Legal analyst Gregg Jarrett examines story behind Hillary Clinton's "leave behinds" — those collaborators and operatives in government still doing her bidding through sabotage, scandal-mongering, and goosing up Clinton-campaign 'dossiers' to pawn off as verified. Examines the actions of these campaign operatives during and after the 2016 election. Include persons within the FBI and Barack Obama's Justice Department worked improperly and illegally to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in that 2016 presidential election.
When the sabotage operations failed, those same individuals appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president. Jarrett says that the evidence suggests partisans within the FBI and the Department of Justice, driven by personal animus and a sense of smug political righteousness, surreptitiously acted to subvert electoral democracy in our country.
Asks how Clinton escaped prosecution despite evidence she violated the law? Did Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, and others obstruct justice in a rush to protect Clinton whom they assumed would be their next leader? Why was there never a legitimate criminal investigation of Clinton in the Uranium One case? Are the text messages exchanged between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page evidence of a concerted effort to undermine the electoral process? Under testimony, Strzok says no, but Page says yes. Was there ever any real evidence of "collusion" between Trump and the Russians? Did Trump obstruct justice in the firing of Comey or was he legally exercising his constitutional authority? Did the FBI and DOJ improperly use a discredited "dossier" about Trump to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump associates? Should Mueller have disqualified himself under the special counsel law based on glaring conflicts of interest? Was fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn unfairly charged with making a false statement?
Jarrett is a trial attorney, adjunct law school professor, former COURT TV anchor, and legal analyst for Fox News.
Guy Liddell was the Director of MI5's counter-espionage B Division throughout the Second World War, during which he wrote a confidential personal diary. Within its pages details of virtually every important event that had any intelligence significance during the conflict were recorded. Liddell's diaries were never intended for publication and are filled with indiscretions that shed new light on MI5 investigations that he supervised after his promotion to Deputy Director-General.
Those recently declassified diaries, edited by Nigel West (famous intelligence historian and member of AFIO's honorary board), have been followed by a postwar series which cover the period from the German surrender until Liddell's sudden resignation in May 1953. These eight years of the early Cold War contain many disturbing secrets, such as the cache of incriminating Nazi documents which was supposed to be destroyed by the SS. When these were recovered intact the British government went to considerable lengths to keep their contents from being disclosed, for they provided proof of the Duke of Windsor's contact—through a Portuguese intermediary—with the enemy during the crucial period in 1940 when the ex-king declared himself ready to fly back from the Bahamas and be restored to the throne. One of Liddell's first tasks, at the request of Buckingham Palace, was to retrieve and suppress the damaging material.
Many in Whitehall anticipated that Liddell would become Director-General but, as West reveals, he had employed Anthony Blunt as his trusted personal assistant, found it hard to accept clear evidence of Kim Philby's treachery, and had maintained an unwise friendship with Guy Burgess. Despite Liddell's failings and reluctance to believe in the disloyalty of men he regarded as friends, he was probably the single most influential British intelligence officer of his era.
UK Intelligence and Police Using Child Spies in Covert Operations. British police and intelligence agencies are using children as spies in covert operations against terrorists, gangs and drug dealers.
A committee of the House of Lords revealed the practice while raising the alarm over government plans to give law enforcement bodies more freedom over their use of children.
Some of the child spies are aged under 16, the committee says, adding that it was worried about proposals to extend from one month to four the period of time between each occasion that child spies go through a re-registration process.
"We are concerned that enabling a young person to participate in covert activity associated with serious crime for an extended period of time may increase the risks to their mental and physical welfare," said the committee, chaired by Lord Trefgarne, a former Tory government minister.

