Prior to the battle of Midway, the U.S. suspected the Japanese Navy had picked Midway as their next target. But the problem was the target was identified only by a code name. The decision was made to send a public unencrypted broadcast from Midway saying they have problems with their water system. The Japanese fell for it hook, line and sinker. They sent an encrypted message to Yamato which proved that Midway was the target. The United States set up an ambush at Midway and that battle literally changed the war.
Both Attorney General Jeff Session and FBI Director Wray have said there are ongoing investigations of the FBI including investigation of leaks. They also said this investigation is not being conducted by the DOJ and the FBI. We know that there is an investigation by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) but I believe that someone else is conducting a secret and very effective investigation.
Last summer there were numerous stories published in the main stream media that turned out to be false. This is exactly what one would expect to happen if there was a truly independent leak investigation. Fake or even real classified documents would be distributed through normal channels. A slightly different version of the same document would be given to each person. This would make it easy to identify the primary source of any leak. This would be a classic spy vs spy operation. In the last couple of weeks, this has rapidly escalated.
Private e-mails sent and received by members of the Mueller investigation using the FBI server have been disclosed. Obviously these people thought those e-mails were secure. They were, but someone legally gained access to those e-mails and no one in the FBI even knew it happened.
There was a report claiming Michael Flynn would testify that Trump ordered him to contact Russia during the election. Oops. It was after the election, when it was Flynn’s job to do that.
There was a report that Mueller issued subpoenas for Trump’s Deutsche Bank records. The White House easily provided documents proving this was not true.
There was a report that Donald Trump Jr. had received an e-mail from WikiLeaks on September 4, 2016. The real e-mail was dated September 14, 2016, after the DNC e-mails had been released to the public.
All three of these incidents involve highly classified information given only to a handful of people. It looks like someone was deliberately given false information, not provided to anyone else. This was information too tempting to ignore. By leaking this to the press, this person may have self-incriminated.
I believe this is about to explode. Several things provide hints that this investigation is nearly complete. Devin Nunes, Chairman of the Intelligence committee, has resurfaced. On December 7, 2017 Nunes was fully exonerated by the ethics committee. Nunes is one of the few people who could have gained access to the FBI server, legally, without telling anyone. This caused me to research Nunes with regard to his personal timeline.
On March 21st, 2017, Nunes received a private phone call. He sent his staff home, switched cars and went to the White House. There he met with an informant who showed him highly classified documents in a secure location. Nunes gave a press conference reporting this without bothering to inform Democrats on the Intelligence Committee. The next day he personally briefed President Donald Trump and then gave another press conference. Shortly after this left wing groups filed a complaint with the ethics committee. Nunes publicly said this was a sham designed to block him from investigating. His exoneration on December 7, 2017 is full vindication of Nunes.
It would be really interesting to know what information was provided to Nunes on March 21, 2017. We only know what he chose to tell us. Even Nunes’ staff was not in that meeting. We only know that he considered this so important that he requested a personal meeting with President Donald Trump.
One of the democrats on the Intelligence Committee said it looked like Nunes was running his own intelligence operation. In retrospect, that may be right. All we know is that things were being investigated and the Mueller investigation has been rocked to its core. We know that the main stream media has issued several reports, based on “reliable sources” that have turned out to be totally inaccurate. The main stream media has been humiliated. Trump poured salt on the wound by hammering them for fake news. What people failed to understand is that the people leaking those stories may have believed them to be true. If someone like Nunes was running an undercover sting operation, that is exactly what would happen.
This appears to be happening at the speed of light. It’s a beautiful thing.
