(National Sentinel)Â Dirty Deal: Former Secret Service agent and outspoken conservative advocate Dan Bongino said Sunday it is possible that Democrats and the Obama administration created the so-called “Trump dossier” in order to cover up improper spying on the campaign of President Donald J. Trump.
In fact, he said onÂ Fox News, the dossier — the foundation of the “Russian collusion” narrative — may be nothing more than an “insurance policy” to protect key figures.
During his appearance, Bongino was asked about FBI agent Peter Strzok’s comment in a text he sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page regarding an “insurance policy” to keep Trump out of office.
In mid-December,Â Fox News reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: â€œText-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): â€œI want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andyâ€™s office-that thereâ€™s no way he gets elected-but Iâ€™m afraid we canâ€™t take that risk.Itâ€™s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 youâ€™re 40.â€

The Daily Caller reported further:
Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.
During his “Fox & Friends” appearance, Bongino offered his own explanation for what Strzok’s comment really means.
“I think America needs to prepare itself for the idea that this entire thing was a sting against the Trump team the entire time and that the dossier was just cover for it,” he said.
Trump has repeatedly insisted there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russian government. Multiple investigations of the allegation have turned up nothing after more than a year-and-a-half. Congressional committees are still investigating the allegations.
In back-and-forth with reporters at Camp David over the weekend, where Trump spent a retreat with GOP lawmakers, he insisted there is evidence of collusion between the Democratic National Committee, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and operatives within the Obama administration of colluding with Russian sources against the Trump campaign.
“But you guys don’t cover that,” Trump admonished.
The Department of Justice has opened an investigation into the Clinton Foundation’s dealings with foreign donors and others as they relate to the approval of the Uranium One deal, among other things.
