(National Sentinel):Â Deep State: Conservative pundit and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said during an appearance onÂ Fox News‘ “Outnumbered” program earlier today that the infamous “Trump dossier” scandal was about ready to “burst.”
“Itâ€™s the most explosive scandalâ€¦ Itâ€™s getting ready to burst,” Bongino noted on the program.
He added that an upcoming Department of Justice Office of Inspector General report detailing corruption behind the unsubstantiated dossier in its use to justify spying on President Donald J. Trump’s campaign is set for release.
Bongino went on to note that special counsel Robert Mueller’s recent acquisition of Trump transition documents — in whichÂ thousands of privileged emails belonging to the team were obtained, some say illegally, by Mueller — is a smokescreen.
He said that Mueller’s investigators, who are conducting a probe “into the most consequential counterintelligence operation” in recent member — the Trump spying — should have obtained a search warrant for the transition documents.
When asked byÂ Fox News host Harris Faulkner why that did’t happen, Bongino said it’s because the Russian collusion narrative “is a hoax.”
“We’re asking the wrong question here,” the former federal agent said. “The question de jure has been, ‘Was the dossier used to get a warrant on Trump?’ Wrong question. Important question, but the wrong one.”
Rather, Bongino continued, “the real question is, ‘Why get a warrant at all?’ Why was the Trump team being spied on?
“Nobody has pointed out one single predicate crime to point out why Donald Trump’s team was being spied on, not one,” he continued.
