A TIMELINE OF TREASON: How the DNC and FBI Leadership Tried to Fix a Presidential Election [Updated]

For your review:

Crowd-sourcing appeal: please point out any errors or omissions in the comments, along with source links.

As an aside, this appears to be the biggest political scandal in the history of the country. Never before has an outgoing administration attempted to fix a presidential election. It's like something out of a third world country. But then, Obama always admired dictators like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

Update: For those iPad users having problems viewing the timeline, please try this link.


  1. This looks like a spreadsheet. Is there a way to download it?

    1. Just looking at the page source gives this address for the spreadsheet.

    2. doesn't allow downloads - that option was turned off by whoever uploaded the file

    3. You can just copy the sheet by hand and paste into Excel and it should work fine.

    4. Yes - copy and paste. Highlight the text and paste it into Excel. Works fine.

  2. Not sure exactly how to allow downloads, but you can probably just copy and paste it into Excel.

  3. Yes, copy and paste into Excel works. Thanks!

    When is Congress going to stop investigating and start filing charges? I am not sure who they could use for arrests as the FBI is unlikely to cooperate and sessions just sits there.

    1. Congress can't file charges.
      It's up to Sessions or an SC if one is appointed.

  10. HI Doug. Great job.

    Would suggest that you select "wrap text" in Excel so you can narrow the columns and make them all visible.

    This may or may not merit inclusion, I'll note that the NY Times did a report on the email server which underwent a lot of changes on July 23, 2015. The original headline was "Criminal Inquiry Sought in Hillary Clinton’s Use of Emali." Then it was "Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account." Now it's "Inquiry Sought in Hillary Clinton’s Use of Email."

    More background here:

    Would be interested in knowning who was really behind the complaints about the Times story.

    This person put a lot work into this. Make a contribution or be quiet.

    Also the creator of it should also be looking at Robbie Mook's first claim the DNC and Podesta were "hacked" by Russians.
    Also please add Julian Assange's assertions that DNC and Podesta weren't hacked but stolen from. And that no state actors were involved. And that DNC refused to hand over server to FBI.

    The date for the Donald Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian attorney at Trump Tower is wrong and needs to be corrected. You have it listed as 09/09/2016. It should be 06/09/2016. Look at the reference article from July 8, 2016 you list --- occurred on June 9, 2016. Very important regarding the timeline.

  16. Doug Ross,

    Please add that Assistant AG for National Security John P Carlin resigned from office the end of September and left two weeks later.

    He was responsible for approving all FISA warrant requests.

    I believe also Strzok would have served under him in the counter intelligence unit.

    Finally, at one time he was Mueller's chief of staff.

  17. Also, the reports are mid October there was second FISA warrant request that was approved.

  18. Thanks for the builds guys. I've added a bunch of the items mentioned.

    Keep 'em coming.

    The inability by some to open this is undoubtedly caused by "BOOGER" (OK - Blogger). I have had numerous problems with Booger's selective access. I have notified many of my daily visited blogs and most already knew of Booger doing this. A few changed and the problems ceased.

    However, I use both Mozilla Firefox and Pale Moon and whenever I have a problem with one I go to the other to see what the problem is. I had my usual hang-ups and unnecessary delay while opening this posting as I always do with Mozilla opening most everything on this site because of Booger. But, it finally opened.

    With Pale Moon it would not initially open. I had to click the "Try Again" button and it finally opened.

    Makes me wonder why Booger does this. Can it be that their tracking a person's Internet address takes a little more time before they allow access to an "undesirable" posting?

    Hillary Clinton had SAP documents on her unsecured server and the State Department knew about unsecured server as early as 2011.

    "But the biggest problem may be in a just-released email that has gotten little attention here, but plenty on the other side of the world. An email to Ms. Clinton from a close Clinton confidant late on June 8, 2011 about Sudan turns out to have explosive material in it. This message includes a detailed intelligence report from Sid Blumenthal, Hillary’s close friend, confidant and factotum, who regularly supplied her with information from his private intelligence service. His usual source was Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA senior official and veteran spy-gadfly, who conveniently died just before EmailGate became a serious problem for Hillary’s campaign."

  21. Seth Rich's death should be in the timeline. As the one who most likely hacked the DNC server, his coming forward would have destroyed the "insurance policy".

  27. According to Tablet, the Reid letter to Comey was on August 29 (or it may be a separate letter from the Carter Page letter you ID'd):

    Tablet says Reid claimed that the threat of Russian interference "is more extensive than is widely known and may include the intent to falsify official election results."

    There's also this from Tablet:

    "By August 2016 the CIA had verified the key finding of the dossier to the point that, as The Washington Post revealed, it was “having ‘eyes only’ top secret meetings with Obama about it.”"

