[TheHill] Multiple witnesses have told Congress that, a week before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, Britain’s top national security official sent a private communique to the incoming administration, addressing his country’s participation in the counterintelligence probe into the now-debunked Trump-Russia election collusion.
Most significantly, then-British national security adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant claimed in the memo, hand-delivered to incoming U.S. national security adviser Mike Flynn’s team, that the British government lacked confidence in the credibility of former MI6 spy Christopher Steele’s Russia collusion evidence, according to congressional investigators who interviewed witnesses familiar with the memo.
Oh? Then why did the British government say absolutely nothing publicly on the subject since then? Instead we see announcements that President Trump will be snubbed by Parliament and that former teevee actress who married a real, live prince.
Steele's Orbis Bus. Intel is a stone's throw from Vauxhaul and the British Intelligence Establishment. To believe they know nothing of Steele's activities is dreadfully naive. Our Rep. Devin Nunnes traveled to London last year in attempt to learn more about Steele. No one in the British Intelligence establishment would meet with him.
One example from the old TV series Mission Impossible with first Steven Hill and later Peter Graves as Mr. Phelps:
Good morning, Mr. Phelps. The man you are looking at is Walter Townsend, one of our high-ranking intelligence officers, whom we recently discovered is a top enemy agent. Upon learning this, we allowed Townsend access to false information which will cause his country severe embarrassment if believed and acted upon. Unfortunately, this man, George Simpson, Townsend's only contact in America, discovered the information was false and reported to his superiors that Townsend had defected. However, his superiors are aware Simpson is jealous of Townsend. The truth or falsity of this information is so important that they are sending their most brilliant intelligence officer. Stefan Miklos, to investigate. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to make Stefan believe Townsend's information. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim. 1967-1973.
The govmint must have used this series for training. Reality imitates art.
The Brits get most of their information about us from the NYTimes and Washington Post and the networks and perhaps CIA contacts, and from them believed that the walls were closing in on Trump and helping him would be dangerous to them from a vindictive Ms. Clinton.
Note that Nunes revealed that the information about Papadopoulos from the Australian guy came to the FBI unofficially and not through the standard channels.
Parliament hates to admit that it has been duped by idiots. It already looks like a crowd of losers from its own Brexit performance.

That's OK; Pelosi's statement proves the point, unless it was doctored, too:
Pelosi's statements to KQED:
“We have said all along, ‘Poor Facebook, they were unwittingly exploited by the Russians.’ I think wittingly, because right now they are putting up something that they know is false. I think it’s wrong,” she said, according to a transcript of the conversation provided by Pelosi’s office. “They’re lying to the public. . . . I think they have proven — by not taking down something they know is false — that they were willing enablers of the Russian interference in our election."
[MAIL] Sixteen former and current female FBI recruits and analysts have sued the bureau alleging gender discrimination and sexual harassment in a class action lawsuit that includes emails from James Comey. Misdeeds by St. James? Say it ain't so!
The women filed their lawsuit in federal court on Wednesday night. Of the 16 plaintiffs, seven still work at the bureau. Five have agreed to be named but 11 have not.
Most say they were unfairly stopped from graduating to become Special Agents, often just days before they were due to graduate. They complain that they were penalized for making mistakes that their male counterparts got away with.
One woman, a Native American with a disability, says she was sexually harassed and ridiculed for her disability.
Some allege they were badgered for sex by male recruits at Quantico while completing their agent training and even allege that they had to go back to their rooms with an escort at night because they were often followed.
Others say they were unfairly penalized for behavior their male colleagues got away with and some allege they were discharged by the academy and stopped from going into the field without sufficient explanation within a week of graduation.
On Thursday morning, 10 of the women appeared on NBC's Today show to discuss the case.
In modern society speak, mild autism, and common illnesses like type 1 diabetes or mental health issues, even if fully controlled, are legally considered disabilities. She could very well have had every right to be there. And legally, she would have been required to speak to her superiors about it if it would require any kind of awareness on their part at all (needing a prescription in a controlled environment for example). It's not the military. They're just federal police. They don't need to be able to go on campaign.
According to the nonsense of current federal law, I am "disabled". I take a couple pills a day and have an appointment with a doctor every 3-6 months. Disability doesn't mean what it used to. It has been changed by PC speak to mean nearly anything. Without knowing more, you really can't speak to how unworthy the candidate was of being there.
Also, don't discount the timing on this one. Being released now, right as the FBI's upper echelons are about to starting eating each other anyways during the Barr investigation? Not a coincidence. This could easily be used to cut down innumerable powerful people from all sorts of factions from within the FBI. And like most feminist "Me Too" lawsuits and "fact finding" missions, I expect it to find a lot of the stuff it is claiming to be real... but being done by the people who have been assisting the Democrats in tearing down the Trump presidency. Interested to see how it turns out.
[PJ] When I saw a Facebook post announcing that Hillary Clinton will be speaking at a cybersecurity conference, I burst out laughing. I had the immediate desire to share it with my closest friends, and you will, too. This news is worthy of The Onion or The Babylon Bee.
On Thursday, the cybersecurity company FireEye announced one of its keynote speakers will be none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former secretary of State infamous for keeping classified information on her home-brew email server.
This is no small snafu. FireEye is a publicly-traded company founded in 2004. FireEye "has been called in to investigate high-profile attacks against Target, JP Morgan Chase, Sony Pictures, Anthem and others." According to Deloitte, FireEye is the fastest-growing cybersecurity firm.
In a shameless push to get butts in seats, this very prominent cybersecurity firm is hosting Hillary Clinton. When the company announced this on Facebook, at least 1,365 people reacted with a laugh.

Fire Eye, a company that had almost failed in 2013, suddenly had a turn around when contracted by Homeland Security in 2015. Since then its share prices have increased in direct relation to the number of agency contracts. Original founder Ashar Aziz has long left the company.
It probably isn't surprising that Fire Eye is being sued by its investors. The company was hit by multiple class action lawsuits in 2014 after its secondary offering triggered a steep sell-off. The plaintiffs also allege that Fire Eye execs made misleading claims about the effectiveness of its threat prevention technologies.
In Jan this year, Fire Eye claimed that Iran was attacking US security and bank servers.
