    The White House ^ | January 9, 2018 | President Donald J. Trump
    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 3001 et seq.), as amended, I hereby order as follows: Section 1. Requirement for Procedures. (a) The Director of National Intelligence shall, within 30 days of the date of this memorandum, issue and release publicly a policy requiring that each element of the Intelligence Community (IC) develop and maintain procedures for responding to requests from Federal, State, local, tribal, or territorial government officials for non-public identity information concerning known unconsenting United...

    President Donald Trump ordered late Tuesday that the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats put in place procedures for intelligence and law enforcement officials requesting the unmasking of American citizens and the dissemination of those names in foreign intelligence reports, according to a White House memorandum obtained by this reporter. Trump has given the DNI 30 days to “issue and release publicly a policy requiring that each element of the Intelligence Community (IC) develop and maintain procedures for responding to requests from Federal, State, local, tribal, or territorial government officials for non-public identity information concerning known unconsenting United States persons...
  • Former CIA chief John Brennan says President Trump being played for a fool by Putin [barf]

    Former CIA chief John Brennan thinks Donald Trump is being easily fooled by Vladimir Putin. Brennan and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, were responding to Trump’s remarks in Asia where he said he believed Putin when the Russian leader stated he had not tried to interfere in the 2016 election in the US. […] Brennan utterly dismissed Trump’s assessment. “I don’t know why the ambiguity about this,” Brennan said. “Putin is committed to undermining our system, our democracy and our whole process. And to try paint it in any other way is, I think, astounding, and, in fact,...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday that "fake" is not "an accurate characterization for the entirety" of the Steele dossier, and "what has not been corroborated has yet to be determined." "When we did our Intelligence Committee assessment, we were aware that the -- there had been research done and that some Republican candidates as a matter of fact had contracted through I think Fusion GPS to obtain what it later became much known as a dossier," Clapper told CNN. "That work, as I understand, was handed off later to the DNC and the Clinton campaign. So...

    It's not called "blind hatred" for nothing. A while back I wrote that democrats were opening Pandora's box.  It is now open and they're really, really not going to like what's coming. Last week, we learned that Susan Rice lied through her teeth: On the same day, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was interviewed by PBS’s Judy Woodruff and asked to respond to Nunes’ accusation that she had unmasked those Trump officials in the waning days of the Obama administration. Here is the exchange: Woodruff: We’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in...

    The American Conservative ^ | Nov. 11, 2012 | Philip Giraldi
    It now seems clear what occurred to bring down CIA Director David Petraeus: some months ago his paramour Paula Broadwell sent threatening emails to another woman warning her to keep away from Petraeus, seemingly unaware that computers and emails have signatures that can be identified by investigators. The woman, identified by the Associated Press as Jill Kelley, became alarmed over being threatened and notified the FBI, which got into the emails to discover that there was an affair in progress, leading to an investigation of Petraeus to determine if any classifed information had been leaked. Broadwell was subsequently interviewed by...

    President Trump’s speech in Phoenix brought out the usual cast of misfits and miscreants. And no, I’m not just referring to the “Antifa” anarchists who were, for the most part, denied their typical practice of wielding clubs, hurling feces, throwing rocks, setting vehicles ablaze and destroying buildings. I’m talking about chronic Trump critics like James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence. Spouting off on CNN immediately after the speech, Clapper said he questioned the president’s “fitness to be in this office." Clapper seems to be making a career out of trashing Trump. He’s like a guy who can’t resist...

    CNN contributor James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, said after watching President Trump's Tuesday night rally in Phoenix he questions his fitness for office. Clapper said Trump seems to be "looking for a way out" of the presidency. "I really question his ability, his fitness to be in this office and I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it," Clapper said. "Maybe he is looking for a way out."