    That's stronger than an implication in your 8/10/16 entry, but ,,, I don't think the Tablet post has a link to WashPost, and I couldn't find a related article in a search at WashPost's website.

    References to the Clinton e-mails being "hacked" or "stolen" are incorrect, as HOW those e-mails were acquired for public distribution is still a matter for conjecture.

    The technological evidence strongly infers it was a physical impossibility those e-mails were hacked, due to the time required to download from the hacked source. This impossibility indicates the acquisition or release of Clinton e-mails may have been an "inside job" by a tech source inside the Clinton loop, with the likely source being the late Seth Rich!

    As there is conflicting evidence or lack of definitive proof, the use in the 3/19/16 and 7/22/16 of "hackers" or stolen e-mails; inferring definitively that "outside sources"---hackers or thieves---acted to secure/release those e-mails, is incorrect!

  33. Farrier11:40 AM

    Doug Ross--Your timeline is off about when Crowdstrike filed its final report on the alleged hack. Frankly I think Crowdstrike took everything and gave it to Comey on a thumbdrive. It is dated JUNE 15, 2016. Crowdstrike did nothing to stop any kind of alleged hack for nearly 40 days, just watching data flow out of the network. That was an admission against Crowdstrike's own interests as not containing a hack by disconnecting compromised machines from the Internet is not following Best Practices when responding to a hack.

    09/15/16 FISA Court approves FBI request for surveillance of Trump campaign based upon Russian "Dossier" DC

  38. Anonymous8:46 PM

    Hi Doug, great work! Thanks so much. Here are a couple of events for you to consider:

    (1) Deputy AG Sally Yates presented the first attempt to obtain a FISA warrant in Early Summer 2016, and this was rejected by the FISA judge who suspected that the DOJ was not being candid as to the real reason to monitor communications between a server in Trump Tower and foreign banks. Source: Ed Klein's book The Plot to Destroy Trump, page 474

    (2) The DOJ, FBI and NSA teams went back to a FISA judge on Oct 15, 2016, armed with surveillance data they had obtained through FISA Section 702, where they had (illegally) unmasked Trump associates, including Carter Page. where they charged that Page was acting as a Trump emissary to the Kremlin. The judge did not catch on to the defects in the application to the court and he granted the warrants Source: Ed Klein's book The Plot to Destroy Trump, page 928

    Excellent work!

  41. You left out some important stuff esp 5/3/2017 Comey testimony Senate

    5 3 2017 @ .37 mins into May 3 2017 Senate interviews Comey. Feinstein asks for justification of the re-opening of the clinton email investigation as was done by Comey on 10/28 after his staff told him (on 10/27) about the emails on Weiner laptop.(NYPD had searched the computer re Weiner case)

    5/3/2017 senate testimony video CSPAN:

    According to Comey there are "thousands", (at other points in his testimony Refers to"hundreds and thousands" and "thousands at thousands") which are pertinent to the investigation. Because there are so many he is convinced that a review cannot be completed prior to the election. Now he renders his dramatic 2Door metaphor : his has two options door 1 Conceal and door 2 Speak

    Being honorable he chooses speak despite the thought of influencing the election makes him nauseous.

    [Also in his answer to Sen F he mentions getting a search warrant 3 times. In her response she says there was no search warrant issued(?]

    So his justification for re-opening is the volume of emails. FBI subsequently issues a correction his numbers as he vastly overstated them. This undermines his whole reason.

    Miraculously working 24/7 his heroic staff completes the work before the election and he again closes the investigation on Nov 6.

    5/9/2017 I believe the errors were revealed earlier but the official letter from FBI is 5/9, the same day as Comey fired.

    The experts examined the DNC server metadata and determined that the entire DNC catalog was DOWNLOADED IN 87 SECONDS. They said no internet connection on the planet has/had that kind of speed.

    This means 80% of the Russian Narrative is a steaming pile of crap. The other 20% is the bogus FOIA warrant.

    That said, McCabe would have fixed the case for free. Or in hopes of becoming the next FBI Director at the new Seth Rich Memorial Justice Building.

The meeting was to be in the baggage claim with a man who would be reading the Financial Times [Pink Paper] Kramer returned morning of the 29th to Dulles. McCain went on December 9th to Comey. Comey already had a copy. McCain was also involved with Wood on Ukraine. It appears to me that there may be a connection to Vicky Nuland and other neocons. How that plays in the total of the mess is not clear but it is there. Nuland now works at Albright.

The reference posts about the sextape orgy troll can be found here That is possibly first public specific details of the "salacious" nature.
    It is extremely important to note that the original troll occurred prior to Jeb Bush calling it quits on 2/20/2016. (they claim Jan2016)

    There is also an error that should be corrected
    The 14 hour White House Meeting with Simpson's wife took place on the 19th of April 2016, not the 9th.

