Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is tainted by partisanship and anti-Trump conspiracies.
As Americans learn more facts about the probe, it’s becoming clear that it’s nothing more than a witch hunt to get to Trump.
And Trey Gowdy just dropped a bombshell that is bad news for Mueller.
The Fusion GPS Trump-Russia dossier is at the heart of this investigation.
Critics believe the unverified document was used by the FBI to kick start the Russia investigation, which has given Mueller wide berth to dig into the Trump administration to try and manufacture grounds for impeachment.
Peter Strzok – the Trump-hating FBI agent who signed off on the investigation and is alleged to have described it as an “insurance policy” against Trump winning – may have used the phony dossier as the basis for obtaining FISA warrants against Trump campaign officials.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), during a remarkable exchange with FBI Director Christopher Wray at a hearing Thursday, suggested that Peter Strzok — the FBI official who was removed from the special counsel team — was responsible for using the Clinton-funded dossier to get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
If true, it would be a stunning development in the Russia investigation. It would mean that a top FBI official took what was an unverified piece of opposition research funded by Trump’s political opponent, and used it to obtain a surveillance warrant on the Trump campaign.
“If this happened, if you had the FBI working with a campaign, the Democrats’ campaign, taking opposition research, dressing it all up and turning it into an intelligence document and taking it to the FISA court so they could spy on the other campaign — if that happened, that is as wrong as gets,” Jordan told Wray.
It is also not clear yet whether Strzok or other FBI officials used the dossier to launch the investigation into the Trump campaign, which has cast a cloud of suspicion and fueled partisan attacks against the Trump administration until this day.
But there may be more to this than is being reported.
In a mid-November interview, Trey Gowdy – who sits on the House Intelligence Committee and would have access to this information – said he could not say whether the dossier was used in obtaining FISA warrants, but he did implore the Trump administration to declassify the warrants so the information could be made public.
This statement led many to believe Gowdy had seen the warrants and knows that the dossier was used by the FBI but is not permitted in saying so because the information is classified.
The foundation of lies that Mueller’s investigation was built upon is collapsing.
If he wants to retain any credibility at all, Mueller should wrap his investigation up and publicly pronounce the President’s innocence.
