Barrack Obama knows that his espionage of spies on Trump’s campaign has landed Democrats in hot water.
And there’s no way of escape.
Now Republicans are asking for a list of suspects that has Obama shaking with rage.
The Steele dossier was a hit piece written by Christopher Steele, an ex-British spy.
Christopher Steele was well known in the intelligence community for embellishing facts and his dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.
There were warning signs from the very beginning that Steele shouldn’t be trusted, and yet the information in the dossier was used for years to attack Trump.
In January 2017, the primary source for the Steele dossier was interviewed by the FBI.
Rather than being a source within the Russian government, he was a U.S.-based researcher who was not well connected to confidential sources within Russia.
Yet despite that, the FBI told the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2018 th there was no reason to doubt the information in the Steele dossier.
Sen. Lindsey Graham is now asking FBI Director Christopher Wray to give him the names of the officials who lied to the committee.
“In 2017, the FBI interviewed the Primary Sub-source three times, including one interview that occurred over three days in January 2017. The result of those interviews was that the Primary Sub-source largely discredited the dossier and the way that Steele reported and characterized the information the Primary Sub-source had given him,” Graham said in the letter to Wray.
“Yet, in the outline of FBI’s briefing to the Intelligence Committee,” Graham continues, “it states that: (1) the Primary Sub-source ‘did not cite any significant concerns with the way his reporting was characterized in the dossier to the extent he could identify it’; (2) ‘[a]t minimum, our discussions with [the Primary Sub-source] confirm that the dossier was not fabricated by Steele’; and (3) the Primary Sub-source ‘maintains trusted relationships with individuals who are capable of reporting on the material he collected for Steele.'”
Graham is serious about making sure the FBI officials who lied to the Senate are held accountable.
“Somebody needs to go to jail for this,” Graham told Fox news.
The FBI was already caught lying on their applications to get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
The FBI clearly misused their power during the 2016 election in a way that influenced the election.
They overlooked Hillary Clinton’s misuse of classified information and instead focused their resources on wiretapping members of the Trump campaign.
This not only reflects badly on the FBI but also the Obama administration who were aware of at least some of the conservations the FBI was overhearing.
