A new bombshell report reveals that the FBI may have had a mole embedded in the Trump campaign.
In an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Kimberly Strassel unpacked some stunning developments in the battle between the Department of Justice and House Intelligence Committee members.
House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, D-Calif., and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., received a classified briefing at the DOJ on Thursday, viewing classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI probe of the Trump campaign.
According to Strassels Wall Street Journal piece:
The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.
House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteins response was to double downaccusing the House of extortion and delivering a speech in which he claimed that declining to open the FBIs files to review is a constitutional duty. Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook argumentsthat revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in loss of human lives.
This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.
Nunes could not view the information because it apparently could risk lives by potentially exposing the source, a U.S. citizen who has provided intelligence to the CIA and FBI, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough, Strassel noted. Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.
I believe I know the name of the informant, but my intelligence sources did not provide it to me and refuse to confirm it, Strassel wrote. It would therefore be irresponsible to publish it.
But what is clear is that weve barely scratched the surface of the FBIs 2016 behavior, and the country will never get the straight story until President Trump moves to declassify everything possible, she concluded. Its time to rip off the Band-Aid.
Sessions is the spy.
The curtains are about to be drawn back and it will be a whole new world.
Imagine how much Trump would have won by in an honest election.
If he isn’t, he acts like one.
What a mess this country is in.
It’s not okay to watch terrorist-supporting mosques, but it’s okay to spy on a patriotic political campaign. The far-left disgusts me. I pray that we will be able to both protect freedom and avoid a second Civil War, but I am not optimistic.
Obama used Executive Branch departments to place a spy within the Trump campaign to thwart the choice of the United States electorate.
Treasonous misuse of government.
So what are the laws on entrapment..............assume nothing done threw entrapment can be entered into a court case as evidence
clean house this should be enough to fire Rosenstein...
So, the Clinton campaign colluded with 99 percent of the media, the 0bama administration unleashed the might of the federal government to defeat Trump and get her elected, she had well over $1 BILLION, and she still couldn’t win. No wonder she, the media, and the Deep State are so angry. They convinced themselves that the voters would just buy into whatever they said, and would elect her in a landslide. That’s why the same bunch hate about 64 MILLION Americans.
Rush had early heads-up on this yesterday.
If there was an FBI mole inside the Trump campaign, I'm going to put three names out there as possibilities (based on my estimated order of likelihood):
1. Paul Manafort
2. Michael Cohen
3. Jared Kushner
Anyone suggesting who the mole may be?
Another thread suggests it is Stefan Halper.
Bush League Republican and New World Order/Deep State operative
It should be.
Interesting........laws on entrapment https://www.justice.gov/usam/criminal-resource-manual-645-entrapment-elements
“Entrapment is a complete defense to a criminal charge, on the theory that “Government agents may not originate a criminal design, implant in an innocent person’s mind the disposition to commit a criminal act, and then induce commission of the crime so that the Government may prosecute.” Jacobson v. United States, 503 U.S. 540, 548 (1992). A valid entrapment defense has two related elements: (1) government inducement of the crime, and (2) the defendant’s lack of predisposition to engage in the criminal conduct. Mathews v. United States, 485 U.S. 58, 63 (1988). Of the two elements, predisposition is by far the more important.””
That appears to be the consensus.
“clean house this should be enough to fire Rosenstein...”
It appears they’ve had enough to fire Rod for some time. But if as I’ve surmised Rod has been flipped, the Kabuki theater is about to end and the shite is about to hit the fan.
Strap in FRiends; this will be a fight to the finish and the Patriots are mounting a counterattack against the American-based Stasi.
Pray for this Republic.
