JOHN SOLOMON: Newly Declassified Memos Show FBI’s Russia Collusion Case Fell Apart in First Month of Trump Presidency

Robert Mueller

The FBI’s Russia collusion case fell apart within the first couple weeks of Trump’s presidency, yet Mueller accepted his appointment as special counsel and continued his $35 million witch hunt anyway.

According to award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon, Mueller was aware that in early 2017 there was no Russian collusion yet he pressed on and forced Trump’s associates to plead guilty to unrelated process crimes.

According to declassified memos, the Steele dossier was debunked in January of 2017 and the idea that General Mike Flynn was a Russian asset was also ruled out at the same time.

Yet the Deep State continued with damaging leaks to the media claiming Flynn was working on behalf of Russia.

Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell confirmed that Mueller was aware of a letter sent to Flynn in January of 2017 questioning Christopher Steele’s credibility.

According to John Solomon, the British government “hand-delivered” the letter to Flynn’s legal team that “totally disavowed any credibility of Christopher Steele, and would have completely destroyed the Russia collusion narrative,” Sidney Powell said.

“I was told that a copy of the document would have been given to [then-National Security Adviser] Susan Rice as well,” Powell added. “So the Obama administration knew full well that the entire Russia collusion mess was a farce.”

The piecemeal release of FBI files in the Russia collusion investigation has masked an essential fact: James Comey’s G-men had substantially debunked the theory that Donald Trump’s campaign conspired with Moscow by the time the 45th president was settling into the Oval Office, according to declassified memos, court filings and interviews.

In rapid fire sequence in January 2017, U.S. officials:

  • received multiple warnings about the credibility of informant Christopher Steele and his dossier;
  • affirmed key targets of the FBI counterintelligence investigation made exculpatory statements denying collusion to undercover sources;
  • concluded retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, was not engaged in collusion with the Russians.

Flynn’s motion is confirmed by a 2018 letter obtained by Just the News between Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office and defense lawyers. It shows the DOJ exoneration memo was written after Flynn had been interviewed by FBI agents in January 2017 and after the government learned the former Defense Intelligence Agency chief had kept his old agency briefed on his contacts with Russia, something that weighed heavily against the notion he was aiding Moscow.

“According to an internal DOJ memo dated January 30, 2017, after the Jan. 24 interview, the FBI advised that based on the interview the FBI did not believe Flynn was acting as an agent of Russia,” Mueller’s team wrote in the letter.

These newly declassified memos along with the rebuke from presiding FISA judge James Boasberg where he ruled two of the FISA warrants against Carter Page invalid should be enough to prosecute everyone involved.

Congressional investigators are looking at Comey’s February 2017 White House meeting with Trump as an effort to shift the Russian collusion probe to an obstruction of justice probe because he knew the Russia accusations had already been debunked.

The Congressional investigators are also looking into why Weissmann’s Mueller’s report did not state why the FBI’s Russian collusion case fell apart a couple weeks into Trump’s presidency.
