Investigators are closing in on James Comey and the FBI for their lawless conduct during the 2016 Presidential election.
The cover up surrounding the Bureau’s efforts to bring down Donald Trump is unraveling on a daily basis.
And what the FBI hid from Donald Trump about Hillary Clinton will leave your jaw on the ground.
The watershed moment for the Russia investigation was a January 2017 story by CNN that then-FBI Director James Comey had briefed President-elect Donald Trump on the existence of a dossier where the Russians claimed they had “kompromat” – compromising information – on him.
Comey briefed Trump specifically on the allegation that during a 2013 visit to Moscow for the Miss Universe Pageant, Trump had hired prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed that he believed Barack and Michelle Obama were going to sleep in.
The dossier claimed the Russians had video of this incident.
Nearly a year later, the American people learned that Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee hired foreign spy, Christopher Steele, to collude with the Russians and put the dossier together.
That was bad enough.
But then the FBI released a two-page summary of Comey’s briefing to Trump. In this memo, it showed that Comey never told Trump during the briefing that Clinton and the DNC paid for the dossier.
The memo reports that Comey described Steele as a foreign intelligence operative working on behalf of “private clients.”
“The source is an executive of a private business intelligence firm and a former employee of a friendly intelligence service who has been compensated for previous reporting over the past three years. The source maintains and collects information from a layered network of identified and unidentified subsources, some of which has been corroborated in the past. The source collected this information on behalf of private clients and was not compensated for it by the FBI,” the memo read.
Comey kept Clinton and the DNC’s role in funding the dossier secret from Trump because of how he and his allies were planning to make use of the briefing.
Comey only briefed Trump on the dossier for the sole purpose of creating a news pretext that the briefing had occurred.
Once CNN reported on the briefing, Buzzfeed then published the Steele dossier in its entirety and the collusion fever took hold in the fake news media.
Had Comey told Trump that Hillary and her political allies had paid for the dossier, Trump would have responded to these stories by telling the people the truth about the dossier – that it was fake news paid for by his political opponents.
The collusion storyline – and the subsequent Mueller investigation – never would have gotten off the ground had this truth been known to the public.
That’s the real scandal that needs to be investigated.
