PAPER: Former FBI Agent & Obama Cybersecurity Official On ‘Secret Mission’ To Verify Junk Steele Dossier

Published

on

A year after BuzzFeed published the now discredited Steele dossier, the news outlet that got its start churning out zany listicles, is on a ‘secret mission,’ to verify it. 

Zerohedge reports:

BuzzFeed has been paying a former top FBI and White House cybersecurity official to traverse the globe for the past six months on a secret mission to corroborate various claims in the Trump-Russia dossier assembled by ex-UK Spy Christopher Steele. Steele was commissioned by Fusion GPS, whose efforts were funded in large part by Hillary Clinton and the DNC – and then used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on a Trump campaign adviser and those he communicated with.

The probe, commissioned by Buzzfeed – which published the Steele dossier on January 11, 2017 –  is being conducted by Anthony Ferrante – formerly the FBI’s top official in charge of “cyber incident response” at the U.S. National Security Council under the Obama administration. Ferrante is leading the investigation from his new employer, D.C.-based business advisory firm, Forensic Technologies International (FTI) consulting reports Foreign Policy.

At FTI, Ferrante launched what’s now been a months-long stealth effort chasing down documents and conducting interviews on the ground in various countries around the world. His team directed BuzzFeed lawyers to subpoena specific data and testimony from dozens of agencies or companies across the country and assembled a cyber ops war room to analyze that data, according to sources familiar with the work.

BuzzFeed’s ‘secret mission,’ might be a difficult one to pull off since Steele told a UK court that the dossier contains “limited intelligence.”

Steele also admitted part of “his final December memo,” was unvetted.

“Such intelligence was not actively sought; it was merely received,” Steele added.

The dossier contains explosive, but unverified, opposition research that alleges intel ties between Russia and Trump and also claims Russia holds blackmail material over Trump.

In a letter released last Monday, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) say Steele penned a separate memo on then-candidate Donald Trump, based on information given to him by a Hillary Clinton contact and unnamed Obama State Department official.

According to Fox News’ Ed Henry, the memo suggests Steele misrepresented his findings to the FBI.

“The Grassley memo tonight now goes on to say that in fact the FBI then went back after learning that Christopher Steele misrepresented things and did talk to the media–the FBI never disclosed that to the FISA court and kept going back for renewals of the surveillance warrant and didn’t say to the court look things have changed, we no longer think he’s reliable–he lied to us and spoke to the media,” reported Henry.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referral of Steele states the former British intelligence agent misled the bureau about his connections to Yahoo News and Mother Jones, despite initially claiming he had no contact with the media.

AMAZING WISCONSIN TEEN Invents Classroom Door Stop to Prevent Killers from Entering Room – And Save Lives (VIDEO)

Published

By

A Wisconsin high school senior and Army recruit Justin Rivard invented a door stop that prevents killers from entering classrooms.

Justin created the “JustinKase” two years ago when he was just 15. The device does not allow a door to open even a crack which means students and staff will be saved during emergencies.

His own school already ordered 50 of the “JustinKase,” one for each room in the building, according to KARE.

Justin is entering the Army this year after his graduation.

FOX News reported:

One high schooler has come up with a device to prevent active shooters from getting inside classrooms – and to keep students safe.

He calls it the “JustinKase.” It’s a product made of steel that latches to a door frame to bar entry.

“Unlike other products, JustinKase does not allow a door to open even a crack which means students & staff can remain safe while emergency personnel race to the scene,” creator Justin Rivard, a student at Somerset High School in Wisconsin, explains on his website.

Rivard came up with the idea for the safety product, which he sells online for $95, two years ago – when he was just 15. He spent months refining it.

CNN Refused to Allow Florida Shooting Hero Colton Haab to Ask Questions at Town Hall That Didn’t Fit Their Narrative (VIDEO)

Published

Though Parkland student Colton Haab is being recognized nationally as a hero, CNN opted to leave him out of Wednesday’s town-hall event on Wednesday evening — seemingly because his perspective does not fit the narrative they have been peddling.

Haab is the brave 17-year-old member of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps who ushered 60 to 70 people to safety in an open JROTC room during the Parkland school shooting. The high school junior may have saved many lives by using the Kevlar sheets from the marksmanship program to try and protect his peers. His actions were so important that the US Military is currently considering awarding him with a JROTC Medal of Heroism.

Despite his heroism, the student told the Local 10 News that he was not allowed to ask his prepared questions at the CNN event.

“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions — and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab told a WPLG reporter.

Haab had been planning to speak on school safety and the possibility of using veterans as armed security guards.

When he found out that the questions would all be scripted, he opted out of going entirely.

Haab recently thanked the NRA for their contributions to the JROTC program and said that he believes the tragedy could have been prevented if Coach Aaron Feis had been armed.

Coach Feis was killed as he used his own body to shield students from the gunman’s bullets.

“If coach Feis had had his firearm in school that day, I believe that he could have most likely stopped the threat,” Haab told Fox News.
