WRITTEN BY DR MICHAEL SALLA SEPTEMBER 22, 2018
Donald Trump released a two-part tweet on Friday, September 21, which confirmed that he has been discussing with key US allies the release of unredacted versions of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court application filed in June 2017 to renew a permit for the US intelligence community to spy on individuals associated with the Trump administration and his 2016 Presidential campaign. The tweet followed Q posts from September 19 which described panic among key US allies related to the release of the unredacted FISA application.
Trump’s admission follows his Presidential Directive issued on September 17 instructing the Justice Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to declassify and release approximately 20 pages of the FISA Court application without redactions. Previously, the application was released in a heavily redacted form ostensibly to protect national security.
However, it quickly emerged that the redactions had nothing to do with national security. They were instead intended to save Deep State officials and key US allies from being exposed and embarrassed over the use of the Steele dossier as a justification to spy on Trump’s campaign. Fox News analyst Greg Jarrett writes:
In July, a substantial portion of the wiretap warrant applications presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was declassified. It turns out that no vital sources or methods were revealed in a way that jeopardized either national security or the FBI’s secret investigative techniques. Instead, we learned that much of the application to spy on a Trump campaign associate, Carter Page, was based on an unverified “dossier” that was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and composed by a British spy, Christopher Steele, who was fired by the FBI for lying.
The concerns of Britain and Australia, in particular, is that the unredacted version will show how they and other key US allies were involved in the development and distribution of the unverified dossier through the Five Eyes agreement between the US, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Q has previously described how the Five Eyes agreement provided a mechanism for Deep State officials from the US, Britain, Australia and other Five Eyes nations to collude in fabricating the Steele dossier as an “insurance policy” in case Trump won the election.
