U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Jensen has struck again. Like a silent assassin, you can forget he’s out there until he suddenly hands off a fresh batch of newly declassified documents to Michael Flynn’s lead defense lawyer, Sidney Powell.

Several times now, Jensen has made documentary disclosures from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to the Flynn defense team as part of his investigation into how the FBI and the Mueller special counsel office handled their investigation of Flynn, and each time he has done so, it's become increasingly apparent the criminal case against the retired three-star general was built based upon fraud, lies, and omissions.

The more documents Jensen has discovered, declassified, and disclosed, the more corrupt the FBI Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller special counsel teams end up looking.

All the exculpatory documents in the Flynn false statement case were classified to keep them out of the hands of his lawyers.

Not until Attorney General William Barr appointed Jensen to investigate the multiple strange irregularities surrounding the Flynn case did the truth emerge. The documents Jensen found, gave to Powell, and unsealed in court directly led to the DOJ filing to dismiss the case.

The long-hidden and previously classified documents demonstrated that Flynn had been the target of a criminal conspiracy to first get him fired as Trump’s national security adviser, and then to prosecute him for a nonexistent crime.

A Stunning Revelation About Durham

From text messages contained in Powell’s explosive new filing, it's been confirmed for the first time that U.S. Attorney John Durham had already conducted at least one interview with DOJ/FBI personnel in May 2017. And there's no doubt this interview was part of investigations into Spygate-related leaking campaigns.

In fact, text messages exchanged by FBI personnel in April 2017 show their concern that the leaking investigation they were discussing wasn't going to be handled by the DOJ's internal National Security Division as they had expected. Instead, it turns out that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions was giving that investigation to Durham.

And by May, these FBI officials were texting each other about their interviews with Durham, which demonstrates that Durham wasted no time in getting his investigation started.

Stunning Developments in the Past Week

The truth of when Durham first began investigating Spygate wasn’t the only stunning recent development.

There was also:

The Senate Report (pdf)Hunter Biden allegedly had been handed millions of dollars from foreign sources while his father was vice president of the United States. While his position on the corporate board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma had been widely discussed, this report contained much stunning new information—including how the younger Biden had been wired more than $3.5 million by a Putin associate.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) declassification letterFormer FBI Director James Comey was sent an investigative referral by the intelligence community in September 2016 regarding information that the Clinton campaign was preparing to launch a fake Russia scandal targeting the Trump campaign.
It should be noted with keen interest that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe did this declassification just one day prior to Comey’s scheduled testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Why Declassification Matters

According to former DNI Richard Grenell, the Spygate plotters and their enablers have long resorted to the tactic of classifying anything that's exculpatory or counts against the narrative they were pursuing.

Recall the loud complaining from people such as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) when Grenell declassified over 50 transcripts of congressional testimony from Spygate participants that had been held from public view for more than two years.

While these transcripts were hidden, Schiff and other Russiagate hoaxers were quite free to make extravagant claims about evidence they had supposedly seen of Trump/Russia collusion.

Once the public could see the transcripts for themselves, it became apparent that not only had none of those testifying ever seen any evidence of collusion, but Schiff and others had also been lying for more than two years.

It should be crystal clear by now to all but the most rabid of partisans, the Russiagate hoax was only advanced and sustained over the past four years by “hiding information.” The key tactic used to hide the key information from the public was to classify it.

The more that the carefully and selectively hidden information emerges, the more the Spygate scandal continues to grow. Because, as I’ve often said, the Russiagate hoax was always 100 percent fake, and the ever-growing Spygate scandal is 100 percent real.

The Clinton Campaign Fully Exposed

The first major blow to the Russiagate hoax was the Mueller special counsel investigation coming to an end with a whimper and not the long-anticipated bang.

The second major blow was the release of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s FISA abuse report in December 2019.

And the third major blow—the killing blow, as it were—is this latest declassification from Ratcliffe, which reveals that top law enforcement and intelligence agency officials enthusiastically pursuing the Trump campaign for supposed Russian collusion were aware all along that this was a fabrication of the Clinton campaign.

They suppressed key information by classifying it and continued their enthusiastic pursuit of the Trump team anyway.

And now they’re caught.
