The Strzok/Carter Page/FBI/ Trump timeline



As you know, I’ve been wondering about whether the Russia collusion theory was ever a reality or a construct of FBI. I put together a timeline of events, this time including Carter Page and some pivotal events with which you are familiar. Have a look at how it went down.

2013: Carter Page is working for the FBI to help catch spies

June 2015: Trump announces candidacy

Clinton campaign puts down payment on the false dossier

April 2016: Perkins Coie, using money from the Clinton campaign and DNC, hires Fusion GPS. Marc Elias, a Perkins Coie partner and general counsel for both the campaign and DNC, would serve as the bagman.

That month, Federal Election Commission records show that the Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie a total of $150,000 for legal services. The DNC paid the firm around $107,000. It is unclear how much of that went to Fusion GPS. Both the campaign and DNC would pay Perkins Coie hundreds of thousands more dollars throughout the campaign.

April 2016: Papadopoulos met with Joseph Mifsud

May 2016: Comey decides Clinton is innocent.

May 26, 2016: Trump secures nomination

June 2016: Australia informs US that Papadopoulos has information about Clinton emails when leaked Podesta emails appear online.

The scramble for the emails begins

June 2016: Fusion GPS hires former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his London-based firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia. Steele discloses this in court filings earlier this year as part of a lawsuit he faces over the dossier. Steele said he worked for Fusion GPS from June through November.

June 20, 2016: Steele writes first memo of the dossier. It alleges that Trump used prostitutes during a visit to Moscow in 2013 and that the Kremlin was blackmailing him with the evidence. The memo also alleges that the Trump campaign was engaged in a well-orchestrated collusion campaign with Russian operatives.

July 5, 2016: With Strzok’s input, Comey lets Clinton off the hook.

July 19, 2016: Trump officially becomes GOP nominee

July, 2016: Carter Page travels to Russia.

“Back in June 2016, I mentioned in passing that I happened to be planning to give a speech at a university in Moscow,” Page told CNN. “Completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I’ve done dozens of times throughout my life.”

Very curiously, he would later testify without a lawyer.

Page’s decision to appear before the committee without a lawyer surprised members, including Conaway. Castro said Page’s decision to testify without a lawyer was “a first” for the committee. “You know, as an attorney myself, I certainly would think that somebody would want to have a lawyer with them, but there’s also a high cost financially for somebody to be able to afford a lawyer.”

July 2016: Chatter began appearing on social media referring to damning information about Trump’s ties to Russia. Republican strategist Rick Wilson told The New York Times back in January, after the dossier was published, that he was first asked about the document by a reporter in July.

(This is when Steele begins leaking the story to the media)

Late July 2016: FBI opens investigation into Trump-Russia– signed off by Peter Strzok.

I think this started as an investigation into who might have the Clinton emails but then it morphed into the collusion accusation.

Summer 2016: FBI seeks FISA warrant for “four individuals” and is refused

The Russian collusion scheme is born

August 15, 2016: Strzok tells Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office” — an apparent reference to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe — “that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40 . . . . ”

It is suggested that the Russia probe was the insurance policy.

September 2, 2016: Page to Strzok text: “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.”

Now Strzok has a hook- in Page.

October, 2016: FISA warrant granted to surveil Carter Page. Comey uses dossier for securing the warrant.

November 9, 2016: Trump wins Presidential election

November 14, 2016: Page to Strzok: “God, being here makes me angry. Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”

November 17, 2016: NSA Director Mike Rogers pays Pres-elect Trump a visit ( most likely to warn Trump his place was being spied on).

November 18, 2016: The next day Trump moves his transition headquarters to New Jersey

Jan. 6, 2017: Comey tells Trump the dossier is “salacious and unverified”. Comey does not inform Trump that he (Comey) used the dossier to secure FISA warrant.

January 10, 2017: Buzzfeed publishes the dossier

January 12, 2017: Barack Obama, who “wanted to know everything”, relaxes privacy rules to allow NSA to “let the NSA share more of its unfiltered intelligence with its fellow agencies—including those with a domestic law enforcement agenda.”

You might call that “the other insurance policy.”

The obama DOJ uses the dossier four times to spy on Trump

On March 17, 2017, the Chairman and Ranking Member were provided copies of the two relevant FISA applications, which requested authority to conduct surveillance on Carter Page. Both relied heavily on Mr. Steele’s dossier claims, and both applications were granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). In December of 2017, the Chairman, Ranking Member and Subcommittee Chairman Graham were allowed to review a total of four FISA applications relying on the dossier to seek surveillance of Mr. Carter Page, as well as numerous other documents relating to Mr. Steele.

The dossier was never corroborated. There are too many coincidences. The dossier was so pathetic, so thinly sourced that no semi-reputable news outlet would publish it, but somehow it was good enough for the FBI to secure four FISA applications.

Trump absolutely was framed.

Obviously the left has taken what Hillary started as a dirt mining operation (I guess she never doubted Trump’s birth records, as she did Obama’s), which failed, and re-purposed it to represent a national security threat and spy on Trump and his team AND try and prove their “collusion” excuse they would like to use to remove Trump from office.

Yet we have learned that Hillary contracted for the dossier, then provided some of the information she wanted in the dossier, then Steele provided the dossier to the FBI while simultaneously (and illegally) provided the story to media outlets from whom the FBI regarded as further verification of the dossier. Pretty sloppy. But, it was never imagined Trump would win the election and that any of this would ever see the light of day.

Carter Page was a spy in the Trump camp.
He set Trump up by going to Russia (once again) after his many previous trips there.
In 1992-1993 he was on the CLINTON TRANSITION TEAM!
He jumped thru every necessary hoop to insure a FISA warrant was issued so the Trump camp could be spied on.

He’s never been charged or arraigned, tried or convicted of anything, so why spy on him?
