JUST IN: FBI FINALLY SHOWED IT’S REAL FACE AT FRONT OF THE ENTIRE NATION! In this post, you have the opportunity to see how is this ‘political struggle’ going to take another ‘form’, after the Judiciary Committee found out WHO IS FBI PAYING TO INVESTIGATE THE PRESIDENT-SICK!
Here’s a fascinating point that seems to have gotten lost in the look at spying on President Donald Trump.
Why did the FBI offer to pay Christopher Steele for investigating Trump, Steele who had previously been paid by the Clinton team to investigate Trump?
How do you have an FBI under a Democratic administration trying to “3rd party investigate” a political opponent?
Chuck Grassley is determined to find out.
From Washington Examiner:
Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding the story behind the FBI’s reported plan to pay the author of a lurid and unsubstantiated dossier on candidate Donald Trump. In particular, Grassley appears to be zeroing in on the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, indicating Senate investigators want to learn more about McCabe’s role in a key aspect of the Trump-Russia affair.
Grassley began his investigation after the Washington Post reported on February 28 that the FBI, “a few weeks before the election,” agreed to pay former British spy Christopher Steele to investigate Trump.
Hillary Clinton supporters had actually paid Steele to investigate Trump before the FBI began talking with him.
So immediately that raises interesting questions too. Was there any communication between the Clinton team and the FBI with regard to Steele?
In the end, the FBI ended up not paying Steele after media attention to the dossier.
“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” Grassley wrote in a letter to Comey dated March 28.
Grassley wants all the documents and decisions as to how this happened and who in the FBI made the decisions. His focus seems to be on Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Grassley noted that McCabe is already under investigation by the FBI‘s inspector general for playing a top role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation even though McCabe’s wife accepted nearly $700,000 in political donations arranged by a close Clinton friend, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, for her run for state senate in Virginia.
“While Mr. McCabe recused himself from public corruption cases in Virginia…he failed to recuse himself from the Clinton email investigation,” Grassley wrote, “despite the appearance of a conflict created by his wife’s campaign accepting $700,000 from a close Clinton associate during the investigation.”
Given that, if McCabe were involved in making decisions or having anything to do with getting “Democrat-funded opposition research” to justify investigating Trump, that could be an even greater problem, as Grassley observes.
Grassley asks some great questions in his letter, trying to ferret out what was happening and what involvement McCabe may have had.
Important questions that others, including the media, should also be asking…
People of America, the time has come. Now we all see how the liberal deep state works. We see that this is a strong system, full of career politicians and suspicious people, with disgusting alues and background.
