In early September of 2016, Jeh Johnson, Homeland security secretary, James Comey, then-FBI director, and Lisa Monaco, Homeland security adviser, arrived on Capitol Hill in a caravan of black SUVs for a meeting with 12 key members of Congress, including the leadership of both parties. 
It was the black caravan of The Secret Team!
The Secret Team, or ST, is a phrase coined by the late Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty in 1973, alleging a covert alliance between the United States’ military, intelligence, and private sectors to influence political decisions.  Especially did Prouty, in his book of the same name (The Secret Team), focus upon how the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had metastasized since 1947 from its original subordinate position into an octopus whose tentacles are most everywhere.
The Secret Team exited their caravan vehicles and proceeded into the meeting with the 12 key members of Congress. Reportedly present was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who voiced skepticism about the Secret Team’s claim that the Russians were seeking to undermine the 2016 presidential election. 
However key Democrats at the meeting were stunned. Later, on September 22nd, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Adam B. Schiff issued a statement making clear that they had learned from the Secret Team that Russia was directing a campaign to undermine the election! 
By late September, U.S. spy agencies, including the vaunted Coast Guard Intelligence (CGI), had reached “unanimous agreement” that a Russian operation directed by Vladimir Putin was trying to undermine the 2016 election. 
These allegations come from a dramatic report by The Washington Post which exploded onto the scene yesterday morning. The report is lengthy, and as worthy of parsing as the James Comey testimony of June 8, 2017.
The New Moon timing of the Post‘s report is significant. In a tweet issued before noon on June 22nd, President Donald Trump had asked, “By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn’t they stop them?”  Why didn’t Barack Obama do anything about it? The response came within 24 hours from The Washington Post: Obama was undergoing a “secret struggle” reported the Post. Ultimately, “Cyber weapons” were reportedly planted in Russia’s infrastructure, “the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated if the United States found itself in an escalating exchange with Moscow”!
