The head of the House Intelligence Committee dropped a rather large bombshell on Sunday that the American Pravda media is doing its level best to ignore, and that is this: His panel has found no evidence whatsoever to justify the Obama FBI and Justice Department spying on Team Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Rather, Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo, the entire case was fabricated for political, not intelligence, purposes.
“This is really important to us because the intelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens,” Nunes told Bartiromo. “So, we’ve long wanted to know what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation. So what we found now after the investigators have reviewed it is, in fact, there was no intelligence.”
Bartiromo was flabbergasted — as every American who still cares about justice, law and order ought to be.
“Mr. Chairman, you’ve got to explain what you just said. I think this is extraordinary,” she said. “That you’re telling us that in order for the FBI, the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into so-called collusion between President Trump and the Russians there was no official intelligence used. Then how did this investigation start?”
“I think that is the point. We don’t understand and never understood,” Nunes responded.
There’s more, as reported by The National Sentinel:
Nunes explained further that the probe into the Trump campaign was a counterintelligence operation that “uses the tools of the U.S. intelligence community” — including the Five Eyes agreement between the U.S., UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. The Five Eyes agreement, made immediately after World War II to monitor Soviet and Communist bloc communications, has been used by the various countries to monitor each others’ citizens, since doing so domestically in each country is against the law.
The chairman said “there was no intelligence passed through the Five Eyes to our government” pertaining to the Trump campaign. “That’s a major problem,” he said, adding that his committee’s investigation has also found some “irregularities” at the State Department while Hillary Clinton was at the helm.
That prompted Bartiromo to ask what role Clinton may have played in setting up the political operation against the Trump campaign. Nunes responded that investigators aren’t sure yet, but they do know some intelligence was passed through the Clinton-run State Department by confidants of hers including Sydney Blumenthal back to the FBI.
This is nothing short of incredible. Many critics of the Mueller probe and the Obama administration suspected all along that the investigation into then-candidate Donald J. Trump and his campaign team might have been politically motivated, but until now there had been no official verification of those suspicions.
Nunes’ revelations also beg several questions, such as, who knew about this hoax, and when did they know it?
What role did President Obama play? His attorney general, Loretta Lynch? Hillary Clinton and her campaign?
What about James Comey and Andrew McCabe, the latter of whom has been recommended for criminal charges by the Justice Department’s inspector general? (Related: Andrew McCabe the subject of DoJ criminal referral… is James Comey next?)
What did current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein know — and did he know it when he was doing Comey’s bidding and appointing special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump over a lie? A political operation?
Jumping ahead, what is current Attorney General Jeff Sessions doing to clear out the politicized ranks of the FBI and DoJ? Why haven’t more people been fired — Peter Strzok and Lisa Page come to mind — by now? Are they cooperating in some behind-the-scenes investigation we don’t yet know about?
Nunes said he and his congressional investigators have so much more to look into, but as they peel back each layer of corruption, it becomes clearer that under Obama the Justice Department was transformed into the Gestapo.
