‘On Friday we also learned the conduct at the Obama FBI under James Comey, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and others was much worse than we thought.
Last night author Lee Smith joined Jason Chaffetz on The Ingraham Angle on Friday night to discuss the latest developments in the Spygate scandal.
The more we learn – the more corruption is revealed at the top levels of the Obama intelligence community.
On Friday Eric Felton at Real Clear Investigations observed: “Buried in IG Report: How an FBI Team in Rome Gave Steele Highly Guarded Secrets.”
Felton points to a meeting in Rome a month before the 2016 election:’
A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers.
What’s more, Steele, the former British spy who compiled the “dossier” of conspiracy theories for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was promised $15,000 to attend the briefing by FBI agents eager to maintain his cooperation in their Trump-Russia collusion investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane.
That investigation was so closely guarded that only a handful of top officials and agents at the FBI were allowed to know about it.
The report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz details how a team of FBI agents in early October 2016 shared with Steele extensive classified materials, just weeks before the bureau cut off ties with him for leaking his own research to the media. The secrets included foreign intelligence information still considered so sensitive that the IG’s report refers to it even now only as coming from a “Friendly Foreign Government.” In fact, this is a reference to Australia. That country’s ambassador to Britain sent the United States a tip about loose talk by junior Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. The FBI has described that as the predicate for its Trump-Russia investigation.
The IG report also discloses that FBI agents knew Steele worked for Glenn Simpson, whose opposition research firm Fusion GPS was paying Steele to dig up dirt on Trump for the Clinton campaign, and that Steele informed the FBI that the “candidate” – Clinton herself – knew about Steele’s work.
According to Lee Smith, the amount of information being shared and passed back and forth between the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration was MUCH greater than we had been told:
Author Lee Smith: We have known for a long time, of course, that Steele and the Clinton Campaign was providing information to the FBI. It now appears the FBI was giving information to the Clinton campaign, as well. Was that in order to direct the FISA so that they could obtain the spy warrant?… People involved who were sharing this information with Steele including Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap.
Via The Ingraham Angle:
If HRC , Strzok, Page, Brennan, Clapper, Barry, Priestap, McCabe (oh, wait, he is already free to go) do not get held accountable soon, I am going to lose the last shred of faith I have in the US justice system.
Trump has done a lot of good things since taking office and he has been unfairly targeted, smeared and been the victim of coup after coup. However, all the good things he has done will mean nothing if those people who keep trying to overthrow our government are not locked up.
As soon as Trump is gone the inmates will run the asylum and they will be out for blood even more. The Trump admin let the social media speech cartel crush all of his supporters without so much as lifting a finger to stop them. The same thing is happening to Trump himself at the hands of the DS, will he defend himself or let out nation collapse into an all out tyranny where there is one set of rules for the communists and another for the rest of us?
I don’t know about you, but I have had enough of this BS ‘tick tock’ non sense. I am starting to think that nothing is going to happen. I don’t want this to be the case, but after 3 years, what do we have to show for all the crimes we KNOW were committed by the previous administration?
All I see are the people who helped Trump get into office bankrupted, deplatformed, indicted or in prison. Where the hell are these counter punches we keep hearing about?
