GOP Sen. Grassley Muscles FBI As Mueller’s Witch Hunt Reaches Peak Swamp Levels
On Friday Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) demanded the FBI explain the role former British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier has impacted “foreign intelligence sharing.”
Grassley wants to make sure the discredited document doesn’t have an impact on Mueller’s witch hunt either.
Noting that the dossier was passed on to the U.K. government according to lawyers representing author Christopher Steele, Grassley asked the FBI to clarify whether the document’s contents could have been “surreptitiously funneled into U.S. intelligence streams through foreign intelligence sharing.”[…]
If the FBI had interpreted a foreign intelligence service’s receipt of the Steele dossier as a de facto confirmation, “it would be alarming,” Grassley wrote on Friday to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
“Mr. Steele’s dossier allegations might appear to be ‘confirmed’ by foreign intelligence, rather than just an echo of the same ‘research’ that Fusion bought from Steele and that the FBI reportedly also attempted to buy from Steele.”
Grassley asked the FBI to detail any foreign intelligence that may have underpinned its investigation into potential Russian collusion with Trump allies, setting an Oct. 18 deadline for receipt.
As if the scope of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t wide enough, a new report claims former MI-6 officer Christopher Steele, author of the discredited Russian Dossier, met with investigators.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators met this past summer with the former British spy whose dossier on alleged Russian efforts to aid the Trump campaign spawned months of investigations that have hobbled the Trump administration, according to two people familiar with the matter. Information from Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 officer, could help investigators determine whether contacts between people associated with the Trump campaign and suspected Russian operatives broke any laws. CNN has learned that the FBI and the US intelligence community last year took the Steele dossier more seriously than the agencies have publicly acknowledged. James Clapper, then the director of national intelligence, said in a January 2017 statement that the intelligence community had “not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable.”
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton is one of the loudest voices calling for the end of the Mueller probe. He says the probe is out of control, unsupervised and unconstitutional.
In a July interview with The Daily Signal, Fitton said the Mueller probe is “a political effort to jail the president and his family because people don’t like him.”
Fitton is absolutely correct. The Democrats will not stop until Trump, his family members and people in his administration are put in jail.
Fitton also said, “Sessions should un-recuse himself and get rid of Mueller.”
Fired FBI Director, Comey admitted to leaking memos to the press to prompt a special counsel, so why is this investigation still going? Mueller has to go!
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking to block any presidential pardons of his staff in the continued Russian witch hunt.
The investigators have found no evidence of collusion – because there was no Russian collusion – so they are going after President Trump, his family and his staff on financial crimes.
They are looking for crimes like in some banana republic investigation.
