While everyone was focused on the House Speaker battle this week, a few interesting stories were overwhelmed and deserve to be revisited.
Matt Taibbi released Twitter File drop #12 (IC Infiltration) and Twitter File Drop #13 (FBI Specifics) using information from his access to the internal documents of the social media platform. Additionally, columnist Lee Smith wrote an excellent and extensive outline showing the arc of the FBI involvement in social media, as specifically centered around former FBI Legal Counsel James Baker.
In the Taibbi release (Twitter File #12) he outlines how Senate Select Committee Vice-Chair Mark Warner was instrumental in framing a media narrative that boxed in Twitter, forcing them to allow the intelligence apparatus through the front door.
Within the Russiagate and intelligence state storyline, the one person who has not been given enough scrutiny is Senate Mark Warner. In fact, Warner was elevated to his position inside the SSCI in January of 2017 specifically as an outcome of the 2016 election. Senator Warner replaced Senator Dianne Feinstein with the specific mission to coverup the committee involvement in 2016 election operations.