    A big story broke in the last 24 hours. This story it has far greater implications than anything else the left-wing pundits are talking about, but you won’t hear about it from the mainstream media. It goes straight to the question of whether Barack Obama weaponized America’s intelligence agencies against Congress and perhaps even the Supreme Court. The story revolves around the Obama administration’s monitoring of conversations by his political opponents combined with strategic “unmasking” of individuals and leaking of those conversations to damage his political opposition. Just to refresh your memory, “unmasking” is Washington jargon that refers to the...
  • James Clapper eased rules on 'unmasking' procedures in 2013: Report (unmasking congress & staff)

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 31 2017 | Todd Shepherd
    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper revised rules in 2013 in a way that made it easier to "unmask" the names of lawmakers or congressional staffers who are incidentally caught in foreign surveillance. The new procedures implemented by Clapper uprooted the previous set of rules that had been in use for just over two decades, according to a report from The Hill. The report relied in part on a newly released memo by the ODNI created in 2013 that said the lawmakers or staffers' names could be unmasked if an intelligence agency under the executive branch thought that "the...

    The New York Times issued a correction Thursday on an article that incorrectly claimed all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed that “Russia orchestrated the attacks, and did it to help get [Trump] elected.” The original article, published June 25, covered certain reactions that President Donald Trump gave in response to Russian cyber attacks and interactions with the 2016 presidential election. TheNYT’s correction notes that: “The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved...

    According to NBC, the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats will go back before the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow to answer questions in a closed session. This new hearing comes after Coats testified before the same committee in an open session last week but refused to discuss direct conversations with the President in a public session. Of course, just like with Comey’s ‘private session’, somehow we suspect that if anything material is divulged in tomorrow’s ‘private session’ with Coats it will be promptly leaked to the media. As we pointed out last week, Intel Committee Vice Chair Mark Warner didn’t...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told an audience in Australia Wednesday that in his view, the Russia scandal facing the Trump administration is far worse than the Watergate scandal that President Nixon faced. "I think [if] you compare the two, that Watergate pales really in my view compared to what we're confronting now," Clapper said. According to a transcript of his remarks, Clapper said he called then-President-elect Trump when Trump dismissed the intelligence community's assessment that Russia tried to meddle in the 2016 election. Clapper said Trump called intelligence officials "Nazis" in an apparent attempt to attack anyone...

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - A former U.S. intelligence official said Wednesday the Watergate scandal that brought down a president "pales" in comparison with allegations that President Donald Trump's election campaign colluded with Russians. James Clapper, director of national intelligence until Trump took office in January, told Australia's National Press Club the cover-up of a 1972 burglary at the Democratic Party national headquarters in the Watergate complex in Washington that ended Richard Nixon's presidency "was a scary time." But the allegations under multiple investigations of Russian meddling in last year's presidential election were more concerning, he said. "I think (if) you...

    FBI Director James Comey attempted to go public as early as the summer of 2016 with information on Russia’s campaign to influence the U.S. presidential election, but Obama administration officials blocked him from doing so, two sources with knowledge of the matter tell Newsweek. Well before the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence accused the Russian government of tampering with the U.S. election in an October 7 statement, Comey pitched the idea of writing an op-ed about the Russian campaign during a meeting in the White House’s situation room in June or July....

    In his final year in office Mr. Obama’s administration significantly expanded the availability of National Security Agency (NSA) intercepts of American citizens. His order spread unredacted intelligence reports across many government entities, many without a need to know, to have, or share either before or after the 2016 presidential election. The reports put in full view the names of American citizens. This may validate Maxine Waters’ claim of Obama’s secret database in 2013. Data released this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) provided evidence of NSA’s collection of info on American Citizens, maintained in a...

    Representative Elise M. Stefanik is a young, freshman republican congresswoman from the Albany New York area. And using a probative questioning timeline, she single-handily pulled the mask from FBI Director James Comey, yet no-one seemed to notice. Obviously Ms. Stefanik has not been in the swamp long enough to lose her common sense. In the segment of the questioning below Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has...
