Judicial Watch Sues on behalf of Pentagon Official Who Blew the Whistle on Spygate Figure and Clinton Crony

John Brennan, the disgraced former CIA director, has made security clearances an issue, so let’s go with that. Let’s have a look at how Deep State officials stripped a security clearance from someone for raising questions about government corruption.

We just filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit on behalf of former Pentagon analyst and White House National Security Council (NSC) senior director Adam S. Lovinger, whose security clearance was pulled after he raised concerns regarding lucrative government contracts awarded to Stefan Halper ( Adam S. Lovinger v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:18-cv-01914)). Halper has subsequently been identified as being used an informant used by the Obama administration against President Trump’s campaign.

Mr. Lovinger also raised questions about Long Term Strategy Group, a consulting firm owned by Chelsea Clinton’s friend Jacqueline Newmyer Deal.

The Washington Times reported on the contracts in question: “According to USASpending.gov, Mr. Halper was paid $411,000 by Washington Headquarters Services on Sept. 26, 2016, for a contract that ran until this March.” Also, “a string of contracts totaling $11 million [was granted] to D.C. consulting firm Long Term Strategy Group. It is headed by Jacqueline Newmyer Deal, a self-described ‘best friend’ of Chelsea Clinton.”

Lovinger filed his complaint in the fall of 2016. In May 2017, Lovinger’s security clearance was initially suspended by Barbara Westgate, the Director of Washington Headquarters Services and an Obama appointee. A few months later, the Pentagon’s Consolidated Adjudications Facility (CAF) “issued an unfavorable clearance determination and Mr. Lovinger’s clearance was revoked,” a Defense Department spokesman informed The Washington Times . The CAF is part of the Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) and reports directly to Westgate.

In September 2017, Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint against the CAF, which determines security clearance eligibility of non-intelligence personnel, Westgate and James H. Baker , the DOD’s Director of Net Assessment, who recommended the contract awards to Halper and Long Term Strategy Group.

In December 2017, Lovinger filed a Privacy Act request seeking:

Any and all emails or similar electronic messaging transmissions referencing the word “Lovinger;” whether in the title or body of said communications(s); between May 1, 2017 and present; to, from, or copied to the following individuals:

  1. Mr. Edward Fish, Director DoD CAF

  2. Mr. Daniel Purtill, Deputy Director DoD CAF

  3. Mr. Ronald Freels, Adjudications Directorate Chief.

In March 2018, the DOD responded, treating his request as both a Privacy Act and a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request and admitting it found 75 pages of responsive documents but was withholding them all in their entirety. Lovinger was informed that Fish, against whom the whistleblower complaint had been filed, had also been the official who determined the documents should be withheld.

In April 2018, Lovinger appealed the DOD’s determination. Over four months later, the appeal has not been addressed. Washington Headquarters Services has refused repeated requests to recuse itself from further involvement in this case despite an apparent conflict of interest. Under existing DOD policy, WHS officials reporting to Westgate will be the final arbiter of Lovinger’s case, which cannot be appealed to the courts.

Also, the DOD has yet to comply with Lovinger’s Privacy Act Request.

Before his work on the NSC, Lovinger was a strategic affairs analyst in the Office of Net Assessment at the Pentagon, where he specialized in issues related to U.S.-India relations, the Persian Gulf, and sub-Saharan Africa. He also is an attorney and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service and McCort School of Public Policy.

Lovinger was targeted because he blew the whistle on Stefan Halper and a Clinton crony getting suspicious Defense contracts. It is disturbing that the Defense Department may now be implicated in Spygate targeting of President Trump.

THIS WE KNOW—Fusion GPS, Hillary’s apparat, the DNC, Brennan, and Obama officials—-
were laser-focused on destroying Donald Trump. The FBI got involved using very suspect methodologies.

One crucial question is how early this all happened?.........

ITEM——Hillary Clinton ran in the 2008 and 2016 democratic primaries——and in the 2016 general election.

ITEM——S/C Mueller “uncovered” that the “Russian collusion scheme” apparently “materialized sometime in 2014.

Now, here’s the $64,000 question not addressed....Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

Were Obama’s CIA-co-ordinated PDB’s falsified?
Probably-—Brennan knew the Halfrican was too stupid to catch on.

Brennan got outed as calculatedly working the phony “pee dossier” into Obama’s PDB.

Dates are important b/c Snowden’s’ revelations indicate government spying apparatus began capturing all electronic data on Americans in 2001.

The Obama police state had a lot of help-—our govt mastered the capture of all keystrokes, telephone calls and digital traffic by 2005.

This we know:
<><> (A) traffic travels through FBI computers, and,
<><> (B) the CIA keeps constant tabs on Russian spies in Russia....... and elsewhere.

Again. Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

John Brennan Revoked the Security Clearances of Benghazi Heroes
Independent Sentinel ^ | 8/17/18 | S. Noble
FR Posted on 8/21/2018, 4:41:07 AM by Libloather

**SNIP** Paronto said he never shared intel but his security clearance was removed by Brennan. Brennan never told him why. He blasted Brennan for the way the heroes of Benghazi were treated upon return. “We come back from being on the ground to be treated as a second-class citizen. You come back and you’re called a liar,” Paronto told Fox News. “Brennan came in and there was no talk of ‘hey, good job guys,’ not that you look for it, but instead, it was ‘don’t say anything guys, we don’t want the truth to get out.’”He didn’t let up on Twitter. (Excerpt) Read more at independentsentinel.com ...

===========================================

NOTE: Paronto is a former Special Forces officer, a surviving member of a six-man security team who was given “stand down” orders from Hussein / Hillary / Brennan following the distress calls concerning a planned Jihad attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. General Carter Ham received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help as the planned attack was taking place - immediately he said that he had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready... General Ham, was then given the order to Stand Down during the attack; which he protested... Therefore, he was relieved of Command of AFRICOM and physically removed from his TOC, Tactical Operations Center by Cankles Deep State pals. Also relieved was the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette during its deployment.

=================================================

POINTS TO PONDER---Some say Amb Stevens would be alive today if he had just “donated” $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation, Hillary would have been all-ears---she would have answered one of his many urgent phone calls about Benghazi’s lax “security” All of this was confirmed in Hillary’s “missing” e-Mails that she savagely smashed and bleached-bit.

========================================

We need to determine whether Amb Stevens ever received a solicitation letter from the Clinton Foundation.....
AND whether other US Ambassadors were asked to donate.

. Lovinger was informed that Fish, against whom the whistleblower complaint had been filed, had also been the official who determined the documents should be withheld.

This screams of illegality and corruption. Will we continue down this path to being a Stalinist state?
