Once upon a time, there was the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax…
And then when that fell apart, it turned into a Ukraine-Trump-Biden story.
The Dems dropped the Russian collusion story after Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team were unable to find any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
However, the story is back in the news. Last week, it was reported that the Dems in the House were going to dredge up the old “Russian Collusion” narrative and throw it back under the public spotlight.
They are going to look into whether President Trump lied in his written answers to questions from Mueller’s team.
Democrats just can’t let the Russia hoax go.
However, there might be a reason why the Dems are digging up the fake news fossil.
In just a few short weeks, the DOJ report into the origins of the Russia probe are set to be released…
And it doesn’t look good for the Obama administration.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz conducted a lengthy investigation into how a FISA warrant was obtained to spy on the Trump campaign.
As you may recall, Trump advisor Carter Page was spied on using a FISA warrant that was obtained based on crazy allegations that were compiled in a dossier by former British Spy Christopher Steele. Steele was hired by Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Democrat National Committee to find dirt on Trump.
Did you get all that?
Basically, based on unfounded allegations from an operative paid by the DNC, the FBI began spying on the Trump campaign.
That pretty much sums up the main points.
Yesterday, the unthinkable happened: CNN actually conducted some real journalism.
I know, shocking, right?
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
They broke the story which claims that a former FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of Carter Page.
CNN reported the following:
“The finding is expected to be part of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of the FBI’s effort to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide. Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.”
“It’s unknown how significant a role the altered document played in the FBI’s investigation of Page. The alterations were significant enough to have shifted the document’s meaning and came up during a part of Horowitz’s FISA review where details were classified, according to the sources.”
That should make people like James Comey, James Clapper, and Andrew McCabe lose sleep. The Department of Justice is breathing down their neck and they know it.
It shouldn’t be long until they turn on each other and start pointing fingers at the other guy.
But the story doesn’t stop there. There are even more layers to the corruption, and it just gets juicer by the second.
Last month it was reported that Attorney General Bill Barr and Durham were recently presented with incriminating evidence while they were Italy.
The Daily Beast reported that the two were “interested in what the Italian secret service knew about Joseph Mifsud, the erstwhile professor from Malta who had allegedly promised then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign aide George Papadopoulos he could deliver Russian ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton.”
The Report continued: “The Italian justice ministry’s public records show that Mifsud had applied for police protection in Italy after disappearing from Link University, where he worked and, in doing so, had given a taped deposition to explain just why people might want to harm him. A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the Daily Beat that Barr and Durham were played the tape.”
The tables have turned; it is now the Obama administration that is under investigation.
And unlike the Trump administration, there is more evidence that points to guilt on their part.
Time is up for the Obama administration. Justice is about to be served.
