Another bombshell was revealed on Tuesday when newly released congressional testimony showed that Robert Mueller’s top pit bull Deputy Andrew Weissmann was advised in August 2016 that the debunked Trump/Steele dossier was garbage. This raises questions on how the garbage was compiled and handled by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
That’s how early the top dog on Mueller’s team knew that the dossier was bullschtein, yet they shared it among senior FBI and DOJ officials anyway, going so far as to use the garbage dossier to obtain a FISA warrant, lying to the court about the dossier since they never verified it, which is required by law.
“From Fox News:
DOJ official Bruce Ohr was asked about such briefings during a closed-door interview with House lawmakers in August 2018. In the interview, details of which have only recently emerged, Fox News has learned that Ohr revealed he met with Weissmann and other DOJ officials shortly after a July 30, 2016 breakfast meeting with former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele, in the run-up to the presidential election. Ohr told congressional investigators that his contact with Steele included “specific information related to the Russian Government’s attempt to interfere in the Presidential election,” as well as specific allegations “related to members of the Trump campaign and allegations of colluding with Russia.”
Weissmann is now a lead prosecutor on Mueller’s team in charge of the case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. At the time in 2016, he was chief of the DOJ Criminal Division’s Fraud Section.
During his testimony, Ohr said he stressed during the 2016 meetings — many of which took place before the Page surveillance warrant was obtained — the potential bias and conflicts associated with Steele and the dossier, which was commissioned by the Democrat National Committee and Clinton campaign and handled by opposition-research firm Fusion GPS. The surveillance warrant application drew on the unverified Trump dossier.
Here’s everything in a nutshell. The Democrats knew Hillary Clinton’s campaign was in trouble. The top-ranking officials of the Obama DOJ, FBI, and some in the intelligence community set out to help Hillary and cause Trump to lose the 2016 election. They were willing to use the powers of their offices to take Trump down, but they quickly realized that they couldn’t do the things they wanted to do out in the open. There were too many other workers in DOJ and FBI that would find out what they were up to, so they had to come up with a way to do their dirty deeds in secret.
That’s when they got the idea to get into the FISA system, which is a secretive system, meaning, they could still use the tools of their respective organizations, but in a secretive manner that nobody outside of their group would ever find out about. To get into the FISA system, they had to be able to convince a judge to grant a FISA warrant. With a FISA warrant, they would have the authority to operate within the secretive FISA system.
They had to come up with a good case to fool a FISA judge to sign off on a warrant. The FBI had used a man by the name of Carter Page in the past. Page did business in Russia, and many times in the past the FBI asked him to find out certain things for them during his trips to Russia for business. Page always agreed and was debriefed when he got back. Page is a patriot.
So, the Obama DOJ and FBI slime balls threw Page under the bus when they found out that he had temporarily worked for the Trump campaign. They took the phony dossier into a FISA court and used it as the main piece of evidence to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page. The judge was lied to by the DOJ and FBI officials, and he signed off on the warrant.
Now that they had a FISA warrant they were able to operate in complete secrecy. That’s why it’s so important to understand that the DOJ and FBI knew from the very beginning that the Trump/Steele dossier was a piece of garbage. It shows they behaved with reckless abandon in their efforts to stop Trump, first from winning the election, and then from finishing his term as president.
Everyone who signed the FISA warrant and the multiple extension requests, and those involved in the attempted government coup, should all be arrested, charged and thrown in prison for what they did.