    Another rumor is Rogers also secretly contacted Trump right before Manafort was canned, If true that might be the earliest date that Trump became aware of a secret dossier plot and the liability Manafort carried.

    Thus the area around 8/24/16 is critical to establishing a greater corruption scandal, because not only does Reid send Comey a letter regarding Russia, but John Podesta also is on record visiting Fusion GPS in this time period.

    Tony Podesta and Manafort had worked together on Ukraine stuff and John was up to his neck with the Russians through Joule Unlimited. Thus adding and pinning down the date for John Podesta's visit to Fusion GPS is critical. All the Dem dirty tricksters were acting in collusion. I'll try to send a link.

    “The mainstream media has seized upon the FISA-approval process to refute Trump’s allegation, stating that the president does not approve FISA applications and therefore that Trump is not only wrong, but stupid and ignorant. This conveniently ignores the fact that the previous attorney general, Loretta Lynch, could have ordered the surveillance either at Obama’s explicit direction, or, more likely, with his tacit approval.”

    “It is a matter of public record that in his final days, Obama relaxed longstanding National Security Agency rules so intelligence could be widely shared within the government before applying privacy protections. What was the purpose of this order if not to assist government employees hostile to the incoming administration in leaking material that portrayed Trump in a negative light?"

    “the Obama administration had a history of improperly using FISA-authorized surveillance on their domestic political enemies.”

    Documents Reveal Loretta Lynch Used Alias Email Account In Tarmac Meeting Communications - 8/7/17
    “New documents disclosed to the American Center for Law and Justice and Judicial Watch show that while she was Attorney General, Loretta Lynch used an email account with an alias name to conduct official government business.

    Was Obama for America ("OFA") hacked, too? Did OFA make an insurance claim for such a hack?

    OFA paid Perkins Coie (i) a bunch of money in April of 2016, followed by (ii) multiple checks adding up to over $700,000 on September 29, 2016. What has not been reported is that also on September 29, 2016, Obama for America received a $500,000 insurance payment.

    OFA's FEC records show that along with the April and September payments to Perkins Coie, OFA also spent a lot of $$ on IT support. The timing and payees suggests that when the DNC began its hack investigation (guided by Perkins Coie), perhaps OFA did the same - also relying upon Perkins Coie. If so, the law firm and IT vendors continued working on or monitoring it while the whole Wikileaks thing was going on, and allowed their monthly bills to pile while OFA sought coverage from its insurer. Then the insurance money arrived on September 29, and OFA caught up on its bills. Just a theory, but one based on publicly-available FEC records ...

    Nice job. But I can't help thinking that this is the job of the American media. To root out corruption, even if it's Democrats. The media lose. The bloggers and objective conservative sites win. And America wins when light is shone into dark places.

  82. Adding to the timeline:

    Mark Levin exposed this, a series of news articles, to the public on March 5th or sooner:

    1/4/18 - Judicial Watch receives confirmation from head of FBI's FOIA department that all 7 of Comey memos regarding conversations with Trump, some of which he leaked to the NYT via a friend after he was fired, were deemed to be Classified. Date of leak is approx. 6/15/17.

    09/15/16 - "Russian contact Boris Epshteyn" is inaccurate.

    I don't know if Mr. Epshteyn still holds Russian citizenship, but he's almost certainly an American by now. He's been here since he was about eleven years old.

    Perhaps "Russian-American", "American of Russian descent", "Russian-born American"
    or just plain "American".

    "Epshteyn was born in 1982 in Moscow, Soviet Union, the son of Anna Shulkina and Aleksandr Epshteyn. His family is Russian Jewish.[2] In 1993, he immigrated with his family to Plainsboro Township, New Jersey."

    Ironically, VodkaGate (vodka=little water) will turn out to be much bigger than WaterGate.

    Uranium One, nine-figure donations to the CGI, Bill's outlandish speaking fees, and the fictional Steele dossier are the real Vodkagate.

    1/5/18 - NSA Director Mike Rogers announces to staff his intention to resign. This would free him up to testify in any future investigations.

    Finally found that Isikoff article

  89. " How the DNC and FBI Leadership Tried to Fix a Presidential Election [Updated]"

    Thank you for your tireless work. You are a true patriot in a land of traitors and their defenders.

    I would title this, "How the Clinton Campaign, DNC and FBI Leadership Tried to Fix a Presidential Election [Updated]"

    Billary is the chieftist of traitors.

    Hi Doug two MASSIVE items for your timeline...both re Robert Mueller.

    APRIL 25, 2017: Rod Rosenstein is approved by the Senate. 94-6. Nominated by Trump.

    MAY 9, 2017: after only two weeks on the job...Rod Rosenstein recommends the firing of James Comey, FBI Director.

