US District Court Judge Richard Leon Confirmed That Intelligence Community Inspector General Had Possession Of Montgomery’s Recorded Testimony And Computer Hard Drives

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | December 18, 2020

FBI Director James Comey demanded that the FBI be given the source code to SCORECARD, the election-hacking application that operates on THE HAMMER surveillance supercomputer platform, as a condition of  CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis L. Montgomery’s 2015 FBI and DOJ immunity agreements, according to Montgomery.

SCORECARD is an election-hacking cyberweapon designed to monitor and engineer elections. SCORECARD is one of the HAMR exploits designed to run on THE HAMMER framework.

The American Report was the first news organization to report on SCORECARD, in an article titled “Biden Using SCORECARD and THE HAMMER To Steal Another U.S. Presidential Election — Just Like Obama And Biden Did In 2012,” published on October 31, 2020, three days before the 2020 election.

In 2003, Dennis Montgomery designed and built THE HAMMER for the Department of Defense as foreign surveillance tools to keep America safe after 9/11. THE HAMMER kept America and U.S. troops on the battlefield safe, multiple U.S. military intelligence sources told The American Report. Montgomery states that he also designed and built SCORECARD.

John Brennan and James Clapper illegally commandeered THE HAMMER on February 3, 2009, according to Montgomery. WikiLeaks confirmed the existence of HAMR (THE HAMMER) on March 7, 2017 when the organization dumped CIA Vault 7, a cache of classified documents concerning top secret CIA hacking tools.

In 2015, Montgomery, as a whistleblower, brought the information regarding THE HAMMER and SCORECARD, as well as 47 computer hard drives containing 600 million pages of illegally-harvested domestic surveillance data, to the DOJ and FBI.

Montgomery stated he also testified to the DOJ and FBI about SolarWinds.

The CIA’s charter prohibits the agency from spying on Americans inside the United States.

Montgomery was required to turn over the SCORECARD source code as part of the two immunity agreements that Mongomery received from the FBI and DOJ, according to Montgomery.

Both FBI Director Comey and FBI General Counsel James Baker in December 2015 took custody of THE HAMMER’s SCORECARD election hacking application source code, according to CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis L. Montgomery.

Senator Ron Johnson Seeks Evidence of SCORECARD and HAMMER

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) stated that he has not seen evidence of SCORECARD and HAMMER and that he seeks that evidence.

CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery’s evidence from his computer hard drives and his recorded testimony regarding SCORECARD and HAMMER were  given to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG). Montgomery states that the evidence regarding SCORECARD and HAMMER can be found not only on the hard drives but also in his recorded testimony. Senator Johnson, as Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, has subpoena power to order the ICIG to produce Montgomery’s hard drives and recorded testimony.

Senator Johnson can find the evidence he seeks with the ICIG, unless, of course, that evidence has been removed, buried, or destroyed.

Senior U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, in a legal opinion, stated that the evidence that Dennis Montgomery provided to the FBI and the DOJ is in the hands of the Intelligence Community Inspector General.

It is not known what, if anything, FBI Director James Comey did with the source code to SCORECARD. Did Comey share the source code with others, and if so, with whom? Did Director Comey brief President Trump about the existence of SCORECARD?

According to a March 3, 2018 opinion by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon in the case DENNIS MONTGOMERY, et al., Plaintiffs, v. JAMES COMEY, Defendants:

At the status conference in this case, counsel for the Government defendants represented to this Court that the “hard drives are in a secure facility with the [I]ntelligence [C]ommunity’s Office of Inspector General” and that there was “no risk” that they were “going to be destroyed anytime soon…

…Plaintiffs’ primary argument on this point is that, without preservation of the hard drives and the interview tapes, they “will lose the material evidence in this case.” Pls.’ Mot. 18. But as I have already explained, the Government has represented to this Court that there is a litigation hold preventing the destruction of either the hard drives or the interview tapes.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General from 2010 to 2018 was former FBI agent Irvin Charles “Chuck” McCullough III. McCullough, in that role, reported directly to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. McCullough was also previously employed by the NSA Inspector General’s office.

“I enjoyed a very good relationship with Jim Clapper. We got along famously” McCullough told The Hill during a December 2018 interview. McCullough initially handled the Hillary Clinton email case before he handed it over to the FBI, where the case was handled by Peter Strzok. “And so we went back to the agencies and said ‘hey is this stuff [Hillary’s private server emails] classified?’ And lo and behold, part of our sample initially was classified. We pulled more, there was more classified, and so we had a problem at that point, and that’s when I referred the entire matter over to the FBI for investigation.”