Judge Limits Canada's International Spying Reach. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service does not have the legal authority to spy outside of Canada unless national security is at stake, a Federal Court judge has ruled.
Under Canadian law, CSIS can track down terrorism suspects and other national-security threats in Canada and around the world. It is also allowed to spy on foreigners who are not considered threats to the country, but these specific probes of foreigners have to be conducted wholly within Canada, according to the court's decision.
Wednesday's ruling comes after CSIS sought judicial permission to buttress aspects of a domestic investigation targeting foreigners in Canada with information about them that came from outside the country.
Few other details about this particular probe are known − the names of specific countries, targets, techniques and even dates are all being withheld from the publicly released version of the decision. [Read More: theglobeandmail/19Jul2018]
NGA Is On the Hunt for a New CTO. The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is looking for a new chief technology officer to be the agency's "authoritative expert for technology."
It's a high-profile gig - the individual will "develop strategy related to defense intelligence information management and technology," and in doing so "directly influence national information systems, military strategy, doctrines, and policies."
In a very thorough job listing, the agency outlines what it wants: a results-driven leader with business acumen who is good at leading people and building coalitions. The executive also needs, unsurprisingly, "experience in information management and technology, including technical architectures, standards, systems, applications, and networks."
Interested applicants who meet the qualifications (a doctorate in science, math or technology is "desirable but not required") have until Aug. 15 to get an application (and also five copies of that application) to the agency. [Read More: Chappellet-Lanier/fedscoop/23Jul2018]
Romanian MPs Want Intelligence Service Agents On Board Aircraft. A draft law initiated by eight Romanian MPs, which is aimed at amending and completing the law on the Prevention and Combating of Terrorism, says that officers of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) will be in charge of security on board all aircraft registered in Romania, local Adevarul reported.
The bill's provisions also target commercial flights operated by the airlines licensed by the Bucharest authorities. The SRI agents would work undercover.
"In order to prevent acts of terrorism on board civil aircraft registered in Romania/belonging to air carriers licensed by the Romanian state, the Romanian Intelligence Service ensures the presence and coordination of the armed guards on board the aircraft, in accordance with the national security policy or the obligations assumed by Romania through international acts," reads the bill.
"Globally, terrorism got new dimensions, being a phenomenon close to our space, not a distant one, [...] and the Romanian citizens may be affected by the consequences of terrorist acts," according to the bill's explanatory memorandum. [Read More: Marica/romania-insder/19Jul2018]
Ex-intelligence Officer Pleads Not Guilty In Espionage Case. A former U.S. intelligence officer has pleaded not guilty to charges he tried to sell secrets to China.
Ron Rockwell Hansen entered his plea in a federal court in his home state of Utah on Friday.
Judge Paul Warner has ordered him held without bail pending trial.
The case was moved from Washington, where 58-year-old Hansen was arrested in June after allegedly meeting with an FBI informant and discussing selling U.S. military plans to Chinese intelligence. Authorities say he was on his way to board a flight to China. [Read More: AP/upr/18Jul2018]
The Army Wants to Build a Better Signals Intelligence Force. The Army's top intelligence official signed the service's new signals intelligence strategy July 16, a move that defense leaders believe leaves the Army better situated to better fight despite electronic warfare and cyber attacks.
The new strategy ensures "our readiness to provide timely and relevant SIGINT-support [and meet] the commander's information needs in a large scale combat operation against a sophisticated adversary," Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, said July 18 during an event on Capitol Hill hosted by the Association of Old Crows.
Officials say the integration of SIGINT, electronic warfare and cyber is critical from a material, organization and doctrinal perspective.
"Not only will our four lines of effort improve our SIGINT corps' capabilities and relevance in the face of rapid changes in the global security environment, it will also enable our electronic warfare and cyberspace effort to meet new challenges," Berrier said.

Acting CIA Watchdog Up for Top Job Resigns. The acting watchdog at the CIA, who has been accused of retaliating against whistleblowers, is resigning, the agency confirmed Friday.
Christopher Sharpley, whose nomination for the inspector general post had stalled in the Senate, said in a memo to employees that he is stepping down within 30 days.
CIA spokesman Ryan Trapani said in a statement the agency was grateful to Sharpley for his service, "including his work to professionalize" the office. Sharpley has 36 years of investigative and law enforcement experience and created two inspectors general offices within the government.
"After three decades of public service, he has decided to continue his career outside the agency, and we wish him the best in this new chapter," Trapani said. "CIA's commitment to rigorous, independent oversight is unwavering, and the Office of Inspector General will carry on that important mission through the transition."

