Here, via Gregg Re and Catherine Herridge’s article for foxews.com, are the opening paragraphs detailing new information on the fraudulent, scandalous way a two year collusion witch hunt, the purpose of which was to unseat an elected president – took place:
The FBI formally documented the apparent anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele shortly after the November 2016 presidential election — yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, recordsobtained by Fox News show.
The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016. The records further confirmed that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening. “I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”
The summaries of FBI interviews with Ohr, known as 302s, indicated that Ohr knew by September 2016 — a month before the initial FISA application to surveil the Trump campaign — that an individual with links to the dossier was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President.”Sen. Lindsey Graham reacts to Ohr 302s that reveal the FBI was warned about red flags with Steele’s work.
“Ohr believes [redacted] wanted to blunt or foil the Kremlin’s plans,” the FBI document continued, while recounting claims pushed by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the dossier that was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC)
Tell me; if the parties were reversed – if this were the Republican Party in power and Republican appointees doing exactly the same thing after a Democrat won the presidency, do you think it might be reported in mainstream media?
How about front page and lead-story news in every major venue. Any doubt about that?
But, unless you are reading foxnews.com or watching its shows – particularly Sean Hannity, who, along with John Solomon and Sarah Carter, should be winning pulitzer prizes for their diligence in uncovering this unprecedented scandal – you probably don’t know a thing about it.
This is the dead-center reason I have so little regard for so much of what, it seems clear to me, is our compromised, partisan media. And, I would like to think, it has a significant part in why a) fewer and fewer people trust mainstream media and b) the term “fake news” resonates with so many of us.
Next month, we are told, Inspector General Michael Horowitz will issue his report on how Mueller and his all-Democrat witch hunters came to be.
I am counting the seconds….and genuinely wondering how mainstream media will reconcile his findings with their determined effort to bury news about this scandal – such as what you read above from Mr. Re and Ms. Herridge – until now.
What kind of explanation will they try to foist on us? I honestly can’t come up with anything that even remotely would sound credible.