McCulllough also discussed the classified emails the ICIG’s office found on Hillary’s private server, some of which reportedly contained Special Access Program (SAP) information:

There were emails that were so classified in there that my people, and we were the IG so we had almost every clearance known to man, I had to get my people read in to certain compartments to even see these emails that were out there residing on this private server. Now, did she know that? Did she understand? I don’t know. Now you’re getting into a matter of intent. Was this just sort of sloppy and reckless? It certainly was reckless.

McCullough handed over the emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server, emails that contained top secret classified information, to Director Comey, who advised the DOJ not to prosecute Hillary.

FBI Director Comey stated during his July 5, 2016 Statement on the Investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Personal E-Mail System:

Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.

In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.

However, under the law, intent makes no difference. The full weight of the law came down on U.S. Navy submariner Machinist Mate 1st Class Kristian Saucier who took photos of classified areas of a submarine he served aboard. Saucier was found guilty and sent to prison. Hillary Clinton, however, faced no charges after Comey claimed that the FBI determined that Hillary did not act with “intent.”

Does DNI Ratcliffe Still Possess The Evidence?

The question now is, does DNI John Ratcliffe still have the evidence about THE HAMMER and SCORECARD that Montgomery turned over to the FBI or did it disappear under James Comey and ICIG McCullough?

The ICIG had previously received a whistleblower complaint information from Montgomery in 2013.

Montgomery also handed over to the FBI information regarding SolarWinds.


Foreign hackers, suspected to be working for Russia, carried out a massive cyberware campaign against the U.S. Government exploiting a vulnerability in SolarWinds software in order to hack into multiple U.S. government agencies.

According to Montgomery, the Obama Administration was well aware that weaknesses within SolarWinds products could provide hackers with access to U.S. government computer systems because, Montgomery says, he repeatedly advised them about the SolarWinds security problems.

“At least two US agencies have publicly confirmed they were compromised: The Department of Commerce and the Agriculture Department. The Department of Homeland Security’s cyber arm was also compromised,” according to CNN. “But the range of potential victims is much, much larger, raising the troubling prospect that the US military, the White House or public health agencies responding to the pandemic may have been targeted by the foreign spying, too.”

“The Energy Department and National Nuclear Security Administration, which maintains the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, have evidence that hackers accessed their networks as part of an extensive espionage operation that has affected at least half a dozen federal agencies, officials directly familiar with the matter said,” according to Politico.

“If you compromise somebody’s network for 6 months, there’s a lot of opportunity. It’s an amazing coup for the Russians — really impressive.” said James Lewis, “a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies” told CNN.

SolarWinds Network Monitoring Platform

According to Montgomery, he reported SolarWinds security flaws and suggested fixes to the FBI, CIA, DOD, and DOJ in 2009, 2010, 2014, and 2016. “All of this is well documented,” Montagomey stated.

“HAMMER first breached SolarWinds company and their technology platform on February 23, 2009 at Ft. Washington, Maryland, days after HAMMER went live,” according to Montgomery. “HAMMER has breached every version of their product over the last seven years, undetected.”

“SolarWinds current technology still has many documented flaws, easily compromised and exploited irrespective of their current problems,” Montgomery added.

Montgomery maintains that he provided information at the highest levels of the U.S. government, including to the Inspectors General of CIA, DIA, DNI, DOD, AF, DHS in a whistleblower complaint. Montgomery stated that he personally provided the information to FBI Director James Comey in electronic form and in a videotaped deposition on December 3, 2015.

“How can SolarWinds protect the U.S. government networks when the government cannot or does not protect their network?” Montgomery asked.

Montgomery testified to the FBI and DOJ in December 2015 that under the Obama Administration that SolarWinds was accessed four times in six years with HAMMER while he worked for John Brennan and James Clapper.

Montgomery testified and specifically detailed SolarWinds vulnerabilities to the FBI in his sworn and videotaped testimony in December of  2015.

Why was nothing done to correct those “vulnerabilities” as detailed to the Obama Administration and their DOJ and FBI who were in receipt of that specific information?

“How can SolarWinds protect the U.S. Government networks when they cannot even protect their network” Montgomery queried.

But the Obama Administration’s FBI and DOJ knew that.

Did the Obama Administration or former FBI Director James Comey share that information with the Trump Administration? If not, why not?

Was the Obama administration so busy fighting the incoming Trump administration with multiple coup attempts that their mission to set up President Trump took precedence over securing the nation? Or was that their intent?

CISA Director Christopher Krebs, Connected To Clapper, Claims That HAMMER And SCORECARD Are ‘Domestic Disinformation,’ Yet Admits To Senate That Some Voting Machines Transferred 2020 Election Tallies Over The Internet

On December 16, 2020, now-fired DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) Director Christopher Krebs, during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on election security and administration, dismissed reports about HAMMER and SCORECARD as domestic disinformation.