Former Trump Cyber Adviser Tapped for Top Intelligence Role in UK. Rob Joyce, President Donald Trump's former cybersecurity coordinator, has been tapped to serve as the National Security Agency's top representative in the United Kingdom, according to a former senior intelligence official and a second source familiar with the matter.
As senior US liaison officer in London for the US's top digital spy agency, which vacuums up communications from around the globe, Joyce "will be responsible for the full breadth of NSA mission in and to the UK government," the former senior intelligence official told CNN.
It is "the most important overseas post the NSA has," they added, due to the NSA's close relationship with the British digital intelligence agency, the Government Communications Headquarters or GCHQ.
Joyce's appointment, following a stream of high-level White House departures after John Bolton took the reins at the National Security Council, comes at a time when Trump's negative comments about trade, defense spending, intelligence and other topics in Brussels and Helsinki sent a shockwave through Europe and around the world.

Here's Your Guide to GRU and Other Russian Agencies that Spy on America. The indictments of 12 Russian agents accused off hacking into Democratic computers put a spotlight on the GRU, the Russian military intelligence agency.
Here's a guide to deciphering GRU and the alphabet-soup of other major Russian spy and defense agencies:
GRU - In English, the name of this agency is the Main Intelligence Directorate. It is Russia's largest military intelligence agency and is tasked with spying on other nations on behalf of the government.
Twelve officials from the agency were indicted as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. The agents were accused of participating in a far-reaching cyber attack that targeted the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

First She was Accused of Being a 'sex spy' for Russia. Now She Faces a New Battle to Stay in Canada. Elena Crenna and her Canadian husband were thrilled when a federal tribunal ruled she was not a "sex spy" for Russia and should be cleared for permanent residency in Canada.
"We were relieved that sanity finally prevailed. We were jubilant," Crenna said of the immigration tribunal's decision in May. "We even went on a trip to visit my son in the States. We thought we were done and could move on with our lives."
Their joy was short-lived, however, when they learned the Canada Border Services Agency is appealing the decision, saying the 56-year-old Russian-born American citizen shouldn't be allowed to live in Canada because she allegedly engaged in espionage activities while working for a Canadian Crown corporation near Moscow in the 1990s.
Crenna insists the allegations are untrue and that continuing to pursue the case is a "waste of our resources and Canada's resources." [Read More: Keung/thestar/21Jul2018]

