This is my Qanon thread for July 29, 2018.

Many people have given up hope that corrupt government officials will ever be prosecuted. We’ve been programmed by years of experience to believe they’ve rigged the system in a way that will forever allow them to evade prosecution.
There is no disappointment without expectation. Many of us have unrealistic expectations of what the prosecution of corruption looks like. We want arrests and we want them yesterday and until the crooks are in jail, we won’t be satisfied. The corruption in government is cleverly disguised crime syndicate. The arrest of America’s most notorious crime syndicate leader, Al Capone, provides a blueprint for the way our own corrupt government officials will be taken down.
I’ll do my best to piece together the sometimes confusing issues, people, and dates that when assembled, shine a light on the clear trail of evidence exposing one of the biggest crime syndicates in modern times. The trail begins by understanding FISA surveillance. I’d to thank Jeff @themarketswork and Sundance @TheLastRefuge2 for the tens of thousands of hours of research they’ve done and the information they’ve shared on FISA and the intelligence community. Sundance has been telling us for more than 6 months that the criminal activity of government officials always leads back to the illegal way in which they gained intelligence and used it in court for political purposes.
When the mainstream media talks about FISA abuse they only discuss it when forced to and never connect the dots. Reporting is minimal and done in a way that obfuscates its importance and confuses the public. There’s a reason for that. Coming soon is an Inspector General’s report on alleged abuse of the intelligence apparatus and FISA. If we take time now to learn about FISA, we’ll be ahead of the game when the next IG report is made public.If the last Inspector General report left you disappointed, remember, it’s not Horowitz’s job to prosecute. His work is considered internal affairs. His publicly available reports make recommendations for more efficient operations inside the department. What the media overlooks—and therefore what most people don’t see—are the criminal referrals that come out of Horowitz’s investigations which are being funneled through the office of John Huber. (An office that has been sealed up airtight to prevent information leaks.)
We know that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) authorized FISA Title I surveillance of Carter Page. The question is whether it arose organically out of routine FBI operations or whether it was the objective of a political campaign. If the TItle I surveillance on Carter Page arose organically—if it was the result of the FBI doing routine work—then there would be no trail of evidence pointing to an intentional plan. If there is evidence of a plan—and especially if there is evidence of an attempt to conceal a plan—it would be hard to argue that the surveillance arose organically. In 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder without an official change of policy or change of law, suddenly decided not to allow the DOJ Inspector General access to the DOJ’s National Security Division records. Prior to that time, the DOJ Inspector General had full access.
Yet Dan Coates, Director of National Intelligence, thought it would be helpful to declassify a memo exposing misuse and potential abuse of the FISA process by the FBI. Why?
When the abuse of the FISA database by the FBI and their contractors was discovered, Admiral Rogers immediately prohibited further access by contractors. We don’t know with certainty who the contractors were but Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike are the two main suspects. Both have a long history of working with the FBI.
The FBI’s Outside Contractors, DNC Servers & Crowdstrike The DNC lawsuit against Russia and the Trump Campaign provides for a new timeline of events. And raises new questions. Recall, the DNC famously refused to allow the FBI to examine their servers.  The director of the DOJ National Security Division is required to report irregularities in FISA requests and is required to certify annually FISA compliance. In 2016, John P. Carlin was the head of DOJ National Security Division. In January of 2016, the NSA Inspector General filed a report outlining numerous FISA compliance violations. 
On September 26, 2016, Carlin filed his annual certifications with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The following day, Carlin announced he was stepping down from his position at DOJ effective October 15th. Why?
Head of Justice National Security Division to step down Assistant Attorney General John Carlin will step down next month after than seven years, officials said.  I suspect that Carlin knew the jig was up. The illegal surveillance activities were being exposed and if he stuck around, he’d take the fall. (QAnon said Carlin forced to step down.)