This was not Krebs’ first attempt to discredit information about SCORECARD. Before President Trump fired him, Krebs tweeted about HAMMER and SCORECARD, calling it a hoax.

Krebs’ latest attack on information about THE HAMMER and SCORECARD happened immediately after Chairman Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) skillfully forced Krebs to admit that the 2020 election voting machines were in fact connected to the internet and therefore, capable of being hacked by foreign adversaries or other bad actors.

Krebs admitted to Senator Johnson:

Some [election machines] may have modems that are typically disabled, but in certain states, I believe in Wisconsin, some are temporarily activated to transmit some counts…

…As you move out from election day, there will be tabulators that may have internet connections to transmit the vote from the precinct to the county level to the state.

“But those tabulators are connected on election day, because that’s how they transit the data to the counties and also into the unofficial…?” Senator Johnson then asked Krebs.

“In some cases, yes sir,” Krebs replied to Senator Johnson.

According to Montgomery, SCORECARD accesses the vote tally at the transfer points as the election tally enters the internet.

Minority Ranking Member Gary Peters (D-MI) appeared to have coordinated with Krebs during the hearing in order to, indirectly, paint reporting about HAMMER and SCORECARD as Russian disinformation. Senator Peters, immediately after Krebs finally admitted to Senator Johnson that voting machines are connected to the internet, asked Krebs about CISA’s “Rumor Control” page and Russia and other foreign adversaires echoing Trump team “disinformation” about election fraud, with Krebs, as if on cue, immediately responding that “THE HAMMER and SCORECARD claims that there was a CIA supercomputer and program that were flipping votes” was a “domestic disinformation campaign of a cybersecurity nature.”

It was at that point that Senator Johnson in the hearing’s most dramatic moment accused Hillary Clinton and Senator Peters of being purveyors of Russian disinformation, and of falsely claiming that derogatory information pertaining to Hunter Biden is “Russian disinformation.”

“You lied repeatedly in the press,” Senator Johnson yelled at Senator Peters.

Krebs previously worked at private contractor Obsidian Analysis with Peter O’Prey, who hired James Clapper at another private contractor, DFI. Krebs’ CISA deputy director Matt Travis also worked with O’Prey at DFI. Clapper’s Pentagon military intelligence office that oversaw THE HAMMER contracted O’Prey’s DFI division.

Montgomery created SCORECARD, an exploit that was designed to run on THE HAMMER supercomputer framework. SCORECARD was designed to covertly monitor and manipulate foreign election results for the U.S. intelligence community fighting communism around the world, Montgomery states.

According to The Whistleblower Tapes, THE HAMMER was used to steal the 2012 election in Florida.

Maria Bartiromo reported at FOX Business on December 15, 2020:

An intel source telling me President Trump did, in fact, win the election. He says that it is up to the Supreme Court to hear suits from other cases across the country to stop the clock. This follows the high court’s refusal to hear the lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, challenging results in four swing states.

CBS News Senior Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge reported:

DNI Ratcliffe leads the 17 intelligence agencies and he has access to the most highly classified information that is held by the US government.  And he told CBS News that there was foreign interference by China, Iran, and Russia in November of this year and he is anticipating a public report on those findings in January.

Dominion Voting Systems Not Secure By Design, Montgomery Told FBI

In December 2015, Montgomery told FBI and DOJ officials that Dominion Voting Systems equipment is not secure and was designed not to be secure, according to Montgomery.

SCORECARD can exploit back doors intentionally built into Dominion Voting Systems equipment, according to Montgomery.

NBC News reported in a January 10, 2020 article titled “‘Online and vulnerable’: Experts find nearly three dozen U.S. voting systems connected to internet”:

The three largest voting manufacturing companies — Election Systems & Software, Dominion Voting Systems and Hart InterCivic — have acknowledged they all put modems in some of their tabulators and scanners. The reason? So that unofficial election results can more quickly be relayed to the public. Those modems connect to cell phone networks, which, in turn, are connected to the internet.

Trump: “We will never, ever surrender”

During his first rally since the election, President Trump told a cheering crowd in Valdosta, Georgia on December 5, 2020 “we will not bend, we will not break, we will not yield, we will never give in, we will never give up, and we will never back down. We will never, ever surrender.”

“The Founding Fathers may not have known about cyberwarfare, but they certainly recognized tyranny when they saw it,” according to General Michael Flynn.

The Obama Administration had illegally taken possession of THE HAMMER and SCORECARD and were well aware that SolarWinds and the U.S. agencies that relied on SolarWinds were anything but secure.

Cyberwarfare was waged against America by domestic traitors and foreign enemies. In an undeclared act of war, these enemies attempted to not only to steal the vote, but to steal America herself.
