After it was discovered last week that a key source behind the Steele Dossier was charged for lying to the FBI, shocking new developments have come out that President Obama knew about Hillary Clinton’s plan to paint Trump as a Russian agent. “I’m going to say, not only the FBI, Comey and Strzok and McCabe ought to be very worried about Durham’s investigation. I’m going to say Brennan and Clapper, remember they were the ones that actually briefed Obama about the entire plot from Hillary Clinton to try and paint Donald Trump with Russia. There’s got to be some accountability.” said Rep. Doug Collins, the former ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee on Fox News this morning.
During the last days of Obama’s presidency, it was revealed last year that his administration approved FISA warrants that allowed them to spy on Trump’s campaign team during the 2016 elections. Kevin Clinesmith, one of the agents who filed said FISA warrant, was under investigation for criminal charges for altering the FISA warrant used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. During the investigation, Michael Flynn was investigated for communicating with the Russian government while on Trump’s transition team. After ex-FBI Director James Comey came to the conclusion that their communications were legitimate, then Vice President Joe Biden recommended charging him with violating the Logan Act.
Today, Rep. Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, admitted that he did not regret pushing the now discredited Steele Dossier. “I don’t regret saying that we should investigate claims of someone who, frankly, was a well-respected British intelligence officer,” “And we couldn’t have known, of course, years ago that we would learn years later that someone who is a primary source lied to him.” Schiff said on NBC’s Meet the Press.
