ANOTHER FBI SCANDAL, FBI HAD 3 VERSIONS OF FBI SO-CALLED RUSSIAN DOSSIER …
Bombshell from by John Solomon at The Hill:
Was the FBI using circular information flows to create the case of collusion against Trump? It sure looks that way and they were very well aware of it.
“The pattern is so troubling that one investigator said this to me: “The dossier and its related dirt was on a circular flight path aboard a courier service called ‘Air Clinton,’ and the FBI kept signing for the packages.”
Like dandelions in an untreated lawn, the now infamous Russian dossier apparently multiplied in numbers — and emissaries delivering it to the FBI — the closer Donald Trump got to the White House.
We know from public testimony that dossier author and former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele shared his findings with the FBI in summer and fall 2016 before he was terminated as a confidential source for inappropriate media contacts.
And we learned that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) provided a copy to the FBI after the November 2016 election — out of a sense of duty, his office says.
Now, memos the FBI is turning over to Congress show the bureau possessed at least three versions of the dossier and its mostly unverified allegations of collusion.
Each arrived from a different messenger: McCain, Mother Jones reporter David Corn, Fusion GPS founder (and Steele boss) Glenn Simpson.
That revelation is in an email that disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok wrote to FBI executives around the time BuzzFeed published a version of the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.
“Our internal system is blocking the site,” Strzok wrote of the document posted on BuzzFeed. “I have the PDF via iPhone but it’s 25.6MB. Comparing now. The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson.)”
The significance of Strzok’s email is obvious to investigators who reviewed it in recent days. The FBI is supposed to be immune to manipulation by circular information flows, especially with sensitive investigations such as evaluating whether a foreign power tampered with an American election.
Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Eviscerates Lying, Obstructionist FBI Agent Peter Strzok on Dossier Lies (VIDEO)
AMONG THE CIRCUS, THERE WAS SOME ASTONISHING THINGS THAT WERE MADE EVIDENT … STRZOK WAS BIAS AND ACTED ON IT.
Watch below, as Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) destroys FBI agent Peter Strzok. Earlier in the day Strzok had refused to answer Gowdy’s questions on the advise of FBI attorneys. Then finally, after the House committee had returned and Strzok was told he could answer such questions, this smug little SOB, who is paid by tax payers and works for us, provided a snotty, wise ass answer that was a non-answer and stated he couldn’t remember. That’s when Rep. Gowdy took Strzok a part piece by piece and showed Strzok for the bias liar that he is.
Then as what happened all day, when the GOP got close into nailing Strzok, the Democrats on the committee tried to obstruct and confuse the hearing.
Inspector General Report House Hearing: OGR Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy Shreds Former FBI Director Comey in his Opening Statement … “We Can’t Survive with a Justice System We Don’t Trust” (VIDEO)
REP. TREY GOWDY SHREDS COMEY IN OPENING STATEMENT WITH HIS NUMEROUS ACTS OF BIAS …
During today’s House Oversight and Government Reform Hearing dealing with the IG’s Hillary Clinton email report, Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy could not have said it any better as to why this hearing meant so much. This is bigger than Hillary Clinton and her partisan political games and illegal email server, destroying evidence and making secret documents easily accessible to hacking. This is about an out of control rouge FBI and DOJ where the very people at the top in decision making positions acting in such a bias manner, as to take down a candidate and potentially alter the outcome of a presidential election.
As Gowdy stated, It depends on you, the People, having confidence in the individuals who are empowered to enforce the law. Never lower your expectations of those entrusted with upholding the rule of law. Rep. Gowdy ended his opening statement by saying, “We can survive with politicians we don’t trust. We Can’t Survive with a Justice System We Don’t Trust.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz Demands Answers from IG Horowitz at Judiciary Hearing … Asks IG What the Resistance Movement Is (VIDEO)
WHY THE DIFFERENT TREATMENT … WHY DON’T WE KNOW WHO THE UNNAMED INDIVIDUALS ARE IN THE IG REPORT?
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) nailed it at today’s House Judiciary Hearing with IG Michael Horowitz discussing the IG report on Hillary Clinton’s server/email scandal. First Rep. Gaetz asked if Horowitz was familiar with the “Resistance” movement and if he realized it meant resisting President Trump. Then he asked the name of Attorney #2 was? He presented Horowitz with the following three situations and then asked, don’t you find that a “bizarre coincidence?” Gaetz stated to Horowitz, “So you have Peter Strzok who goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe. You have Lisa Page who goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe. Then you have Attorney #2 who similary goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe.” Rep. Gaetz asked if took that as odd.
“It seems like a very bizarre coincidence that the way people tended to end up on the Mueller probe was some association with Hillary Clinton”
IG Horowitz stated that it was strange and you would not normally put some one who investigated one side of an investigation on another investigation of the opposite side. But not when it came to those bias FBI agents under James Comey who was put of both sides against FBI policy. The IG was asked who would make such staffing decisions like this. Horowitz staed it would be FBI leadership. It would have been James Comey who was fired, or Andrew McCabe who has been referred for criminal prosecution.
YUP, NO POLITICAL BIAS HERE.
Sen. Graham (R-SC) Presses IG Horowitz Over Text Message Between FBI Lawyer Lisa Page & FBI Agent Peter Strzok (VIDEO)
SENATOR GRAHAM PRESSES IG HOROWITZ …
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pressed Inspector General Michael Horowitz during yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee about August 2016 text message exchanges between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok asking if they showed bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. Graham pointed out the many cases of bias that Horowitz was concerned about, but yet some how all of thee very concerning, problematic and bias actions by the FBI never became, “enough already.”
Sen. Graham pointed out the obvious, Page, Strzok, and other unnamed FBI individuals hated Trump and stated that they would do things to stop him. But for some unknown reason, that was not considered actions of political bias. Graham points out that you could not find Hillary Clinton guilty of a crime and “STOP HIM, meaning Donald Trump. One wonders if Hillary Clinton had to win the election for this to be true? And if that happened, God help us all.
In the end, Sen. Graham says that he is not buying that there was not bias.
Sen. Graham went on FOX News with Shannon Bream to discuss is impressions of his questioning of Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Graham just is not buying that there was no political bias in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton server issue when there is nothing but examples of bias in the IG report. As Graham states, the #2 guy at the FBI, now fired Andrew McCabe, had a meeting with Lisa Pagea and FBI Agent Peter Strzok to develop an insurance policy if candidate Donald Trump was elected, then that is abuse at the highest level and needs to be dealt with. This time I find myself agreeing with Sen. Graham 100%. As Graham ended with, what the FBI and DOJ did should scare everyone and is dangerous to our Democracy.
“If the #2 guy in the FBI had a meeting with Page and Strzok in his office to find out how to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump being elected, that is abuse of the highest level of the government,” Graham continued. “That is Watergate stuff. That’s what the FBI used to do years ago and I want to get to the bottom of it.”
However, this was the senator’s biggest takeaway.
“I learned today is that what the FBI and Department of Justice did in the Clinton email investigation is dangerous to democracy,” Graham stated. “She got away with it and they were out to get Trump and it could be somebody new next time, so we need to fix this.”
