Adam Housley reports on what he has been able to learn from three "solid" sources:
One of the claims by Powell I have looked into...the claim a location was raided in Germany with servers. I have 3 sources on this...all as solid as they come. Here is what I have found:
1.There is/was a clandestine location in Frankfurt run by CIA used to monitor/manipulate elections around globe.
2.That location did have servers & a front company as cover.
3.I cannot confirm the location was tied to U.S. elections.
4. One source says raided, 2 don't know.
So, the sources seem to be saying that Scytl was a CIA front company and they definitely confirm that the CIA in Frankfurt was manipulating elections around the world. Of the three sources, when queried regarding the "raid," one said, "I know about that--it happened." The other two said: "We don't know. whether it happened or not" Note that well. One said, "Yes, I have knowledge and it's true." The others simply said, "We don't know." Not to belabor the obvious, but that's not a denial of an event, it's a denial of knowledge about an alleged event. It's not even an expression of skepticism.
The more we hear about all this, the more it sounds like a professional intel operation. All the evidence that's been accumulating and is now being presented on the internet--how does that happen without the knowledge of key components in our IC? Especially when those IC agencies have been working with the same companies to manipulate elections around the world? Try reading this thread: Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) and the Author who created Scorecard in the Serbian team for DVS. Tell me if it doesn't smell like a professional--i.e., State run--intel operation, using sophisticated techniques to conceal the identities of operatives.
UPDATE: In case anyone is interested, here is how I see the "raid" in Germany going down. I wrote this as an email earlier. Of course I may be wrong, but to me it makes sense:
Trump/Barr come to the decision that the CIA/Scytl servers must be obtained for purposes of a national security investigation involving the election--obviously, not simply for the Trump campaign. I assume that, since manipulation of foreign elections is a very sensitive operation, for the sake of security the servers are located on a US Army facility (NOT an overt CIA facility).
Having come to the decision, Barr drafts up whatever legal process is required for the FBI to take possession of another USG agency's property--possibly against their will. The FBI will be used to take possession of the servers because they're the lead investigative agency on such matters (DIA only handles intra-military matters). Barr also arranges with the SecDef to grant the FBI base access and support and to have the servers transported by military flight to the US. From wherever they land, the servers are then taken to the FBI's forensic computer lab in Quantico--possibly by USMC vehicles, since FBI Quantico is located on a USMC base.
Trump or a trusted designee sends the paperwork to Amb/Germany with instructions to order the FBI to take possession of the described servers. The FBI agents are also given a point of contact at the Army facility in Wiesbaden--since the FBI has no authority to simply barge onto a military facility and conduct a search and seizure. The FBI is also probably told that any questions may be addressed to Barr and to nobody else--or possibly a trusted aide.
The FBI in Germany follows the instructions and orders they receive from the Ambassador and take custody of the servers. The "raid" will appear to have been led by the military, but the FBI agents will have been present throughout and will be the ones who take official possession of the servers. FBI agents from Germany also accompany the servers on board the military flight and all the way to Quantico--with the FBI agents maintaining custody the whole way.
At some point I suspect that a copy is made of all the servers--just in case. Who would have custody, I'm not sure. But not Chris Wray or Gina Haspel.
