Elder Patriot – One month ago we reported that the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Devin Nunes was turning the focus of the committee’s FISA abuse investigation to the role the State Department played in advancing the phony Steele dossier. That dossier was the central piece of evidence used to justify conducting a host of illegalities against Donald Trump.
Our article followed an early February op-ed in the Washington Post written by longtime Clinton sycophant, Jonathan Winer that was intended to save himself. In the process, the admissions Winer made in that editorial implicated a whole slew of Obama and Clinton loyalists and appointees.
Now investigative reporter Sara Carter has discovered that the HPSCI investigation is leading straight to former Obama Secretary of State, John Kerry:
“The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign.”
“… it was in February when questions surfaced regarding Kerry’s possible involvement or knowledge of the dossier.”
Kerry’s involvement was almost a certainty considering he was running the State Department.
Winer led investigators straight to Kerry when he wrote in that op-ed, “in 2013, I returned to the State Department at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, whom I had previously served as Senate counsel.”
Since that original op-ed, House Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley had sent a criminal referral to both the DOJ and the FBI requesting a criminal inquiry be opened into Christopher Steele – the author of the phony dossier that served as the primary article of evidence used to defraud the FISC into granting a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign – for potential violations of 18 U.S. Code § 1001.
In his referral, Grassley cited evidence that several Clinton allies, who were also connected to the State Department, had a hand in the dossier including Sidney Blumenthal, a close confidant of Hillary Clinton, and Cody Shearer, a former journalist who went on to work for the Clintons. Both appeared to be feeding Steele information.
The longer this goes on the more Democrats are being tied to the Clinton-Obama criminal syndicate. You’d think that at least one Democrat would have the good sense to jump ship before they go down with it.
The fact that no one has makes one wonder just how true the accounts of Clinton’s “body count” really are.
