FBI Gives Congress Thousands of Requested Documents on Russia Probe, FISA Abuse and Its Use of Informants

The FBI gave Congress thousands of requested documents on the Russia probe this week, including details on its use of spies and FISA abuse during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

It took several months and threats of contempt and impeachment to get these documents from the FBI and DOJ.

Politico reported:

The FBI turned over thousands of documents to Congress this week, including details about its use of informants to glean information on Russian contacts with President Donald Trump’s campaign, according to letters the bureau sent to three GOP committee chairmen on Friday.

The documents provided this week include details about some of the FBI’s most sensitive programs, including a file on the FBI’s justification to obtain a court-authorized warrant to spy on a former Trump campaign aide in October 2016.


Files continued to arrive on Capitol Hill as late as Friday, according to the bureau, when the FBI submitted a classified letter to the House Intelligence Committee detailing whether the FBI relied on informants on Russian meddling prior to the official opening of its investigation.

Also on Friday, the FBI turned over more than 1,400 pages of documents to the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees relating to senior FBI or Justice Department officials’ requests to review or manage surveillance records that either involve or mention the Trump campaign or Trump administration.

The FBI did not hand over transcripts of summaries of the informants’ (yes, plural) conversations with Trump campaign officials. Instead, the Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats was tasked with getting those requested documents to Congress, according to Politico.

So far we know one of the informant’s identities.

The informant, Stefan Halper, was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included spying on the Trump campaign.

It was a lucrative business for Stefan Halper.

Hill sources are saying the FBI spy who infiltrated Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016, Stefan Halper bled information into Hillary’s phony dossier, reported Paul Sperry.

On May 21st, former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo appeared on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle and dropped a bombshell–he said he was approached by a SECOND informant during the 2016 election.

The DOJ and FBI have been stonewalling on the requested documents relating to the informants, FISA abuse and phony dossier because it is a threat to the phony Mueller witch hunt and exposes the criminals in the Obama administration.