    MAY 16, 2017: Mueller comes to the White House and meets privately with Trump. The MSM simply report Mueller came to "interview for the vacant FBI Director position" after Comey was fired. Excuse me? Mueller had served his Term Limits for this job -

    Mueller knows that. Trump knows that...this meeting was NOT ABOUT the vacant FBI Director position.

    Between the 8/10/16 Post Story and this 8/15/16 NYT Manafort piece...Mike Rogers secretly contacts Trump and tips him off about the wiretapping and dossier and secret FISA warrant on Manafort's phone(since 2014) and the Trump Campaign moles. http://www

    8/14/16 Trump leaks the facts of Paul Manafort’s criminality to the New York Times and then promptly fires him.

    By using their connections, power, and influence the Clinton Crime Syndicate conspired to take down good people and America. Instead, they exposed those we thought as good, to be bad. Clintons are so evil they were able to turn their connections into accomplices at the highest levels of government. Good thing the media are in bed with the Clintons or this could get ugly.

  93. Two things I believe should be added to the timeline which I feel implicates Obama irritating the Russians. 1. We overstayed the short term nature of NATO maneuvers 19Jan2017 in response to Russia's grab of Crimea inflaming the irritation as the election was nearing. 2. Obama kicks the Russians 30Dec2017 out because of hacking.

    There are probably better validating sites for these observations, but for me, they were the most critical component of Obama leaving one horrific mess to deal with.

    I will have trouble believing they will go after the real criminals until I see that obozo, the hildebeast, lynche, holder, and their closest aides suddenly go "on vacation" to non-extradition countries.

    Excellent work, thank you.

  96. Fabulous timeline. I tried to find the Oct 26, 2017 change in NSA policy to stop all about queries for the FISC and didn't see it. I think this is important to add as you do reference the article that speaks to this:

    In addition, what is on p. 83 referenced in the above should be included: Pg 83. “FBI gave raw Section 702–acquired information to a private entity that was not a federal agency and whose personnel were not sufficiently supervised by a federal agency for compliance minimization procedures.”

    You are missing the timeline when Papadopoulos talked to the Aussies ( prior to first denied FISA warrant ) and when the Aussies talked to the US (after first denied FISA warrant).

    Here are a few things I think could/should be added to the timeline:

    - On June 29 2016, 'eMcMullin' registers a domain,, for 'Trump Orgainzation' (note mispelling) in Florida. This is the server--continually misreported as being in Trump Tower but actually located at a datacenter in Pennsylvania--that supposedly contacted Alfa Bank in Russia. The alleged communication between the two seems to have been a crucial component of the successful FISA warrant application in October. There is substantial evidence that the DNS logs adduced therein were falsified. (Additionally, some have speculated that the registering agent is connected to NeverTrumper CIA agent/spoiler candidate Evan McMullin.)

    - On July 6 2016, 'Guccifer 2.0,' after releasing files he supposedly got by hacking the DNC computers, claims to be working with Trump. All evidence points to Guccifer 2.0's being a creation of the DNC. A comprehensive resource on Guccifer 2.0 is at

    - On July 26 2016, Edward Snowden dismisses the idea that Russia hacked the DNC, noting that if that were the case the NSA would have clear evidence.

    - On October 5 2016, Russian Yevgeniy Nikulin is arrested in Prague for hacking into US-based companies LinkedIn and Dropbox.

    - On October 21 2016, President Barack Obama says it's "impossible to hack the election," dismissing Donald Trump's suggesting such a possibility.

    - On October 31 2016, at 6:44 PM, John Podesta tweets that computer scientists discovered Trump's 'covert server.'

    - On November 14 2016, according to Yevgeniy Nikulin, the FBI tried to bribe him into confessing to hacking the DNC servers on behalf of Donald Trump, offering him refuge in the United States and millions of dollars. (I seem to remember that Guccifer--the first one--also alleged that the FBI bribed him to confess to the DNC hack, but can't find the source.)

    - On November 16 2016, the United States formally requests extradition of Nikulin from the Czech Republic.

    - By November 24 2016, mainstream news organizations are reporting allegations that Nikulin is at the center of Russia's interference in the election.

    - On December 13 2016, in an appearance on The Daily Show, President Barack Obama states that "Russia did not hack the election."

    - On March 9 2017, CNN reports that the FBI is still investigating the Trump server-Alfa bank connection.

    - On March 9 2017, the contact information for is changed to ''.

    I have read the WP article you linked to and even after additional research can not find any verification that Papadopoulos worked at State Dept. Even his ridiculously inflated LinkedIn profile doesn’t claim that he did.

    If you are still updating this spreadsheet could you put a date for the last update so we know there are changes made?
