Docs: Spygate Researchers Did Work For Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller
The U.S. Department of Defense and personal people pumping the Alfa Bank scam likewise helped previous Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s examination into Donald Trump for expected collusion with Russia, recently found files recommend.
The Georgia Tech scientists involved in the Alfa Bank scam ready white documents for the U.S. Department of Defense about the Democratic National Committee hack and produced a “Mueller List” on the Russian intelligence firm hackers, the freshly gotten files show. The white documents were prepared for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a area of the U.S. Department of Defense.
A current dump of files from Georgia Tech exposes that explosive information and numerous other truths linked to the continuing unique counsel examination into Spygate. Here’s a rundown.
White Papers for the U.S. Department of Defense
Last month, The Federalist veryfirst reported that Special Counsel John Durham’s group asked lead Georgia Tech scientist Manos Antonakakis: “‘Do you think that DARPA needsto be advising you to examine the origins of a hacker (Guccifer_2.0) that hacked a political entity (DNC)?’” Antonakakis reacted that that was a concern for the DARPA director, an suggested recommendation that yes, DARPA had asked him to examine the hack.
In action, DARPA’s chief of interactions denied any participation “in efforts to characteristic the DNC hack.” “Dr. Antonakakis worked on DARPA’s Enhanced Attribution program, which did not include analysis of the DNC hack,” DARPA spokesperson Jared Adams informed the Washington Examiner. Adams more informed the Washington Examiner that “DARPA was not included in efforts to characteristic the Guccifer 2.0 personality, nor any participation in efforts to characteristic the origin of dripped e-mails supplied to Wikileaks.”
But now an e-mail gotten by The Federalist shows Georgia Tech scientists prepared a series of white documents for DARPA, consistingof on the “DNC attack attribution,” and on what they called a “Mueller List” of “domains and indications associated” to DNC hackers.
The e-mail outdated July 23, 2021 followed Durham dropping a 2nd subpoena on Georgia Tech for more files associated to its examination of the Alfa Bank scam and other associated problems. (More on that subpoena listedbelow). In that e-mail, a attorney representing David Dagon, the 2nd Georgia Tech scientist included in the Alfa Bank scam who likewise worked on the DARPA Enhanced Attribution program, shared a list of “documents/data sources” Dagon thought would be responsive to the subpoena of Georgia Tech files.
Listed under the heading of “DARPA whitepapers” were 4 files, consistingof “Whitepaper on DNC attack attribution”; Analysis of attacks of EOP (Executive Office of the President) networks”; “Whitepaper for DOJ on APT-29 associated hackers, crypto coin deals, and analysis that consistsof Yota-related domains”; and “‘Mueller List’—list of domains and sign associated to APT-28.”
Of these DARPA whitepapers, the veryfirst and 4th both relate to the DNC hack, with the last paper likewise linking to the Mueller examination. APT-28 is the more official name for the Russian intelligence group of hackers understood informally as Fancy Bear. As part of his examination, Mueller charged 12 Russian intelligence representatives supposedly working as Fancy Bear with criminalactivities associated to the DNC hack.
This e-mail represents the newest proof recommending Georgia Tech and DARPA helped in the DNC hack examination and Mueller’s examination, regardlessof DARPA’s strident rejections.
The above e-mail raises a 2nd concern worth penetrating, particularly whether tech executive Rodney Joffe utilized the whitepaper Georgia Tech scientists ready for DARPA on “Yota-related domains” in his continued effort to frame Trump as conspiring with Russia.
As I discussed earlier this week, in February 2017, Michael Sussmann, supposedly on behalf of Joffe, provided the CIA 4 files of information claiming to program the usage of the Russian-made Yotaphone near Trump. The Yotaphone allegedly tookatrip with Trump to Michigan and lateron to the Executive Office of the President throughout the governmental shift duration.
The Yotaphone scam, as I comprehensive, represents a big scandal since it included both the exploitation of delicate information associated to the EOP and the evident physical (or electronic) monitoring of Trump. Further, the information supplied to the CIA was misleading by omission and marketed to trigger a CIA examination of the sitting president of the United States of America.
But the above e-mail now includes to the scandal the possibility that the DARPA-funded researchstudy on the Yota domains was shared with Joffe or other outsiders, who then utilized that intel to track the Russian-based Yotaphones to develop the conspiracy theory lateron pitched to the CIA. This possible circumstance requires evenmore examination.
Georgia Tech Gave Mueller a Large File of Trump-Related Material That Went Missing
That the Georgia Tech scientists worked with Mueller’s examination into Trump likewise appears clear from an exchange inbetween lead districtattorney Andrew DeFilippis and the Georgia Attorney General’s Office, which represented Georgia Tech in its reaction to the subpoena. In that e-mail thread, the lawyer representing Georgia Tech keptinmind that DeFilippis had “indicated that there was a ‘fairly big file of Trump associated products’ that hadactually been puttogether for production to the workplace of Special Counsel Robert [Mueller] or the DOJ.”
“We are notable to find such a file,” the e-mail continued, even however “Dr. Antonakakis has browsed his server for such a file and did not discover anything conference that description.”
Whether the “fairly big file of Trump associated products” was ever discovered is unidentified.
