Back in April of this year I wrote about what is now coming to the fore.
The story dribbling out now is how the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant was issued based on the Trump Dossier, which was paid for in large part by the Clinton campaign. Yes you have Fusion/GPS and Christopher Steele operating with Clinton campaign and the Obama White House all of which I covered here.
The whole Russian collusion case is based on lies forged in the dossier and circulated to partisan federal law enforcement staff in the FBI and DOJ, who cleaned it up a bit and included some other “questionable” facts and presented the finding to the FISA court for the surveillance warrant. The feds did not tell the court that the application was based largely on Clinton campaign opposition research.
The first ruling from the court did not grant the warrant, so the document was re-circulated among the same staffers: AG Loretta Lynch, FBI director James Comey, his second in charge, Rod Rosenstein, FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page among others and reissued to the court and was approved. All of this is known to my readers months ago.
However until the unredacted FBI application for the warrant is released Americans will not know the truly despicable acts taking place within the Obama White House to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory.
The most interesting development — largely overlooked by the press — was that the redacted FBI application was released at all. FISA operations have the highest security clearance in government. FISA operations are not subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. So who approved its release?
Only one person could declassify the heavily redacted FBI warrant application: President Trump. Will the President declassify the entire report? That could be an October Surprise in time for the midterm elections.
