Leaked Chat Logs Purport to Show 'Deep
State' Planting Anti-Trump Stories With Media
Images purportedly circulating on the "dark web" show unidentified individuals alleged to be members of the intelligence community discussing how they are planting stories with the media to embarrass President Trump.
The chat logs, taken from Gliph, an encrypted secure messaging service, purport to show a conversation, "held between approximately 5 individuals in the United States intelligence community on Wednesday, May 17th from 2:31 pm to 3:15 pm," reports the Third Estate Newsgroup.
Infowars cannot independently verify that the chat logs are genuine. They could have been mocked up. We are not asserting that they are authentic, although this story is now circulating and is worthy of discussion given the content of the messages.
The messages were leaked by an individual by the name of 'FreshCamel' who posted them on dark web message boards on Wednesday night. He claims to have accessed a high-level FBI employee's computer on April 24 via a falsified "phishing" email that installed spyware on the computer when a link was opened.
'FreshCamel' monitored the chats for weeks without realizing what they were but was alerted when a topic discussed on Wednesday became breaking news across the country just hours later.
The chat mentions "RR" and Mueller, a clear reference to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein naming former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special prosecutor to head up the investigation into collusion between Trump and Russia.
"RR isn't taking shit and he knows our friends have stuff on him," writes one user called 'Dooku', adding, "I'm hearing Mueller, maybe by the end of the week."
"Hearing that too, WH will be blind-sided," responds another user called 'Severus'.
Another user called 'Jules' subsequently comments, "RM is happening tonight," to which 'Dooku' responds, "Tonight. Fuck. Quicker than I thought."
Parts of the conversation also relate to MF (Michael Flynn), with the intention of putting him "back in the news" by having someone called 'S' draft a "memo" that connects Flynn to Turkey.
The next day, news broke that Flynn had allegedly accepted money from the Turkish government to block a plan to arm Kurdish forces in Syria.
A user called 'Huck' makes reference to "our friends in New York" in the context of the Flynn story.
"I'm sure we'll need a few more "memos" down the road. Good practice," remarks 'Severus', ending the comment with a wink emoticon, a possible reference to the Comey memo that was reported later that day.
The chat log also mentions a "project" that involves feeding fake stories to someone referred to as "Limey," which the Third Estate Newsgroup speculates is a reference to Louise Mensch, a 'Never Trump' British journalist who has become infamous for releasing dubious stories about Trump's collusion with the Kremlin.
"Third Estate Newsgroup suspects, but cannot confirm, that this mention of “Limey” refers to Mensch, and if true, would suggest that Mensch’s “sources” might be members of the intelligence community, but could be feeding her false information to support their own leaking and disinformation operations," states the report.
Another portion of the chat mentions AEWP - possibly a reference to a Washington Post journalist - and a "tape" that was supposedly given to this individual.
The whistleblower who allegedly leaked the chats is not interested in U.S. politics and claims he initially thought the intel agents were just talking about routine job responsibilities.
"These screenshots might just be the first “proof” for Trump supporters who have decried the existence of a subversive “deep state” working to bring down Trump’s presidency for months. Somehow, the individuals present in this chat were aware of both the timing and identity of the Special Prosecutor before he was announced, and seemed to provide the information used in the stories about Flynn that surfaced on Thursday," concludes the Third Estate Newsgroup report.
To emphasize, we cannot independently confirm the legitimacy of these messages and do not hold them up as evidence of a "deep state" conspiracy, but the content is intriguing nonetheless, and we leave it to our readers to decide their authenticity.
