Paging Robert Mueller: They were breaking the law and took extraordinary measures to insulate Obama and his operatives.
From a text between Stzrok and Page:
Sept. 2, 2016:
FBI attorney Lisa Page texts Strzok that “[President Obama] wants to know everything we’re doing.”
Comments made by Attorney General William Barr about extraordinary arrangements regarding the original handling of the Russia investigation may take on more significance in light of a previous report showing a high and unusual degree of compartmentalization in the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial intel set up of the Russia probe.
In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may raise questions. He noted it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”
“The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved. I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is, Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.”
Deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017, the newspaper detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.
According to the newspaper, in the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.”
The Post described the unit as so secretive it functioned as a “sealed compartment” hidden even from the rest of the U.S. intelligence community; a unit whose workers were all made to sign additional non-disclosure forms.
The unit reported to top officials, the newspaper documented:
They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their subsequent efforts to collect more intelligence on Russia.
The number of Obama administration officials who were allowed access to the Russia intelligence was also highly limited, The Post reported. At first only four senior officials were involved: Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey. Their aides were all barred from attending the initial meetings, The Post stated.
Obama’s fingerprints are all over this shit. Once Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, and Comey put this whole scheme together, Obama was briefed and went along with it.
Here’s what should be investigated:
The Russians gave $35 million to a company with John Podesta on the board.
A fake dossier paid for by one political party and its candidate was used by the government to spy on that candidate’s opponent.
The Obama regime’s FISA abuse in order to get permission to wiretap Trump.
Comey, who is an unscrupulous douchebag, was part and parcel of the conspiracy to undermine the election and overthrow a duly elected president through false allegations and sedition. He also leaked classified information when it suited his purpose and lied to the FISA court.
Former CIA director John Brennan, colluded with British and Estonian spies to undermine the election.
Hillary’s Uranium One deal with the Russians netted her $145 million to her corrupt Clinton Foundation.
Mueller is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. He eagerly participated in a wild goose chase of phantom crimes. He should be investigated, as well.
The investigation was a conspiracy to oust a duly elected President on baseless grounds.
