1. I found a very interesting bit of information in Footnote 218! It may indicate a direct lead to #Spygate2. It seems Peter Strzok lied to the OIG about allowing a "non-FBI" family member to access his private email where he was doing unauthorized FBI business.
2. Strzok was emailing FBI business to his personal email account. Including information under seal by a federal courts & grand jury information. The OIG notified both DOJ prosecutors about these offenses.
3. When asked about using private email, Strzok said a variety of things that are not true. I’ll break some of this down, but he argued that any use of personal devices/accounts was to get around tech problems with FBI systems. From P. 427 of OIG report.
4. So lets start with his claim that he only used personal email when it wasn’t possible to use FBI systems or there were problems with FBI systems. P. 427
5. Then Strzok argued that it was acceptable to use personal email when “it is not practical or possible” to use your FBI device. But we can find many examples where this was not true of his use. P. 427-8 #OIGReport
6. Obviously the OIG staff knew of these texts about Imsg, draft emails, & emails too. I’ll just say his answers lack candor. #LackingCandor P. 429 We have texts where Page/Strzok specifically state something is work related, too sensitive for text, & then switch to discuss work.
7. Page’s story was a little different. She claimed the technical limitations issue blaming it mostly on autocorrect. Though she tried to argue switching to other means was “mostly personal use”. This is repeatedly contradicted by their texts. #PeterStrzok #LisaPage p. 429
8. The section concludes with this. Strzok’s personal use & his statements about it were referred to the FBI INSD/OPR. Since his statements lack candor, it is central to the investigation. Seems likely they are hinting that Page left the department because of her referrals.
9. Peter Strzok refused to provide access to the OIG to his private emails account where he was conducting FBI work. Work that is under seal by one court & work covered by grand jury secrecy rules & regulations. Strzok did search his own email for work emails & said none existed.
10. Then it gets interesting, with two sensitive leaks reported to at least 2 prosecutors, it is entirely likely that they then subpoenaed his email or got a warrant. We can confirm this with Footnote 218, where they note Strzok allowed a "non-FBI family member" to access it.
11. Because Strzok said no one else accessed it, & the #OIGReport shows evidence of this access (& perjury). Evidence that could only have been gathered through a warrant or other legal process to identify the access & verify who it was. So who was this "non-FBI family member"?
12. So who was Strzok's "non-FBI family member" who was accessing his private email where he & Page were privately communicating? Allegedly communicating about their affair but not work. Well, it was probably Strzok's wife, but I doubt she was given access to read private emails.
13. Note the @JusticeOIG did not say non-government family member, so they imply that the family member worked for another agency. As others have noted in October of 2016, Melissa Hodge Strzok was promoted to Deputy Director of the Enforcement Division at the SEC.
14. If you are not aware of the second #Spygate case Strzok's wife (or her division) played a role in an almost identical attempt by people illegally accessing NSA intercepts, generating news stories, & then FBI Counterintelligence starting an investigation into @JaredKushner
15. You can find those details here: But it is very interesting that @FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok felt hiding his wife's involvement was important enough to lie to the OIG about it. Then her team was involved w/ an FBI CI invgtn. into the WH
16. That little footnote shows that while the @JusticeOIG did not have legal cause to look at those emails without Strzok's consent. But one of the prosecutors did establish probable cause & prove he was lacking candor. So soon we will learn what his wife's involvement was.

Seems the New Yorker had a panel about Trump Inc. this weekend, including Felix Sater. At one time he was the Democrats prime suspect in Russian collusion, until they realized he was an undercover asset. He worked for FBI, DIA, & CIA! One of Trump's many employee FBI assets.
Buzzfeed did a pretty good article on Sater about 6 months ago. The links in that article are even more valuable as they go to specific operations & documents that show Sater's activity. Like spying on North Korea's nuclear supply chain. buzzfeednews.com/article/anthon…
And that is just the operations the DOJ admits to! All while working for Trump to line up mobsters & Russian spies who kept getting indicted!

Not what I was hoping for but it looks like some more interesting breadcrumbs. More GRU hacking incidents & targets, many related to Olympic doping test facilities & the chemical weapons labs testing samples from UK & Syria. justice.gov/opa/documents-…
Of biggest interest to me is the hacking of Westinghouse Electric, nuclear fuel supplier to Ukraine & other countries. The prosecutors were unwilling to discuss anything not spelled out in the indictment, which means not much. Two main priorities seem likely for the Russians.
Westinghouse was expanding Ukrainian nuclear power capacity. So 1 priority could have been to keep Ukraine dependent on Russian oil & natural gas to allow the Russians to exert leverage over them. So disrupting that relationship or operation may have been a Russian focus.

Josoph Mifsud's lawyer has written a cease & desist letter to @ScottMStedman. In it, Stephan Roh makes a couple of interesting claims. Starting with denying his role as a 'Russian agent' & making clear intent to sue for that false & defamatory allegation. #Spygate
@ScottMStedman Even more interesting is his claim that Joseph Mifsud is a Western intelligence agent & was directed by that agency (believed to be MI6) to introduce @GeorgePapa19 to a Russian. He has also been directed to remain quiet about the incident at this time!
@ScottMStedman @GeorgePapa19 Stedman has a thread about it but believes it is another Russian plot by Stephan Roh. He has no clue, the plot was to frame Pdop for contacts w/ Western intel agents pretending to be Russian agents. Agents were outed by Dems when they found no Russians.

How blind can folks be, this is all you need to know! Rosenstein said all this to McCabe, knowing that someone was already secretly recording the President in the WH. RR was setting up McCabe, & McCabe took the bait writing the memos as blackmail material. cnbc.com/2018/09/21/ros…
Remember what I've said the purpose of the slow roll out is? To get the conspirators on the record under oath telling their lies, reveal a little evidence & force them to change their stories. It then requires them to produce evidence (like McCabe's memos) to back their new lies.
Each round of sunlight, causes another alibi to be destroyed. And so far, the conspirators have been forced to reveal new incriminating evidence first to try & get their spin out first. They can't wait for the declassifications, the unredactions, they have to confess & spin.

ABC claiming the FBI started a Counterintelligence Investigation of @carterwpage in January 2016, also claiming that is when he joined the Trump Campaign. Both conflict with past information. They don't mention that Page provided the bugs to catch the Russian spies.
@carterwpage Steele, on the payroll of Putin's Oligarch Oleg Deripaska, contacted Bruce Ohr, who was providing tips on US DOJ actions against reputed Mobster Oleg Deripaska to Steele. Winer was for many years a FARA registered agent for Russian corporate interests.

Seems everyone in the press knew Peter Strzok was removed from the SC team by 8/16/17.
Seems the @NYT knew that Greg Craig was a focus of the Manafort investigation on 9/7/17. Interesting.
Now this is an interesting string of rumors the press heard. That an agent quit the SC team & filed an affidavit against Andrew Weissman for leaking grand jury info to AP! That meeting, if there was only one, was before the Special Counsel was appointed.
