The FBI under former Director James Comey did everything in its power to stop Donald Trump from becoming president.
Comey refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information… and even stacked his investigations with Clinton supporters.
Now it looks like Comey may have committed a crime in his witch hunt against Trump.
And it all comes down to three little words.
You see, FBI internal guidelines clearly state that only “documented and verified” information may be used in applications for secret surveillance warrants against Americans.
And there’s a very good reason for that.
This guideline is meant to prevent the FBI from presenting fraudulent evidence to obtain illegal warrants against U.S. citizens.
But Comey broke the guideline… and under his leadership, the FBI knowingly offered fraudulent evidence to get a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Trump’s 2016 campaign.
The information wasn’t “documented and verified,” and Comey knew it.
Democrats and the FBI are admitting they relied on the infamous “Trump Dossier” to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign and former adviser Carter Page.
But the dossier was nothing more than a hit piece funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and both the FBI and Comey were well aware of that.
The dossier was not “documented and verified” and turned out to be full of lies. That means that Comey and the FBI presented fraudulent evidence to a federal court and oversaw an illegal spying operation targeting Americans.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, California Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, pointed out the inconsistency between the FBI’s guidelines and its reliance on the dossier last week in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In his letter to Sessions, Nunes suggested that the use of the unverified Steele dossier was a “clear violation of FBI protocols” under Comey’s watch.
Nunes also suggested that U.S. officials may have broken the law by using the dossier in the FISA applications, the first of which was granted against Page on October 21, 2016.
What’s scary is that Democrats aren’t denying any of the allegations… and Department of Justice officials have even ADMITTED to using unverified information to fraudulently obtain a warrant.
Nunes said that FBI and DOJ officials “have confirmed to the Committee that unverified information from the Steele dossier comprised an essential part of the FISA applications related to Carter Page.”
So did Comey break the law? Will the Justice Department have the backbone to haul him back to Washington and make him answer for his alleged crimes?
He may be in a world of trouble. And it may all come down to three simple words.
