department, will not just shed light on the British role in orchestrating an anti-Russian policy, destroying Ukraine in the process, while imposing punitive sanctions against Russia, but also explains why the election of Trump caused so much hysteria in London and in Obama circles — he had pledged to end the “regime change” policies, such as that run against Ukraine, and instead to cooperate with Russia and Putin.

 

British Intelligence, the FBI and the Dodgy Dossier
One sign of involvement of the highest levels of British intelligence was the deployment this week of a Foreign Office attorney to a London High Court hearing, where a deposition of Steele was held. Steele is being sued by Aleksej Gubarev, who is accused by Steele of “hacking” Democratic Party emails during the campaign, supposedly on behalf of the Kremlin.

Steele did not show for the deposition, but his lawyer argued that he should not be forced to testify, as the deposition might “require the disclosure of sensitive information which could endanger U.K. national security interests and personnel.” The Foreign Office attorney was present to make sure that such “sensitive information” was not disclosed!

Another sign was a revealing article in The Washington Post on February 7, about Steele, titled “Hero or hired gun? How a former British spy became a flashpoint in the Russia investigation.”

The Post, despite being one of the leaders in the anti-Trump campaign, revealed that Steele was guided by the former chief of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, who headed MI6 from 1999 to 2004. The article states that Dearlove and a former British Ambassador to Moscow and associate of Steele, Sir Andrew Wood, steered him to the FBI.

According to the story, Steele and his partner went to Dearlove “for guidance”, as they claimed to be “rattled” by what they were discovering about Trump and Russia while compiling the “dodgy dossier”.

Dearlove was responsible for an earlier “dodgy dossier” — that is, the lying report on Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction”, which was used by then-Prime Minister Tony Blair to bolster arguments, in collaboration with George W. Bush, Cheney and the neocon unilateralists, for launching the second Iraq war, which toppled Saddam Hussein, devastated Iraq, and led to the creation of ISIS.

Dearlove said “he advised Steele and Burrows [Steele’s partner] to work discretely with a top British government official to pass along information to the FBI.” He praised Steele, whose expertise he described as “superb.”

One striking omission in the Post’s article was its failure to mention the role of Robert Hannigan in launching the targeting of Trump and Putin. Hannigan was the Director of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), which the {Guardian} described as the “principle whistleblower” of the Russian-Trump connection, which it allegedly discovered in the summer of 2015.

Hannigan personally passed the evidence compiled by the GCHQ to CIA Director John Brennan in June 2016. It was then that Brennan launched a “major inter-agency investigation,” which included the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper.

Steele’s first memo was completed on June 20, 2016, and his first meeting with an FBI official was on July 5, just weeks before Trump received the Republican nomination. Thus, before Obama’s intelligence apparat of Comey, CIA Director Brennan and Director of National Intelligence Clapper declared on January 6, 2017 that there was unassailable evidence that Russia meddled in the election, and Trump colluded with the Russians, it was GCHQ which initiated the fake narrative of Russiagate.

This was to be used as an “insurance policy”, should Trump win, as admitted in a text message to his FBI attorney mistress by FBI operative Peter Strzok, who was part of the inter-agency investigation.

 

Threats to Trump as RussiaGate Implodes

The British were reacting to Trump’s pledge to work with Putin, rather than to provoke him, as this prospect represented an existential threat to the imperial, geopolitical doctrine of a unilateral world, under London/Wall Street control. The hundreds of pages of text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page provide a glimpse of this hysteria, as the two wrote about plotting against Trump going on in “Andy’s office,” a reference to former Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe.


Strzok described himself as “riled up” over the possibility that Trump might win, referring to him as “a f**king idiot….What the f**k happened to our country?” Page responded by describing Trump as a “loathsome human being.” Both worked for a while on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, until the Justice Department’s Inspector General released the texts, and Strzok was removed.

He also played a lead role in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s violation of national security, by using an unsecured private email server when she was Secretary of State. She was eventually given a slap on the wrist, with Strzok advising Comey to weaken the language in his finding, so as to avoid the possibility of a felony charge against her.

During this time, Strzok admitted to Page that they have found “no there there” in the Trump investigation, meaning that no evidence exists to back the charges of meddling and collusion!

With the story of Russiagate falling apart, defenders of the FBI and CIA are resorting to blatant threats against the President. Philip Mudd, a former CIA counterintelligence official, who in August 2017 told CNN that “this government is going to kill this guy”, referring to Trump, lashed out against the Nunes’ memo on CNN on February 2.

Parroting the line of Congressional Democrats about the memo, he said it is an attack on the FBI’s “ability to conduct an investigation with integrity….The FBI people are ticked…You think you can intimidate the director? You better think again, Mr. President.” He added, “I know how the game is played. We’re going to win.”

CNN host Wolf Blitzer responded, “You don’t want the FBI angry at you,” followed by Gloria Borger, CNN’s chief political analyst blurting out, “Trump is playing a dangerous game.” It should be noted that CNN just hired Josh Campbell, a former top aide to Comey, to join their team, while NBC television hired John Brennan to provide “commentary.”
Not to be outdone, The Washington Post ran an op ed by Eugene Robinson on February 5 titled “Trump has picked a fight with the FBI. He’ll be sorry.”

Writing about the sordid history of FBI persecution of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was a target for harassment and threats from the FBI from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968, Robinson warns, “Presidents don’t win fights with the FBI. He’ll be sorry.” While the FBI and the CIA were involved in the cover-up of the assassinations of both President John F. Kennedy and King, Lyndon LaRouche has reported on the role of the British as the authors of key assassinations in U.S. history, including the murders of Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, Kennedy and King.

Which brings us back to the British role in Russiagate, and the prophetic insights of the LaRouches. In the Executive Intelligence Review published on January 20, 2017, the day of Trump’s inauguration, Helga Zepp LaRouche wrote, “What is spectacular about the operation against Trump, however, is that British intelligence and its American counterparts, which have operated for decades as spooks in the shadows, have now been forced to expose themselves openly.

The essentially dilettantish operation—conducted by Steele, the man in charge of exposing the corruption in FIFA and the principal MI6 agent in the affair of Litvinenko’s murder (whose death he and the Brits blame on Putin’s FSB operatives)—revealed the direct intervention of the British Empire, for which the term ‘globalization’ is only a synonym, into the internal affairs of the United States.”

In April of that year, as it was becoming clear that the anti-Trumpers intended to remove Trump through impeachment, the 25th Amendment, or even murder, Lyndon LaRouche stated that “No British institution has the right to meddle in American affairs. Obama is an example of this evil. Mankind has to learn to fight, to shut down things that are wrong. The British Empire is wrong…. People must have the guts to do what must be done. The time has come to crush this thing. Get this nation and other nations to agree to that.”

The revelations of the last weeks on the British role behind the regime change operation in the U.S. demonstrate that some people are finally showing “the guts to do what must be done.”
