This is likely the most ironic thing that has happened in some time. How long were we promised a massive declassification of documents from the Obama admin’s Spygate crime spree?
I’ll be the first to confess that for years sites like ours were publishing quotes from people like Lindsey Graham, Devin Nunes (not that I think Lindsey and Devin are the same) and other officials ,telling us how the smoking gun documents existed & were ‘coming soon.’
We all waited with bated breath for the documents to come, yet they never did. We have enough evidence to know what went on, more or less, but we never did get that big document dump, which we were told would be followed by the execution of sealed indictments resulting in the arrest of high profile offenders.
Now, I am not saying that I think anyone is actually going to get in trouble for this, but it should be noted that this is a HUGE development and it is now beyond debate that Comey was part of the plot to deny Trump, and the American people, their Devine right to self determination.
The Gateway Pundit explained:
‘In January 2017, James Comey sent then-DNI James Clapper an email informing him that the bureau had not verified the contents of the Steele dossier but Comey went on to sign the second FISA warrant on Carter Page anyway.
“We are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting,” Comey wrote in a Jan. 12, 2017 email to James Clapper in a newly declassified memo.
The memo shows a back-and-forth between the US intel community and the FBI discussing Christopher Steele and Carter Page six months into the bureau’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that kicked off in July of 2016.
The CIA had already told James Comey’s FBI that Carter Page, a Trump campaign advisor who was a target of spy warrants, was NOT a Russian spy, but rather a CIA asset who had previously helped US intelligence for many years.
The FBI had also received warnings about former British spy Christopher Steele that he hated Trump and that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had planted the Russian collusion story in an effort to distract from her email scandal.
The FBI terminated Christopher Steele in November of 2016 but Comey used his fake dossier and signed the January 2017 FISA renewal on Carter Page anyway.’
John Solomon via Just The News reported:
It was in that environment in the final days of the Obama administration that Clapper had written Comey earlier on Jan. 12, 2017 to inform the FBI that Clapper had decided to release a public statement declaring that the Steele dossier was only mentioned in an appendix to the intel community’s report because the “IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.”
Comey tried to push back, suggesting Steele was deemed reliable (he actually had been terminated by the FBI for leaking by that time) and that his network included sources that might be in a position to know things (although the key source had already disavowed the information attributed to him in the dossier).
“I just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today,” Comey wrote Clapper. “Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say ‘the IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.’ I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be sub-sources in a position to report on such things; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report.
Then Comey added the line that undercut his argument: “That said, we are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting to include it in the body of the report.”
Comey knew, he knew and he allowed it anyway. Is nothing sacred anymore? Even though we all ‘knew’ this was the case, it’s another thing for the conformation to be published and for it to be indisputable.
Again, I don’t think anyone is going to end up in trouble for what they did to Trump, and I think they are not done going after Trump, but I do think, honest historians (if such a thing is legal in the future) will have access to the documents to reveal the TRUE story of what actually happened in the great election on 2016.
