Kudos to Mollie Hemingway who has been working this story for months. Her report out today further proves what so many suspected – Barack Obama had weaponized the surveillance powers of the U.S. government in an attempt to interfere with the 2016 Election and then later damage the incoming president from the opposition party. It’s the single greatest political scandal in American history.

Confirmed: DOJ Used Materially False Information To Secure Wiretaps On Trump Associate
Newly released documents confirm House and Senate investigators’ claims that the Department of Justice and FBI used materially false and misleading information to secure wiretaps on Carter Page, a former volunteer foreign policy advisor to President Trump. The highly redacted documents released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests show how the FBI was able to convince the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to surveil the Naval Academy graduate and energy consultant for a year of his life.
The wiretap was applied for and granted in October 2016, shortly before the end of the presidential campaign. Approved applications last for 90 days. The Department of Justice requested and received three renewals, for a total of one year of surveillance. Despite claiming to the court in 2016 that “the FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government,” the government has yet to charge Page with breaking any of the serious laws it alleges he knowingly transgressed.
Here is what the highly redacted FISA applications show us thus far.
The Dossier Provided an Essential Part Of Application.
The Dossier Was Not Verified
The Applications Employed Circular Reporting
Cites Steele’s Credibility, Despite Overwhelming Evidence To Doubt It
The Applications Made Materially False Claims
The True Funding Of Dossier Was Oddly Obscured
There is simply no way such an operation against a then-presidential nominee, (and now President of the United States) was not overseen/approved at the highest levels of the Obama White House up to and including, Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. The Obama administration was working hand-in-hand/colluding with the Clinton campaign to first manipulate the 2016 Election and then to try and overthrow a duly elected president. In other countries such abusive/treasonous behavior gets people imprisoned – or worse. In the U.S. it gets the perpetrators of the crimes multi-million dollar media contracts. To date, Barack Obama is on course to earn nearly $100 million dollars over the next five years.
Wonder if he intends to pay his fair share?
