It’s no secret that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is infested with political hacks who will protect former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at any cost.
They stopped her from being prosecuted for mishandling classified information.
FBI agents have been caught exchanging texts disparaging President Donald Trump.
And top FBI brass have signed off on Robert Mueller’s year-long, out-of-control witch hunt against Trump.
But all that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Because it now appears that the FBI possesses transcripts PROVING that Clinton tried to cheat and manipulate the 2016 presidential election.
And for months, the FBI has essentially lied about it.
A federal judge has just admitted that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) have transcripts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) hearings that will PROVE that
the bogus “Trump dossier” paid for by Hillary Clinton was used to secure illegal surveillance against the Trump campaign.
That’s right… Clinton paid for a smear piece against Trump, and then used it to manipulate the government into spying on him. And the FBI appears to be sitting on the proof.
The cover-up has gotten so bad that a government watchdog group is stepping in and demanding action.
Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the DOJ for all hearing transcripts on FISA warrants related to Trump aides Carter Page and Michael Flynn.
But it’s WHY the lawsuit was filed that matters.
The FBI had declined numerous requests to turn over the transcripts.
Basically, the FBI has acted like the transcripts don’t exist – which is patently false.
All told, there were at least FOUR attempts from Judicial Watch to obtain these records from the FBI.
What exactly was the FBI hiding?
On February 7, 2018, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes wrote a letter to Judge Rosemary M. Collyer, the presiding judge at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) requesting transcripts of “any relevant FISC hearings associated with the initial FISA application or subsequent renewals related to electronic surveillance of Carter Page.”
Just eight days later, Judge Collyer replied that the FBI and DOJ “possess most, if not all, of the responsive materials the Court might possess, and we have previously made clear to the Department, both formally and informally, that we do not object to any decision by the Executive Branch to release any such FISA materials to Congress.”
So the documents exist… and the court doesn’t care if they’re released. But the FBI is still refusing to release them.
It’s just the latest pathetic attempt to shield Clinton from any accountability for her horrifying actions.
According to a press release from Judicial Watch, “It is outrageous that the Justice Department is covering up key FISA court transcripts that would shed light on how the Clinton-DNC dossier was used to obtain surveillance of the Trump team. Frankly, President Trump should order that the DOJ and FBI release all documents about the FISA court process that was subverted by the corrupt use of the Clinton-DNC dossier.”
Let’s hope Trump does order the release of these documents. Because it’s clear the FBI won’t do it on its own.
