Per a review of information related to the fake Trump – Russia sham, it is now clear that the top Executives in Obama’s FBI all knew that there were multiple copies of the Steele dossier and yet they signed multiple FISA warrant applications to spy on President Trump anyways.
Per a review of prior posts and information released to the “Spygate” scandal, it is now clear that the FBI knew the Steele dossier was a fraud and yet they used it to not only obtain a FISA warrant to spy on President Trump, they also used this dirty information multiple times to obtain additional warrants. It’s highly probable that this information was never shared with the FISA Court of course. According to a report from the Hill released in July 2018 –
Now, memos the FBI is turning over to Congress show the bureau possessed at least three versions of the dossier and its mostly unverified allegations of collusion.
Each arrived from a different messenger: McCain, Mother Jones reporter David Corn, Fusion GPS founder (and Steele boss) Glenn Simpson.
That revelation is in an email that disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok wrote to FBI executives around the time BuzzFeed published a version of the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.
“Our internal system is blocking the site,” Strzok wrote of the document posted on BuzzFeed. “I have the PDF via iPhone but it’s 25.6MB. Comparing now. The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson.)”
The significance of Strzok’s email is obvious to investigators who reviewed it in recent days. The FBI is supposed to be immune to manipulation by circular information flows, especially with sensitive investigations such as evaluating whether a foreign power tampered with an American election.
Remember also that the FBI was warned that the Steele dossier was fraudulent by the State Department’s Kathleen Kavalec after she met with Christopher Steele. Taken together this information shows that not only did the FBI apply for the initial FISA application knowing the dossier was a fraud created by a Trump hater from the UK, but the “Executives” at the FBI filed for additional applications all knowing the dossier was a fake with numerous versions in the public square.
Top Obama FBI Executives (likely including Comey, McCabe, Baker, Strzok and Page, to name a few) all knew the Steele dossier was a sham and yet they used it to file multiple applications for warrants to spy on the Trump administration.
