I am having a difficult time figuring out why this news took so long to come out.
The Clinton election team had the FBI spying on the Trump campaign.It’s very clear since the Carter Page news broke earlier this year. This lowly campaign worker had the most invasive designation for surveillance. Everyone he spoke to and everyone they spoke to was fair game under the FISA court ruling.
Carter Page, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos were all implicated in having Russian contacts in the summer of 2016. Page and Clovis testified to a grand jury with no charges being drought, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October 2017 to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kremlin-linked Russians and is cooperating in the Mueller probe.
Neither Page or Clovis were charged with any wrongdoing by the grand jury. The Papadopoulos guilty plea was for his own wrongdoing and did not lead to higher officials in the Trump campaign.
However, much of the information for the Trump Dossier was culled from the Page wiretaps, which has all but been debunked as Clinton campaign propaganda.
So ironically, the Clinton campaign and possibly others will eventually be snared in the operation they created to take down the opponent.
This is why United States Attorney John Huber was brought in to the Justice Department. He will work along side with Inspector General of the Department of Justice Michael Horowitz to discover how far up the chain this spying on a presidential candidate may go.
The collusion certainly goes as high as The White House, the question is did the decision go to the Oval Office? I believe it had to be, since DOJ chief Loretta Lynch approved the action and I don’t believe she would not cover herself by telling the president of the directive.
This topic may have been on the agenda when Lynch and Bill Clinton “unexpectedly” met in June 2016 on the tarmac at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.
In a separate aside, I’m told to be on alert for big news coming out on this Wednesday. I would say things are getting interesting.