Durham Is Digging Far and Wide
The most current Georgia Tech files likewise expose the breadth and scope of the prospective conspiracies Durham is examining, with a subpoena from July 2021 to Georgia Tech and its associated company lookingfor files associated to “a supposed secret interactions channel inbetween the Trump Organization, Spectrum Health, and the Russian Bank Alfa Bank,” as well as product associated to “the supposed existence or usage of Russian-made Yotaphones by or in the area of Donald Trump or people associated with Donald Trump.”
Significantly, the subpoena likewise lookedfor “all files, records, and info” associated to the Alfa Bank and Yotaphone researchstudy, consistingof work carriedout under or pursuant to agreements with DARPA.
The Georgia Tech files likewise expose that this subpoena is the 2nd served on the university by the unique counsel’s workplace, with the veryfirst released in fall 2020, according to another e-mail. (One marvels what the initial subpoena lookedfor and what put the detectives onto the Alfa Bank and Yotaphone path.) Emails launched likewise suggest that the unique counsel’s workplace subpoenaed files from Dagon.
Immunity for Dagon
Emails consistedof in the Right-to-Know release from Georgia Tech likewise supply more texture to the Durham case versus Sussmann, who is presently waitingfor trial next month on a charge that he lied to the now-former FBI General Counsel James Baker in offering Baker information and white documents professing to develop the Trump-Alfa Bank secret interaction network.
Last Friday, in reaction to Sussmann’s claim that Durham must be needed to supply Joffe resistance so the tech executive would affirm on Susssmann’s behalf, the unique counsel keptinmind that to date it had just inoculated one witness—Dagon. The unique counsel keptinmind that it given Dagon resistance on July 28, 2021, “because, amongst other factors, at least 5 other witnesses who carriedout work relating to the [Alfa Bank] accusations conjuredup (or suggested their intent to conjureup) their right versus self-incrimination.”
The files examined by The Federalist program that, as of July 26, 2021, Dagon was “en path to DC for his conference with the Special Counsel and statement with the Grand Jury,” significance the resistance grant came late in the day for Dagon. Another e-mail from Dagon’s lawyer to Georgia Tech keptinmind that “David Dagon was provided complete statutory resistance by the Special Counsel in its examination.”
“He hasactually been complying and working with the Special Counsel’s group and affirmed priorto the Grand Jury on 3 days,” Dagon’s lawyer Jody Westby informed the Georgia Tech legal group, in the context of askingfor payment from the university for the legal services Westby and her group carriedout on behalf of Dagon.
That Dagon affirmed for 3 days priorto the grand jury recommends the unique counsel’s group had rather a coupleof concerns to ask the cyber scientist. From another e-mail, it appears mostlikely that, whatever Dagon stated, he persuaded the unique counsel’s workplace that Antonakakis was not included in any criminal activity. On July 29, 2021, Antonakakis’ lawyer Mark Schamel emailed DeFilippis, keepinginmind that now that the unique counsel has “appropriately classified Dr. Antonakakis as a witness,” they would gladly talkabout a follow-up conference with Durham’s group.
Georgia Tech Entered a Joint Defense Agreement—Until It Didn’t
Another interesting information consistedof in the Georgia Tech dump worried the evident joint defense arrangement the people captured in the Alfa Bank scam atfirst wentinto into with each other. A “joint-defense contract” is where celebrations concur to exchange private details and work together, generally, however not constantly, in relation to a criminal examination. When celebrations have wentinto a joint-defense arrangement, they might share details and interactions with each other, without the interactions losing the security of attorney-client opportunity.
After the unique counsel dropped its 2nd subpoena on Georgia Tech, Dagon’s lawyer emailed a legalrepresentative at Georgia Tech, keepinginmind that Dagon would not be reacting to the subpoena served on Georgia Tech—that was exclusively Georgia Tech’s obligation. Dagon’s lawyer then included: “We have neverever seen the veryfirst subpoena Georgia Tech produced or your production; nor have we seen this 2nd subpoena. Although Georgia Tech concurred to an casual joint defense contract, after we produced our subpoena and pertinent files, Georgia Tech pulled back from that and declined to share any info, . . . We are likewise not privy to your conversations with the Special Counsel workplace.”
A coupleof days lateron, Dagon’s lawyer supplied more background when she emailed the Georgia lawyer basic’s workplace, keepinginmind that Georgia Tech “cannot fruitandvegetables those white documents,” in recommendation to 3 white documents Dagon’s attorney had supplied Georgia Tech’s attorney in September 2020.
Those white documents, Dagon’s legalrepresentative keptinmind, “were shared under a joint defense/common interest contract and came from other counsel.” “We shared them with Ga Tech when we were in a joint defense contract with them, till [Georgia Tech’s lawyer] chose Ga Tech might not getinvolved anylonger, apparently on recommendations from the Georgia AG workplace,” Dagon’s lawyer snarked.
This exchange recommends that Georgia Tech, in addition to havingactually goneinto into a joint defense contract with Dagon, had wentinto into one with another of the gamers included in the Alfa Bank scam, although which one is unidentified.
Also of interest is that Dagon’s lawyer keptinmind that she anticipates “all of our interactions with GA Tech counsel’s workplace will be secured from disclosure, because the subpoena does not ask for files associated to David Dagon’s counsel.” The concern, then, is whether unique counsel Durham ever saw those 3 white documents or ever followed up with a subpoena for interactions with Dagon’s lawyer. If not, he might desire to do so now.