After you walk through the SPYSCAPE doors and receive your special wristband, you are considered a spy. Wondering what this special wristband is? It's a tracker that notes how you do at each station, what your personality traits are (based off of questions answered), and your overall intelligence result. Added together, you get your spy profile. There are many categories that you could be placed in: Agent Handler, Cryptologist, Hacker, Intelligence Analyst, Intelligence Operative, Special Ops Officer, Spycatcher, Spymaster, Surveillance Officer, or Technical Ops Officer. Make sure to give the staff an email address because after you complete your visit, they will send over a more in-depth look at your spy profile and the meaning of the traits of your assigned 'job.' It is essential to make sure the bracelet is on you at all times because it is your ticket to all the fun.
SPYSCAPE has worked with real-life spies and psychologists to create their profile attributes, trials, and tribulations. Know that going into this experience will give you both a mental and physical look at what it means to be a spy in the modern era and in the past as well.
Each activity done tests your skills in one of four areas all great spies need to have: surveillance, agility, deception, and encryption. While getting to complete each activity is exciting, don't skip over the other attractions. [Read More: Aronson/cityguideny/23Jul2018]
Section III - COMMENTARY
Will Dan Coats Resign? Intelligence Chief is Much-Needed 'Sane' Voice Around Trump, Obama's CIA Director Says. Former CIA Director Leon Panetta said Monday that Dan Coats was a necessary "sane" voice surrounding President Donald Trump after the United States's top intelligence official rebuffed calls to resign Monday. A senior former intelligence official suggested Monday that Coats should consider his future in light of Trump appearing to side with Vladimir Putin's denial that the Kremlin had a vast and continuing program to interfere in U.S. elections.
Trump, asked during his Helsinki press conference with the Russian president "who do you believe?" - Putin or his own U.S. intelligence agencies - said the Russian leader provided a compelling argument during their meeting earlier in the day.
"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today," Trump said in a remark that stunned many former top defense and intelligence officials. He then went on to repeat his attacks on the Democrats and the FBI. Last week, the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers on charges of interfering in the 2016 elections.
To many critics, Trump's unscripted statement echoed his remarks after neo-Nazis and white supremacists attacked demonstrators in Charlottesville last summer, when he claimed there were "some very fine people on both sides." [Read More: Stein/newsweek/16Jul2018]
The National Intelligence Director Issued a Warning About a Cyber 9/11-Like Cyberattack. In 2013, when I was in graduate school studying cybersecurity policy, the Atlantic Council, a think tank in Washington, launched its annual Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge. Born out of fears of a coming "Cyber 9/11" or "Digital Pearl Harbor," the competition asks students to come up with hypothetical response recommendations (hence the day-after title) tackling a fictional cyber catastrophe.
I've participated in that event many times over the years―both as a student and later as a faculty coach - so I've read through a number of different scenarios explicitly designed to be cyber Sept. 11 equivalents, ranging from widespread malware attacks directed at U.S. oil refineries to massive bots of Internet of Things devices deployed to shut down power plants, trains, and shipping companies.
Yet, for all the years spent thinking about these scenarios, I'm still largely mystified by the comments director of national intelligence Dan Coats gave last week warning of a growing threat of a foreign actor executing a "crippling cyberattack on our critical infrastructure." He suggested that daily the cyberstrikes on government, corporate, and academic institutions we see today are on par with the "alarming activities" that the U.S. intelligence community saw from al-Qaida in the weeks leading up to Sept. 11, 2001.
"Here we are nearly two decades later, and I'm here to say the warning lights are blinking red again," Coats said in the talk at the Hudson Institute, apparently referring to increasingly sophisticated or high-volume intrusion attempts from Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea in recent years (activity that comes as no surprise to anyone who followed the Justice Department's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers last week).

counterterrorism issues throughout the Balkans and the Middle East. The
PDB, sometimes referred to as the President's Daily Briefing or the
President's Daily Bulletin, is a top-secret document provided each morning
to the US President and also distributed to a small number of top-level US
officials approved by the President. It includes highly-classified
intelligence analysis, information about CIA covert operations, and
reports from the most sensitive US sources or those shared by allied
intelligence agencies. The PDB is produced by the Director of National
Intelligence, and involves fusing intelligence from CIA, DIA, NSA, the FBI
and other members of the US Intelligence Community.

AFIO's 788-page Guide to the Study of
Intelligence. Peter C. Oleson,
Editor, also makes a good gift. View authors and table of contents here.
AFIO's Guide to the Study of Intelligence helps instructors teach about the large variety of subjects that make up the field of intelligence. This includes secondary school teachers of American History, Civics, or current events and undergraduate and graduate professors of History, Political Science, International Relations, Security Studies, and related topics, especially those with no or limited professional experience in the field. Even those who are former practitioners are likely to have only a limited knowledge of the very broad field of intelligence, as most spend their careers in one or two agencies at most and may have focused only on collection or analysis of intelligence or support to those activities.
For a printed, bound copy, it is $95 which
includes Fedex shipping to a CONUS (US-based) address.
Order the Guide from the AFIO's store at this link.
The Guide is also available directly from Amazon at this link.
