The Hill’s Solomon: DOJ Officials Withholding ‘Proof of Innocence’ Durning Inception of Russia Probe Looks To Be Likely

Opinion| The Hill’s John Solomon just published a brand new report which could very well result in huge trouble for Democrats & DOJ officials during the inception of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Solomon, one of the most important journalists of our time, paints the picture that multiple officials likely withheld “proof of innocence” & potentially exonerating information from investigators.  For those of us who are keeping our finger on the pulse of both the Trump Russia investigation and FISAgate, we are starting to notice that the worm seems to be turning.  As Mueller is said to be wrapping up his “probe,” Obama admin officials are beginning to have their indiscretions exposed daily now.

I know we would have liked this all to have happened sooner, but Trump always has said he is a “counterpuncher,” and now that he has let his opponent all but “punch themselves out,” he seems to be moving in for the kill …

Here is an excerpt from Solomon’s piece over at The Hill:

If President Trump declassifies evidence in the Russia investigation, Carter Page’s summer bike ride to a Virginia farm and George Papadopoulos’s hasty academic jaunt to London may emerge as linchpin proof of FBI surveillance abuses during the 2016 election.

The two trips have received scant attention. But growing evidence suggests both Trump campaign advisers made exculpatory statements — at the very start of the FBI’s investigation — that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion theory peddled to agents by Democratic sources.

The FBI plowed ahead anyway with an unprecedented intrusion into a presidential campaign, while keeping evidence of the two men’s innocence from the courts.

Page and Papadopoulos, who barely knew each other, met separately in August and September 2016 with Stefan Halper, the American-born Cambridge University professor who, the FBI told Congress, worked as an undercover informer in the Russia case.

Papadopoulos was the young aide that the FBI used to justify opening a probe into the Trump campaign on July 31, 2016, after he allegedly told a foreign diplomat that he knew Russia possessed incriminating emails about Hillary Clinton.

Page, a volunteer campaign adviser, was the American the FBI then targeted on Oct. 21, 2016, for secret surveillance while investigating Democratic Party-funded allegations that he secretly might have coordinated Russia’s election efforts with the Trump campaign during a trip to Moscow.

To appreciate the significance of the two men’s interactions with Halper, one must understand the rules governing the FBI when it seeks a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant such as the one secured against Page.

First, the FBI must present evidence to FISA judges that it has verified and that comes from intelligence sources deemed reliable. Second, it must disclose any information that calls into question the credibility of its sources. Finally, it must disclose any evidence suggesting the innocence of its investigative targets.

Thanks to prior releases of information, we know the FBI fell short on the first two counts. Multiple FBI officials have testified that the Christopher Steele dossier had not been verified when its allegations were submitted as primary evidence supporting the FISA warrant against Page.

Likewise, we know the FBI failed to tell the courts that Steele admitted to a federal official that he was desperate to defeat Trump in the 2016 election and was being paid by Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to gather dirt on the GOP candidate. Both pieces of information are the sort of credibility-defining details that should be disclosed about a source.  READ MORE @ The Hill.com
