High-ranking figures within the U.S. government were actively working against the Donald Trump campaign for POTUS. This effort took place over several months, including illegal surveillance of private citizens as well as widespread collusion with influential Establishment/Social Media figures.
And now the Deep State is trying desperately to cover its tracks.
Showdown looms over Trump dossier; FBI misses third deadline to turn over subpoenaed documents
A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to give the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed documents related to the Trump dossier. And for a third time, the bureau has not produced the material.
…The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy supporters of Hillary Clinton. The FBI reportedly considered taking over the dossier project in the fall of 2016, when the campaign was at its height, leading Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to say the dossier matter raised “questions about the FBI’s independence from politics.”
…Both Grassley and the House Intelligence Committee have been interested in learning if the FBI ever used the “salacious and unverified” dossier as a basis for requesting surveillance on anyone in the Trump circle. Those questions only intensified this week with reports that the FBI wiretapped Trump associate and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort during the transition period.
Four weeks ago, on Aug. 24, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the FBI and Justice Department, seeking all internal FBI reports “incorporating, relying on, or referring to” information provided by Steele, his sources, or Fusion GPS. The committee also asked for documents on any FBI or Justice “efforts to corroborate, validate, or evaluate” Steele’s information. And the subpoena sought any surveillance applications that included any information or were based on any information, provided by Steele.
Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes originally set a Sept. 1 deadline for production of the dossier documents. The FBI did not comply. Nunes then extended the deadline to Sept. 14. The FBI did not comply. Then Nunes extended the deadline again, to Sept. 22. Now, again, the FBI has not complied.
The reason for the delay is simple. The fabricated “Trump dossier” represents a direct link between the anti-Trump factions within the U.S. government, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the then-Obama White House. Some very powerful forces want this evidence buried – forever.
The will of the voters was nearly supplanted by a small group of powerful elites. Those elites have since retreated back into the shadows and want nothing to do with the light of truth shining upon them. The entirety of the false Trump-Russia narrative has been little more than providing cover for their criminal wrongdoing.
