Brian Mudd lists 30 Facts confirmed or revealed in the FISA Memo

On Friday’s Mark Levin show, Brian Mudd of WJNO fills in for Mark. From the episode summary: “There are four pages of stone cold reality in this Nunes memo. The Democrats say you can’t trust the contents of the memo but we haven’t heard anyone dispute any specific facts. There are two sides to every story and one side to every fact, and if the premise of everything isn’t right then everything built on it is false.”

Mudd lists “fact by fact” in the four pages, coming up with a “30 count indictment” pointing out facts that are NOT being disputed.

Here are some highlights:

  • Both the DOJ and the FBI petitioned the FISA court to begin to surveil a Trump campaign advisor (Carter Page) on October 21st 2016 – just two and a half weeks before the election.
  • The application had to be certified by the FBI’s Director or Deputy Director & The AG, Deputy AG, or Assistant AG to the NSA.
  • The initial warrant on Carter Page was issued & renewed three times (every 90 days) – which now takes you through the campaign, the election, the President-elect period and early days as President

Mudd details who signed warrants (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Dana Boenta, Rod Rosenstein) and that Christopher Steele was an FBI source.

Trey Gowdy says the The Steele Dossier was key in getting the warrant(s). Here are some statements, still undisputed:

  • Christopher Steele was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create it via Perkins Coie & Fusion GPS.
  • The purpose was to obtain “derogatory information” on Trump ties to Russia.
  • The funding of the dossier by the DNC & Clinton Campaign was never disclosed to the FISA court.
  • The DOJ and FBI officials who signed off on it knew that the DNC & Clinton Campaign paid for it to be created.
  • The FISA requests left the sourcing of the dossier out of the warrant request, despite knowing it was Fusion GPS.
  • The FBI authorized an additional payment to Christopher Steele for the dossier.
  • On September 23rd of 2016 Yahoo News ran a story linking Carter Page to Moscow that was used in the FISA requests as corroborating evidence.
  • Christopher Steele leaked the story to Yahoo News.
  • The FISA request assets that Steele wasn’t the source of the Yahoo story.
  • In a British court Christopher Steele cited that he was the source of the Yahoo News story.
  • Perkins Coie – the DNC & Clinton law firm used for the Dossier funding was aware of the Steele leak.
  • Perkins Coie held a meeting with Steele and Fusion GPS after the leak to discuss the matter.
  • Steele was suspended and fired after revealing he was an FBI source to Mother Jones on October 30th.

Mudd’s list is very comprehensive and, as of now, still undisputed.

  • After being fired by the FBI Steele maintained contact with the Justice Department – specifically Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and senior officials who were direct reports to Deputy AG’s Salley Yates and later Rod Rosenstein.
  • In September of 2016 Christopher Steele told Deputy AG Bruce Ohr “was desperate that Donald Trump not be elected”
  • Deputy AG Bruce Ohr’s wife was employed during this time by Fusion GPS to cultivate the dossier.
  • Deputy AG Bruce Ohr provided his wife’s research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign to the FBI.
  • Deputy AG Bruce Ohr’s wife’s role was never disclosed to the FISA court.
  • FBI Counter-intelligence Assistant Director Bill Priestap cited the dossier investigation as only being in its quote “infancy” at the time of the initial FISA warrant request.
  • FBI Director James Comey offered a summation of the dossier to President-Elect in January of 2017 Trump despite its lack of corroboration.
  • Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified in December of 2017 that the warrants wouldn’t have been issued without the Dossier.
