[Ed. – Conservative Treehouse’s sundance has done a great job of analysis on this, and is probably right about the two identities referenced in this post. (For one of them, you’ll need to go to the link at the top of the article, which takes you to an earlier post dealing separately with that CHS.) No surprises here, but it’s interesting to see where they fit. You’ll remember the CHS named below as the one-time boyfriend of Maria Butina. The activities sundance refers to as identifying are, indeed, things Byrne spoke of doing — odd as it was — for the FBI/DOJ.]
Throughout the 478-page IG report on FBI FISA misconduct there are several mentions of Confidential Human Sources (CHSs) who were either officially “tasked” or unofficially involved in the 2016 FBI investigation of the Trump campaign.
Continuing from yesterday…. we turn to page #338. This one is key …
Keep in mind, the issues around this specific source was the final straw for Inspector General Horowitz to decide to do the breakout report on FBI standards and practices for the use of confidential human sources.
The source is Patrick Byrne.
