About that FBI ‘Source’

Post by 1989TransAm » Fri May 11, 2018 10:49 am

This story has been floating around for awhile now and the WSJ has picked up on it. Basically it says that the FBI planted a "spy" in the Trump campaign. Rumors have been flying that is was someone like Carter Paige. You will notice that after all the accusations against Carter including a FISA warrant nothing has happened to him. Some go so far as to suggest Jeff Sessions. :D Lots of implications here. Here is part of the WSJ article.

"The Department of Justice lost its latest battle... when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications...

Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation...
The bureau already has some explaining to do. Thanks to the... leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source”... who is a U.S. citizen and who was involved in the Russia collusion probe... we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person... to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.

This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about... Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials... Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign...

When? The bureau has been doggedly sticking with its story that a tip in July 2016 about the drunken ramblings of George Papadopoulos launched its counterintelligence probe... When precisely was the Steele dossier delivered to the FBI? When precisely did the Papadopoulos information come in?
And to the point, when precisely was this human source operating? Because if it was prior to that infamous Papadopoulos tip, then the FBI isn’t being straight. It would mean the bureau was spying on the Trump campaign prior to that moment. And that in turn would mean that the FBI had been spurred to act on the basis of something other than a junior campaign aide’s loose lips..."

Kimberly thinks she knows who it is. She might come out with it in the next week or so. This is one reason why Nunes and Gowdy went over to the DOJ yesterday.

From the Powerline. AN FBI INFORMANT IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN? (2)

"The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.

Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation. In a Thursday press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.

House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”
This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.

Sundance has identified the probable culprit as Stefan Halper. We shall see. :wink:

Pretty standard operating procedure for the fbi to try and get someone on the inside of a criminal organization.

One again great work by the men and women if the fbi. =D>

Read this this morning.

It will be interesting to see when the start date actually occurred. It's quite troubling that such a fine organization was weaponized by the prior administration to influence an election and now to try and take down a constitutionally elected President. Makes you wonder if this goes back to the 2012 election as well.

It sure does but how far, who knows. We know for a fact that ohBarry weaponized the IRS and had the Benghazi reports changed to an outright lie before the election.

Pretty much is showing the fbi is now a communist organization or at least doing the work for them.
I just want to know who can fix all this mess?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^The whole thing is unravelling. Even the judges are not putting up with this crap from Mueller.

One more thing. Even with the mole in the Trump campaign they have come up with nothing.

You've said this thing is unraveling many times for months now.

Seems like everytime we hear that, the investigation gets bigger and deeper and more crimes are found.

I will agree with draining the swamp. We may differ on which swamp needs to be drained though.
