(National Sentinel)Â High Crimes:Â Those who have followed details of the still-developing Spygate scandal, in which the Obama administration used a politicized Justice Department and FBI against a rival presidential campaign, have long suspected that there was Russian â€œcollusionâ€ alright, but not between Moscow and the 2016 Trump campaign.
To the contrary, the available evidence suggested there was a pretty clear connection between the campaign of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and elements of the Russian government. In fact, the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.,Â has said as much publicly.
Now, thanks toÂ The Hillâ€™s John Solomon,Â new details have emergedÂ that essentially prove the point that Democrats, not the Trump campaign, were not only involved with Russians during the 2016 campaign, but were very much a part of creating the phony â€œTrump-Russia collusionâ€ narrative:
This is a paragraph of content.
Congressional investigators have confirmed that a top FBI official met with Democratic Party lawyers to talk about allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion weeks before the 2016 election, and before the bureau secured a search warrant targeting Trumpâ€™s campaign.
Former FBI general counsel James Baker met during the 2016 season with at least one attorney from Perkins Coie, the Democratic National Committeeâ€™s private law firm.
Thatâ€™s the firm used by the DNC andÂ Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign toÂ secretly pay research firmÂ Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative, to compile a dossier of uncorroborated raw intelligence alleging Trump and Moscow were colluding to hijack the presidential election.
You may recall that the dossier was then utilized by the FBI as justification to obtain FISA court warrants against Trump campaign adviser and top 10 percent Naval Academy graduate Carter Page, the last one of which was signed by current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Solomon, citing an unnamed source, said that the information regarding the DNC/FBI connection was confirmed via â€œcontemporaneous evidenceâ€ as well as testimony obtained via a joint probe by the House Judiciary Committee and the House Government Oversight Committee.
â€œThis is a bombshell that unequivocally shows the real collusion was between the FBI and Donald Trumpâ€™s opposition â€” the DNC, Hillary, and a Trump-hating British intel officer â€” to hijack the election, rather than some conspiracy between Putin and Trump,â€Â a source told Solomon.
If accurate, and thereâ€™s no reason to think itâ€™s not, it means the FBI was more corrupt than previously thought under the â€œleadershipâ€ of fired Director James Comey. It also means the FBI was well aware of where the dossier came from and who paid for/produced it (as political opposition research).
The revelation follows news that Baker was deposed by House investigators behind closed doors on Wednesday. AsÂ The National SentinelÂ reported, he offered â€œexplosiveâ€ testimony in regards to the â€œabnormalâ€ handling of the FBIâ€™s Trump campaign investigation.
â€œSome of the things that were shared were explosive in nature,â€ Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., toldÂ Fox News. â€œThis witness confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. Thatâ€™s extremely troubling.â€
The network also reported that Baker had a very close working relationship with Comey, meaning the fired FBI director had to have known all of these details. Perhaps thatâ€™s why heÂ preemptively decided to let Hillary Clinton off the hookÂ for blatant violations of national security statutes via her serial mishandling of classified emails.
Solomon reported that Baker told investigators the Perkins Coie attorney who reached out to him was Michael Sussman, a former Justice Department lawyer.
In addition, Bakerâ€™s information â€œbroke new groundâ€ regarding the FBIâ€™s use of the media in 2016 and 2017 to reinforce the Russian collusion lie, as well as Rosensteinâ€™s spring 2017 conversations aboutÂ wearing a wire to record POTUS Trump.
