I have to give it to Senator Chuck Grassley, he is a man of integrity, and he has been demanding answers from the FBI on the “fake dossier” on Trump for quite awhile now. He is now asking DAG Rod Rosenstein for updates on three active investigations into acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
They are as follows:
- The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General is examining his failure to recuse himself from the Clinton investigation due to his political relationship with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. McAuliffe had been given money by Clinton to give to McCabe’s wife for her political campaign.
- The Office of Special Counsel is investigating allegations that he violated the Hatch Act by engaging in political campaign activities.
- He also is reportedly the subject of a pending Equal Employment Opportunity complaint by a female FBI agent for sex discrimination,” Grassley noted in the letter.
Senator Grassley is one truly honorable man President Trump and the American people have on their side. He also questioned why McCabe did not recuse himself from investigations involving Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former National Security Adviser.
Grassley is on top of this, as he pointed to reports that three FBI employees witnessed McCabe making “disparaging remarks” about Flynn. It is good to note that some of the FBI agents are speaking up against McCabe.
It is also being reported that McCabe may be the source of the Trump “fake dossier,” in the fact he may be the one who paid for it.
Grassley, the Senate Judiciary chairman, asked Rosenstein to “provide a written explanation of the steps you intend to take as Mr. McCabe’s supervisor to address the appearance of political and other conflicts of interest outlined above.”
The letter may be viewed at the following: www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/2017-06-28%20CEG%20to%20DOJ%20(McCabe%20Continuing%20Conflicts%20Follow%20Up).pdf
In the letter, Grassley says:
“ In the May 2 letter, I noted the FBI’s failure to respond to the Committee’s previous questions. However, to date, you have failed to respond. On December 14, 2016, the FBI provided the ethical and recusal protocol applied to Mr. McCabe regarding his potential conflicts of interest in ongoing and future FBI investigations. Oddly, Mr. McCabe was the approval authority for his own recusal memo. That document contains a number of redactions. The Committee requires unredacted copies of the document for its inquiry. Accordingly, please provide an unredacted copy of the attached document no later than July 12, 2017. In addition, please provide a written explanation of the steps you intend to take as Mr. McCabe’s supervisor to address the appearance of political and other conflicts of interest outlined above. I anticipate that your written reply and any responsive documents will be unclassified. Please send all unclassified material directly to the Committee. In keeping with the requirements of Executive Order 13526, if any of the responsive documents do contain classified information, please segregate all unclassified material within the classified documents, provide all unclassified information directly to the Committee, and provide a classified addendum to the Office of Senate Security. Although the Committee complies with all laws and regulations governing the handling of classified information, it is not bound, absent its prior agreement, by any handling restrictions or instructions on unclassified information unilaterally asserted by the Executive Branch. “
I have great respect for this man, and I want to thank Senator Grassley for being one lawmaker the people can trust. God bless him.
Lets talk about the fake dossier on President Trump that it appears Andrew McCabe or James Comey actually paid for. There is news that the fake spy himself is saying the dossier is fake. We know that it is, but the fact that the spy himself is admitting to that will further implicate McCabe and the FBI. The 35 page fake document, which Trump called a “failing pile of garbage,” contained so many crazy things. It would have been funny if it was not aimed at discrediting Trump.
It was a perfect setup on President Trump planned by the Clinton camp and those connected to her. We know that someone in the FBI paid for it…either McCabe or Comey. The dossier was compiled by fake spy Christopher Steele, who went into hiding the day after the dossier was published and wasn’t seen until March 7.
What is such a shame is although the dossier’s contents remain unverified, the document has re-emerged as part of the ongoing Russia investigation. This whole thing is a circus! Talk about fake!
Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, was mentioned in the dossier as being in Russia at a certain time. It has been proven he was not out of the Country at that date. He is considering suing Christopher Steele.
Cohen has made the following statement: “I believe the entire dossier to be inaccurate, and worse, completely fabricated. I applaud Aleksej Gubarev in bringing legal action against both Christopher Steele and BuzzFeed for creating and disseminating this fake dossier/information without a scintilla of fact checking. I am currently in discussions with foreign and domestic counsel to file similar actions.”
Senator Grassley again suspects Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s second in command, “could have significant influence over the ongoing investigation into allegations of collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia.”
Grassley’s aides say the Senate probe must be incredibly thorough because the unverified dossier is still being quoted and used as evidence in Washington. Thank God for Grassley. He seems to be the only one on top of this. He made the following statement, and it says it all:
“When political opposition research becomes the basis for law enforcement or intelligence efforts, it raises substantial questions about the independence of law enforcement and intelligence from politics,” wrote Grassley.
Tom Sperry from the NY Post just came out with the following report:
The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources say it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.
“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.
In September 2016, while Fusion GPS was quietly shopping the dirty dossier on Trump around Washington, its co-founder and partner Peter R. Fritsch contributed at least $1,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary For America campaign, Federal Election Commission data show. His wife also donated money to Hillary’s campaign.
Property records show that in June 2016, as Clinton allies bankrolled Fusion GPS, Fritsch bought a six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Bethesda, Md., for $2.3 million.
Fritsch did not respond to requests for comment. A lawyer for Fusion GPS said the firm’s work is confidential.
In conclusion, I think things are looking up for President Trump thanks to Senator Charles Grassley!
