President Trump has been saying it for a while and last week’s revelations leave no doubt – high ranking agents of the FBI fabricated the allegations that Special Counsel Mueller has built the majority of his investigation on.
The Bureau concocted the narrative that the mainstream media and Democrats have relentlessly used to undermine the President goes back to before the Presidential election in September 2016.
Now, the FBI’s narrative is coming apart at the seams rapidly. Last Wednesday, Representative Devin Nunes and the House Intel Committee Chairman won its battle with the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice over a motherload of intelligence that Rob Rod, the Deputy Attorney had steadfastly refused to hand over.
To make matters more damning, the same information the House committee had been barred from seeing had already been shared with Special Counsel Robert Mueller months ago.
From the battle with the DOJ and the FBI and the information the House Committee on Intelligence now has, some important question promise to be answered:
- Did the bureau engage in outright spying against the 2016 Trump campaign?
- If so, which seems apparent, when did the FBI’s spying begin?
- And from who did the order come from?
Bureau leadership has stuck with its story for over a year that a drunken minor Republican campaign worker named George Papadopoulos led to its counterintelligence probe. But if its investigation began before the Papadopoulos tip, then the FBI has been lying to Congress.
It is already firmly established that the FBI used the Christopher Steele authored Trump-Russia dossier that was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign. That discredited information was used by the Muller investigation to obtain FISA surveillance warrants on three separate occasions.
It has also been revealed that FBI agents approached Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska on September 2016 concerning allegations that President Trump’s campaign was colluding with the Russian government to influence the election.
When the agents sought confirmation that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was involved in allegations made in the Steele dossier, the Russian found the notion amusing. Adam Waldman, a former lawyer for Deripaska, said he “laughed but realized, despite the joviality, that they were serious. So he told them in his informed opinion the idea they were proposing was false” and that they were trying to “create something out of nothing.”
The path becomes more twisted when one realizes that the months before the election wasn’t the first time that the Deripaska had dealings with the FBI. He paid $25 million out of his own pocket in 2007 to help the Bureau track down Robert Levinson who was taken prisoner in Iran in 2007.
Who oversaw that failed Deripaska/Levinson operation? None other than FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Speaker Paul Ryan is adamant that the Intelligence Committee’s request for details on Strassel’s secret source is “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.”
In other words – the Department is fully aware that it should have turned over this information over a year ago but chose instead to conceal it.
That isn’t the only instance of Obama political appointees working against Donald Trump. The DOJ routinely “unmasked” Trump campaign officials so they could monitor their conversations and the FBI used FISA warrants against Carter Page by purposefully failing to tell the Court that its supporting information came from Trump’s opposition, the Hillary Clinton campaign.
When pressed to point the finger at Paul Manafort, Deripaska told FBI agents:
“No, I’m telling you, it’s not true. I don’t like the guy. Listen — I’d love to smear him. I’m telling you, there’s no chance that Russia is using Paul Manafort to coordinate an election.”
Lurah Ingraham observed it would be hard to “make this stuff up.” One could only wish it was fiction – the FBI colluding with a Russian billionaire to enable the Trump/Russia collusion story.
If you think things are interesting now, wait until the other shoe falls. The FBI is already in panic mode, they’ll do anything to protect themselves at this point, including besmirching President Trump’s name.
