Yesterday it was reported that a long email chain was uncovered that provides evidence that former FBI Head James Comey and others in his inner circle signed and sent a FISA warrant application to the FISA Court and that they knew the FISA warrant was fraudulent.
Since the emails are labeled classified by the Deep State DOJ and FBI, Comey wanted to have his testimony in front of Congress this week in the open so he wouldn’t have to discuss his criminal actions like this one.
Yesterday, John Solomon from the Hill reported that a long email chain was uncovered that the Republican House members added to the list of documents they would like President Trump to un-classify and release to the American public.
As reported by TGP’s Cristina Laila –
Former FBI Director James Comey is reportedly in this long email chain which is dated October of 2016 – just before the FBI obtained its first FISA warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
“If these documents are released, the American public will have clear and convincing evidence to see the FISA warrant that escalated the Russia probe just before Election Day was flawed and the judges (were) misled,” one knowledgeable source told John Solomon.
- The FBI acknowledged in the emails there were intelligence community concerns about the Steele dossier before they secured a FISA warrant.
- The FBI knew Steele was talking to the media before they obtained a FISA warrant.
This is significant because the FBI has maintained for the last two years that they fired Christopher Steele after they obtained the FISA warrant after finding out he violated FBI protocol by speaking to the media.
The FBI used Michael Isikoff’s Yahoo News article as a source to corroborate the Steele dossier when presenting evidence to the FISC. If they knew Steele was Isikoff’s source, the FBI is guilty of circular intelligence reporting which of course is against protocol. They presented the two sources as independent which means they defrauded the FISC.
When Comey signed off on the FISA warrant request to the FISA Court to obtain a legal basis to spy on Carter Page and President Trump he lied.
This is now a fact because the FISA request had the following caption about Steele’s work in it – “the FBI is unaware of any derogatory information pertaining to Source #1 [Steele].”
We also know from the work of Judicial Watch that no hearings were held on the fraudulent FISA warrant applications sent to the FISA Court by Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ leadership team to spy on candidate and then President Trump.
In response to Judicial Watch's FOIA lawsuit, DOJ admitted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court didn't hold hearings on the FISA spy applications targeting Carter Page (the former Trump campaign adviser who was the target of four FISA warrants).https://t.co/sqn79ooreB

No wonder President Trump called Comey the “WORST FBI Director in history”.
Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!
