We’ve been saying since November of 2016 that the FISA Court was fraudulently used to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign team in the months leading up to the election. We knew since February of 2017 that the NSA and the FBI were directed by the Obama administration to unmask persons within the Trump team and that the evidence used to obtain the warrant was obtained illegally and presented to the court as evidence of itself.
We’ve been saying the same thing day after day because the lies of the Left made it necessary. Sean Hannity has been banging the same drum, and the Left mocks him for it. They’ve labeled him a far-right extremist.
But when you’re in government, particularly in the executive branch, it isn’t enough to know that a thing is true. You have to be able to prove it, you have to be able to make your case so solidly that if someone were to deny it, it would be as if they were denying gravity. Now Hannity and the rest of us are vindicated.
Finally, after three and a half years, they have exactly that. The General Inspector of the Justice Department, Michael Horowitz has what is being called a breakthrough in the FISA abuse case. He has a witness who is cooperating with the investigation.
According to Fox News, “At least one witness outside the Justice Department has started cooperating at the final hour. While the investigative stage of the inspector general’s probe is believed to be complete, sources said recent developments required witnesses to be interviewed again. While Barr testified that he expected the report to be ready soon, sources said the time-line has slipped.”
Earlier this year, after the Mueller probe was officially declared over- with negative results- AG William Barr put the fear of God into Democrats when he said that he had a strong suspicion that the FISA warrant had been obtained illegally and that spying had occurred.
Immediately after that, Washington Democrats began scrambling to defame Barr. They said he was disturbed, that he was a Russian agent, and that he had signed a deal with the devil (read Donald Trump).
But Barr was not shaken. He did not show any signs of fear or anger. He simply appointed US Attorney John Durham to, in his words, “investigate whether the government’s methods to collect intelligence relating to the Trump campaign were lawful and appropriate,” according to the Associated Press.
Fox News has called Durham a “hard-charging bulldog,” of a prosecutor, a statement that multiple sources corroborate.
According to The Hill, senior State Department officials knew the Steele “dossier” that claimed that Trump had a scatological sexual encounter with a Russian prostitute and that the encounter had some connection to Russian meddling in the 2016 election, was paid for by the Clinton Campaign through the DNC.
Other sources revealed in the early months of 2016 that the DNC, who paid for the dossier, commissioned a firm known as Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Hillary’s political opponent—Donald Trump. Fusion GPS went on to hire Trump hating Christopher Steele (a former British intelligence agent) who drafted the actual document.
The Hill writes, “[…] that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.”
Another article by The Hill claims that Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, “[…] has determined that some of the Donald Trump opposition research that Steele was digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign at the same time was not accurate, and that it was likely almost certainly intentionally leaked to the media.”
They apparently believed that the dossier had more value for them in the public eye than it did as evidence in a court case against Trump. This is a common thread with other accusations such as those brought against Brett Kavanaugh. Rather than file the documents appropriately, the Democrats let them leak.
But why leak them? Because they are not interested in winning court battles. They are interested in fooling the American voter. And it works. Even now, many strident liberals still believe there was significant Russian involvement in the 2016 election.
Absolutely none of this is new information. But what is new is documentation that will stand up in court. To put it into the words of CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, and all the lock-step liberal outlets spoken in perfect unison: ‘this is the beginning of the end.’
