“Somebody’s Going To Have To Go To Prison”: Ex-U.S. Attny Says Memo 2.0 Confirms Obama State Dept. Official Helped Feed FBI False Info

In an interview with Laura Ingraham Tuesday evening, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova said he believes the Grassley-Graham letter — memo 2.0 — confirms Obama State Department officials helped feed the FBI false information through dossier author Christopher Steele.

Such information was then used by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign. 

DiGenova: The Grassley-Graham memo establishes beyond any doubt that the FBI knowingly deceived the FISA court about the information it was presenting to them, lied to them about the fact that it was verified information, which it was not — which the law requires. And now we know that additional Clinton allies, including Sidney Blumenthal, were involved in the transmission of false information, unverified information to the FBI through State Department officials. Somebody’s going to have to go to prison.”

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a “much-less redacted,” version of this week’s criminal referral — also known as memo 2.0 — of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

In a letter released Monday, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) revealed Steele complied an anti-Trump memo based on information given to him by a Hillary Clinton contact and Obama State Department official.

Carter reports:


A new and highly redacted document released Monday by the Senate Judiciary Committee reveals that former British spy Christopher Steele, the man behind the unverified and controversial dossier, wrote an additional memo regarding alleged Russian collusion with President Donald Trump but that the information was largely based on information provided by allies of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. […]

Steele, whose prior work with British intelligence gave him access to U.S. intelligence and State Department officials, also appeared to be in contact with Jonathan Winer, a current State Department official who also worked under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Winer is the “State Department’s Special Envoy for Libya and Senior Advisor for MEK resettlement,” according to the State Department website.

Another connection to the second dossier, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter, is close friend and advisor to Hillary Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal.

Outgoing Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) strongly implied to Fox News host Martha MacCallum Tuesday evening that Clinton confidant, Sidney Blumenthal, was a source for Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump dossier.
