Just Opinion & Speculation| Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is set to make his report public in early September which will contain evidence proving that disgraced former FBI Director James Comey misled President Donald Trump about him being an investigation target according to recent reports.
The Gateway Pundit reports that investigative reporter Paul Sperry reported that the Obama-era FBI Director had been running a “counterintelligence assessment” on then-candidate Donald Trump on the low.
TGP explains, “Comey didn’t even need to keep files or get surveillance warrants on Trump, he may just have covertly made Trump the subject of investigation by spying on him incidentally. Comey of course denies he did this in book ‘A Higher Loyalty.’ Comey had an agent inside the White House reporting back to the FBI about Trump and his aides, sources tell Paul Sperry.”
The following is from Paul Sperry’s Real Clear Investigations report:
Now an answer is emerging. Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president. Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent.
Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration. They said Horowitz has examined high-level FBI text messages and other communications indicating Comey was actually conducting a “counterintelligence assessment” of Trump during that January 2017 meeting in New York.
In addition to adding notes of his meetings and phone calls with Trump to the official FBI case file, Comey had an agent inside the White House who reported back to FBI headquarters about Trump and his aides, according to other officials familiar with the matter.
The agent, Anthony Ferrante, who specialized in cyber crime, left the White House around the same time Comey was fired and soon joined a security consulting firm, where he contracted with BuzzFeed to lead the news site’s efforts to verify the Steele dossier, in connection with a defamation lawsuit.
Knowledgeable sources inside the Trump White House say Comey carved out an extraordinary new position for Ferrante, which allowed him to remain on reserve status at the FBI while working in the White House as a cybersecurity adviser.
“In an unprecedented action, Comey created a new FBI reserve position for Ferrante, enabling him to have an ongoing relationship with the agency, retaining his clearances and enabling him to come back in [to bureau headquarters],” said a former National Security Council official who requested anonymity.
“Between the election and April 2017, when Ferrante finally left the White House, the Trump NSC division supervisor was not allowed to get rid of Ferrante,” he added, “and Ferrante continued working — in direct conflict with the no-contact policy between the White House and the Department of Justice.”
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, just as Attorney General William Barr and Durham have been, is mostly looking at the “shady January 2017 meeting that took place between Comey, the intel chiefs and president-elect Donald Trump in the Trump Tower New York,” according to TGP.
