BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Keep All Eyes on Hakluyt Cyber – The Landing Place for Many Russia Collusion Sham Participants!
The origination of the fraudulent ‘Russia Collusion’ hoax started in the UK with British Intelligence Agencies involved in spying on President Trump’s campaign and relaying this information to Obama operatives in US Intelligence agencies. Many of these crooks and spies are now working together at entities like Hakluyt Cyber, an entity with numerous individuals related to the ‘Russia Collusion’ hoax.
On March 16, 2017, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano (Judge Nap) at FOX News wrote a piece where he claimed that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s calls [emphasis added throughout] –
Sources have told me that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s calls. The NSA has given GCHQ full 24/7 access to its computers, so GCHQ — a foreign intelligence agency that, like the NSA, operates outside our constitutional norms — has the digital versions of all electronic communications made in America in 2016, including Trump’s. So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.”
Thus, when senior American intelligence officials denied that their agencies knew about this, they were probably being truthful. Adding to this ominous scenario is the fact that three days after Trump’s inauguration, the head of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, stating that he wished to spend more time with his family.
On the same day, FOX News provided a response from the GCHQ to Judge Nap –
Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct ‘wire tapping’ against the then President Elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”
But the GCHQ’s response did not address Judge Nap’s claims. Judge Nap was not talking about “wire tapping,” but access to the surveillance information gathered by the NSA, two different things. Nevertheless the GCHQ left the impression that Judge Nap was incorrect in his assertion by totally diverting away from the extent and reach of the surveillance industry.
Two days later on March 18, 2017, in a piece at CNBC a top NSA official, Richard Ledgett, who was Deputy Director of the NSA at that time, responded to Judge Nap’s assertion, calling it “crazy” and “epically stupid” –
Richard Ledgett, deputy director of the NSA, told BBC News the idea that Britain had a hand in spying on Trump was “just crazy.”
“It belies a complete lack of understanding of how the relationship works between the intel community agencies, it completely ignores the political reality of ‘would the UK government agree to do that?’” Ledgett said.
There would be no advantage for Britain’s government in spying on Trump, given the potential cost, he said.
“It would be epically stupid,” said Ledgett, who is due to retire shortly.
Current and former NSA officials have described an acrimonious relationship between intelligence agencies and the Trump administration.
Based on what we know today, it’s very likely that Judge Nap was right!
The Guardian posted an article in April, 2017, that confirmed that the GCHQ was first aware of interactions between candidate Trump and suspected Russian agents in 2015 –
Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.
GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.
Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said.
The Guardian further reported –
According to one account, GCHQ’s then head, Robert Hannigan, passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan. The matter was deemed so sensitive it was handled at “director level”. After an initially slow start, Brennan used GCHQ information and intelligence from other partners to launch a major inter-agency investigation.
And, a final note from the Guardian article –
Britain’s MI6 spy agency played a part in intelligence sharing with the US, one source said. MI6 declined to comment. Its former chief Sir Richard Dearlove described Trump’s wiretapping claim on Thursday as “simply deeply embarrassing for Trump and the administration”.
The only possible explanation is that Trump started tweeting without understanding how the NSA-GCHQ relationship actually works,” Dearlove told Prospect magazine.
The untold part of the above news is that the meeting between Brennan and Hannigan was an oddity. Hannigan’s natural counterpart in the US government at that time was Admiral Rogers at the NSA, not Brennan, the Director of Obama’s CIA. Of course, we now know that Admiral Rogers uncovered the spying on Americans and the FISA abuse in an audit he requested related to the FISA program. If something was not on the up and up, Admiral Rogers would not be involved.
In Admiral Rogers audit noted above, in around March 2016, Rogers identified that raw intelligence was being forwarded from the US to outside contractors. Fusion GPS is suspected to be one of these contractors.
Perhaps coincidentally, Hannigan resigned a few days after Trump’s inauguration and Richard Ledgett announced his retirement from the NSA 14 days after Trump’s inauguration.
Also, unlikely as it is, Richard Ledgett now works for Hakluyt Cyber, which was founded, led and populated by former members of GCHQ. Remember, more than any other single entity, Hakluyt is the one most closely associated with the Russia collusion hoax.
It was reported by Intelligence Online in September of 2018 –
Rick Ledgett recently joined the new advisory board of Halkuyt Cyber, the specialist subsidiary of the upscale British corporate intelligence firm Hakluyt. The unit, which opened discreetly in 2015, is headed by Nicholas ‘Nick’ Bidmead. A member of the US Chamber of Commerce, Ledgett will help develop Hakluyt Cyber’s business in the US and Canada.
In June this year, Ledgett also became an advisor to the cybersecurity giant Palo Alto Networks. After retiring from the NSA in 2017, he joined the board of M&T Bank. He is also an advisor to Polaris Alpha, Peter Cannito‘s firm, which was acquired in May by the infrastructure protection giant Parsons, and to QiO Technologies, a cloud security and data mining company.
Ledgett is also a member of the Alliance for Securing Democracies (ASD), a pressure group founded in response to the hacking of the Democratic Party in 2016. Both Republican and Democratic iconic senior officials including Michael Chertoff and John Podesta, who was targeted by hackers in 2016, are members of the pressure group.
At Hakluyt Cyber, which employs a number of former interceptions staff of Five Eyes alliance member states (IOL 789), Ledgett will work with two British technical interceptions heavyweights, Iain Lobban, who headed GCHQ, Britain’s equivalent of the NSA, from 2008 to 2014, and his former number two, Andrew France. Lobban and France are also in high demand in the cyber sector. Iain Lobban is an advisor to C5 Capital, the fund established by Andre Pienaar, as well as to the cryptology start-up SQR System and Standard Chartered Bank (IOL 757), while Andy France advises Darktrace, Deep Secure, Prevalent AI, RedQ and Telstra (IOL 807, IOL 767).
Michael McFaul, Michael Morell and Former Republican Representative Mike Rogers, also are members at the Alliance for Securing Democracies. He was on President Trump’s transition team and was recommended by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Christie also reportedly recommended President Trump bring in Christopher Wray to lead the FBI.
The Washington Post declared upon Rogers’ firing –
The ouster of former congressman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) from Donald Trump’s transition team is a worrisome sign of continuing internecine battles in the GOP and the ascendancy of Trump’s personal political allies in shaping the president-elect’s agenda.
It’s not surprising but very revolting to see that the instigators and Deep State crooks involved in the Russia Collusion scandal have landed safely in some questionable entities. Hakluyt Cyber is one of these entities where both US and UK allies in the scandal now call home.
