Alarming – Robert Mueller Blocks Congressional Oversight of FBI Involvement in Trump Surveillance…
Posted on September 28, 2017 by sundance

The Weaponized Administrative State is Protecting Itself

A report from Reuters highlights the DOJ and FBI refusing to hand over documents related to the Steele Dossier on candidate Donald Trump, and the FBI (Via James Comey) involvement in assembling the content therein. However, the lede is buried in paragraph four of the article.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department and the FBI are resisting demands from a Republican lawmaker to hand over documents about a former British spy’s dossier on purported Russian support for Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign, because the FBI has its own open criminal investigation, officials said.

The U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas in August seeking “any and all documents” about both agencies’ dealings with former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, according to a letter seen by Reuters from committee chairman Devin Nunes, a Trump supporter.

Steele compiled the so-called Trump dossier, which Trump was told by FBI director James Comey contained salacious material about the businessman-turned president. Trump and his associates have said the dossier’s contents were false.

Law enforcement and congressional officials said that the Justice Department and the FBI were reluctant to comply with the demand for documents as the FBI had its own probe, under the supervision of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, into U.S. allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign to tilt the November election in Trump’s favor.

This is genuinely much more alarming that might initially appear on first review. In essence the FBI is protecting itself from inquiry into unlawful conduct of the FBI.

This is very alarming. The whole fishing expedition was based on the fake dossier. As suspected Mueller is covering up for the dimoKKKRATS and Comey. This investigation is taking on a life of its own without oversight. Not good at all.

Nothing could be further from the truth......but I think you know that.

Here's something actually disturbing....the Russians were given access to the source code of the program guarding most military stuff:

Sounds like something that occurred during the Obama administration. By the way it has been reported that Mueller is going back 10-12 years on Manaforts tax returns. What does this have to do with the Trump/Russia collusion?

I didn't say Rump was to blame, not sure Oblahblah had any knowledge of it either...maybe.

The collusion is shaping up to be primarily manafort's work trying to clear about $16M is debts to Russians. Not sure what Rumps involvement is other than he and Manafort go back a long way and he too owes a lot of money to Russians......time will tell.

Election laws do. Dont focus on one word. Think "working with" and "conspiring"

Semantics wont prevent indictments.
