Did Stefan Halper attempt to recruit Trump campaign officials as sources? And did he have the FBI (or another agency’s) green light to do so? Grassley’s letter raises these questions, and more.
The recent inspector general report revealed that the Crossfire Hurricane team and Department of Justice and FBI leaders fell for many of the false Russia collusion narratives the press pushed.
DOJ official Bruce Ohr called a meeting of several federal agencies to discuss ‘working with’ a Russian oligarch because of his belief, premised on the unverified Steele dossier, that Trump was corrupt.
Today is the deadline Judge Rosemary Collyer set for the government to inform the FISA court of how it will stop lying to obtain secret surveillance orders. The court needs to do much more.
Now that we know Stefan Halper wasn’t a mere fellow dinner guest at the gathering but was instead sitting abreast the table at his own college, it screams ‘set up.’
The IG’s report shows FBI agents intentionally excluded derogatory information to maintain the apparent credibility of the sources they used to obtain the power to secretly surveil U.S. citizens.
As bad as the IG’s findings were, the details in its report suggest worse is coming when U.S. Attorney John Durham concludes his investigation into the Russia collusion hoax.
The report established that the special counsel’s office was complicit in the FISA abuse, the probe was a witch hunt, and its report was a cover-up for systematic government malfeasance.
Much has been missed, including one significant misrepresentation contained in all four of the Carter Page FISA applications—an inaccuracy even the IG’s team overlooked.
Rep. Devin Nunes succeeded in exposing numerous problems with FISA applications, later confirmed by Inspector General Michael Horowitz. For this, he was slimed.
Perhaps this wasn’t actually the most statistically improbable perfect storm of innocent oversights and clerical errors, all of which worked against Carter Page.
The IG report concluded that several of Comey’s statements were inconsistent with statements from other federal officials, as well as evidence gathered as part of the FISA investigation.
Horowitz told lawmakers that his team did not find that there was absolutely no bias impacting the FBI’s FISA warrant applications to spy on Trump campaign.
Johnson and Grassley gave the FBI a Dec. 9 deadline to meet their demands to hand over information related to a cyberattack on the DNC.
“Had the public known what the FBI knew at that time, it’s hard to imagine public support for continuing the investigation, much less the appointment of a special counsel four months later,” says Sen. Ron Johnson.
Two passages in Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision, separated by scores of pages in the tedious 99-page opinion, make clear that the outcome was a forgone conclusion.
Following the inspector general’s FISA report that proved nearly every sentence wrong in Rep. Adam Schiff’s last high-profile report, Schiff’s work should be deemed worthless.
‘Far too many in the FBI and DOJ are willing to hide evidence, falsify documents and make up crimes to achieve their objectives.’
The DOJ IG interviewed more than 100 witnesses about what happened behind-the-scenes of the Crossfire Hurricane operation, but the details were a little fuzzy for some key players involved.