What purpose would the FBI have for allowing private contractors to access the NSA database? Simple. If you need information on an opponent, the database has everything you need. It seems the FBI allowed Fusion GPS to access the database to obtain information for their private “research.” Our theory: Fusion GPS was allowed by the FBI to obtain information from the NSA database. They then turned around and gave the same information to the FBI, who took it to court to get a FISA approval for surveillance on a target. The process is a bit more complicated & involves handing off the information to multiple intermediaries. Each adds information then passes it to someone else. The end game is to manufacture evidence for a FISA application. (Sundance calls it the Intelligence Laundry.)
From May 2016 through Sep 2016 this was how they gathered intelligence. In May of 2016, Nellie Ohr began using a HAM Radio to try to evade NSA’s watchful eye. [They failed]  October 2016: Compliance Officer reports to Admiral Rogers: FBI gave raw FISA information to a private entity that was not a federal agency and whose personnel were not sufficiently supervised by a federal agency for compliance minimization procedures. The violations pertained to FISA “About” queries. On October 26th. 2016, Admiral Rogers shuts down all FISA “About Queries”, and never allows them to restart again.) By October of 2016, the surveillance project was complete. Bruce Ohr met secretly with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS. (A meeting that once exposed, cost Ohr his job and security clearance.)
Top DOJ official demoted amid probe of contacts with Trump dossier firm A senior Justice Department official was demoted this week amid an ongoing investigation into his contacts with the opposition research firm responsible for the anti-Trump “dossier.” 
Funny, it was never disclosed which white hat in the intelligence community released the information to the press about Ohr’s secret meeting with Simpson. The gathering of intelligence from the NSA database by Fusion GPS and Nellie Ohr had a specific purpose. They needed to connect someone on the Trump team with Russia. They found their connection with Carter Page.
The DOJ applied at least once, (perhaps twice) in the summer of 2016 for FISA authorization but the requests were denied. An October request was granted.
Rather than Russian banks, we now know (because the application was released) that the FISA application was a request to surveil Carter Page.
Because the FBI/DOJ team assumed Hillary would win the election, they never thought their activities would be publicly exposed. When the FISA application was made public, it was revealed that the dossier was the main supporting evidence.
The dossier on Trump and people connected to him was reported to be damning and full of verified reports from trusted sources. (Much of the information came from the NSA database.) Link to full text of dossier.  James Comey said that the information in the dossier had never been verified. That’s understandable because he never thought the application would be made public. (It’s a felony to knowingly present false information to a Federal Court.)
In December of last year, it was disclosed that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were removed from Mueller’s team for inappropriate texting.
Someone (we don’t know who) released documents from the Justice Department showing that Mueller’s ‘bulldog’ Andrew Weissman secretly met with 4 AP reporters and may have illegally leaked Grand Jury information to them related to Paul Manafort.
Why did someone from the intelligence community let us know that Peter Strzok changed the wording in Jim Comey’s letter exonerating Hillary from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless?”
The June Inspector General’s report disclosed the fact that many FBI agents were engaged in behavior with the media that amounts to bribery. That activity is being investigated and may result in criminal referrals. IG Report: FBI Officials Accepted Bribes From Media… On Page Xii of the IG report the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG) highlights numerous FBI officials who accepted bribes from multiple media outlets including: “tick tock.” 
Consider this: In late January, it was leaked to the press that FBI Director Chris Wray was considering resigning.
The most likely explanation is that the leaker inside Congress was given an altered document, knowing they would leak it to the media. Once the fake story was published, the real document was made public and the leaker was exposed. Remember the leaked story (again from Mueller’s team) that Trump-related records had been subpoenaed from Deutsche Bank? Deutsche Bank Records Said to Be Subpoenaed by Mueller Deutsche Bank AG provided records to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation after receiving a subpoena several weeks ago, according to a person briefed on the matter.  Funny… that scoop also turned out to be a setup, no doubt, to expose another leaker within the Mueller team. Bloomberg corrects Trump subpoena story Bloomberg has corrected its bombshell report that special counsel Robert Mueller had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank (DB) records pertaining to President Trump. 
Brian Ross of ABC was probably set up with bad intel in the same way.
