House investigators have turned over texts to Fox News that suggests that Obama, FBI, CIA, and DOJ conspired to frame President Trump. For good measure, you can throw Harry Reid in there.
Things are starting to fall into place and the FISA warrants could be the first step and the IG’s final report will be the giant second step. And this could be the nails in the coffin.
It shows that all four may have been involved in this together, but before you get excited, someone below Obama will fall on their sword.
Fox News reports:
Republican investigators provided documents to Fox News which — they say — “strongly suggest” coordination between former President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan —which they say would “contradict” the Obama administration’s public stance about its hand in the process.
Page texted Strzok on Aug. 2, 2016, saying: “Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia, etc. You probably know better than me.”
A text message from Strzok to Page on Aug. 3 described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with “information control” related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign. According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference.
Days later, on Aug. 8, 2016, Strzok texted Page: “Internal joint cyber cd intel piece for D, scenesetter for McDonough brief, Trainer [head of FBI cyber division] directed all cyber info be pulled. I’d let Bill and Jim hammer it out first, though it would be best for D to have it before the Wed WH session.”
In the texts, “D” referred to FBI Director James Comey, and “McDonough” referred to Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, the GOP investigators said.
We have known for a while that something funny was going on but now it has spread much farther than any of us could have suspected. This is looking way bigger than Watergate and is likely to snare some very dirty cops.
A congressional source told Fox News that on August 25, 2016, Brennen went to Capitol Hill to brief Harry Reid. Two days later Harry Reid sent a letter to James Comey:
The New York Times reported
“The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount and has led Michael Morrell, the former Acting Central Intelligence Director, to call Trump an ‘unwitting agent’ of Russia and the Kremlin. The prospect of a hostile government actively seeking to undermine our free and fair elections represents one of the gravest threats to our democracy since the Cold War and it is critical for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use every resource available to investigate this matter thoroughly and in a timely fashion.”
It’s starting to get better.
The following day, Aug. 30, 2016, Page texted Strzok: “Here we go,” sending a link to the Times report titled, “Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote and seeks FBI inquiry.”
Strzok replied: “D [Comey] said at am brief that Reid called him and told him he would be sending a letter.”
Congressional investigators suggested that the Reid letter possibly provided “cover” for the fact that the FBI and Justice Department had already begun investigating the Trump campaign in mid-July on what they called “questionable ethical and legal grounds.”
“The ‘here we go’ text between Strzok and Page indicates the FBI/ DOJ knew the letter from Reid was coming,” a congressional source told Fox News. “This created the inference they knew it would create public calls for an investigation into Russian interference — covering them.”
The source told Fox News on Wednesday that investigators were neither “passing judgment” nor “claiming a smoking gun,” but suggested that the timeline was “incredibly concerning.”
“At some point, the amount of concerning information becomes enough for a special counsel to look into it.”
The guys were unbelievable. They did all of this without anyone suspecting. They thought that Hillary would be elected and this would all have been buried where no one would ever find it again.
They were so certain of a Hillary victory, they got very sloppy and left too many trails.
