Jimmy Dore goes over the IG Report into the origins of the investigation into the Trump Campaign. The Inspector General doesn’t have full subpoena power and doesn’t have the power to delve into CIA files and interview those involved who are part of foreign intel agencies. John Durham, who actually has such power and has opened a criminal probe into the origins issued a statement following the IG Report:
I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff. However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,”
It is rare for Durham to issue such a statement. Durham has worked under administrations of both major parties and was even appointed to investigate the CIA under the Obama administration.
The Clinton Campaign paid Fusion GPS to pay former foreign agent Christopher Steele to gather dirt on her political opponent. Steele self admittedly used contacts within Russia and even the Kremlin to do so. Steele was also a paid FBI informant during much of 2016. The Democrats in power used the FBI, CIA and the government intelligence apparatus to spy on the campaign of another political party.
The FBI used informants and members of other intelligence agencies within the “Five Eyes”—or 14 Eyes according to Snowden—nations to entrap members of the Trump Campaign.
One informant fed George Papadopoulos vague information about Clinton’s emails and then used another informant later to then ask if Papadopoulos had heard anything about the Clinton emails.
The lawyer from Russia who was a part of the infamous Trump Tower meeting in the summer of 2016? She had worked with Fusion GPS for years and even met with the head of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, the day before and the day after the Trump Tower meeting. The same Fusion GPS the Clinton Campaign was paying to gather political dirt on her opponent—Trump. Obama’s State Department had to give her a pass to even enter the United States.
Carter Page had worked with the FBI and CIA previously and it the was FBI using him which allowed them to obtain a FISA warrant wherein which they could employ the “Two-Three Hop” rule where they could then spy on everyone within the Trump Campaign.
“When analysts think they have cause to suspect an individual, they will look at everyone that person has contacted, called the first hop away from the target. Then, in a series of exponential ripples, they look at everyone all those secondary people communicated with. And from that pool, they look at everyone those tertiary people contacted. This is called a second and a third hop.”
The Clinton Campaign used the “Pied Piper” strategy to elevate Trump because she thought he easily could be beat. Not only did she rig the Democrat primaries against Bernie Sanders but she used the state intelligence apparatus to gather an “insurance policy” on her Republican political opponent in case she lost. This was what former FBI Agent Peter Strzok mentioned in text messages:
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s] office—that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
The same Peter Strzok who opened the investigation into the Trump Campaign (The “Russia Investigation”) and also conveniently was the one who headed the investigation into the Clinton email servers. Remember it was Andrew McCabe—then Deputy FBI Director and Comey’s righthand man—who interviewed then National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and wrote that at the time he didn’t think Flynn was lying and then changed the story later.
Her campaign paid foreign entities to gather dirt on her political opponent. She never thought she’d lose. She had everything rigged in her favor and she STILL LOST.
Also: Former FBI Director Comey told Congress the FBI never independently verified the hack into the DNC servers but relied solely on the findings of a private company which was paid by the DNC for its work. The organization was headed by a former higher up in the FBI. Time Stamp at 8:28 So the actual evidence that Russia “hacked” the DNC? Diddly squat.
Also: The FBI cited a news article published in the fall of 2016 in their application for the FISA warrant. The news story turned out to be leaked and planted by the FBI themselves.
