New revelations out of the FBI reveals that they obtained the phone records of the Trump campaign through a secret subpoena and the investigation into Trump was called Crossfire Hurricane.
The New York Times broke the story and they didn’t even realize they made liars out of half of the FBI in the process. For a long time now, the Deep State has insisted that the investigation into Trump was launched after talking to an Australian diplomat. Problem is the New Times specifically states that FBI agents traveled to talk to Amb Alexander Downer. Therefore the Downer interview could not have been the basis for starting the investigation. It started in July and they talked to Downer on August 2nd.
So let me sum this up for you. The FBI placed a spy in the Trump campaign, seized all of his phone records, his emails (Illegally), investigated Trump for 20 months and the special counsel has no investigated for a year. Tons of money has been spent and still not one iota of evidence of Russian collusion.
Was this an investigation in search of a crime? Of course, it was. And they never found one. The FBI also said that the Hillary dossier had nothing to do with opening the investigation, then w found that an FBI agent flew to Italy to check out the Hillary dossier on July 5th of 2016, the very day that Comey did his press conference exonerating Hillary. That was before the investigation began, not before like the Downer interview.
The New York Times reported:
Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.
Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.
The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.
The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.
Every day, we get closer to the truth and quite frankly, it’s scary to see what the Democrats were able to accomplish………short of winning the White House that is.
