Elder Patriot – Two Fusion GPS executives appeared before the House Judiciary Committee, yesterday. Both refused to answer even a single question that was posed to them, choosing instead to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Fusion GPS was the private firm originally hired by political enemies of Donald Trump to dig up dirt on him during his campaign for president.
Fusion GPS had published the dossier of uncorroborated and defamatory allegations about Trump that has since been discredited. GPS Executives Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan essentially admitted as much when they sat mute rather than defend the dossier and Fusion GPS.
The significance is that the libelous dossier that was ordered by craven political opponents of Trump was a key piece of evidence that the Obama administration used to convince a FISA court to grant permission to Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch and her minion, then-F.B.I. Director James Comey to conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign.
And guess who hand delivered that dossier? It was John McCain himself, champion of the Deep State, Globalist, and all-around scumbag.
Christopher Steele was the author of the trumped-up document (sorry for the pun it was unintentional.) Steele had served as a British MI6 agent before founding Fusion GPS once he realized how much money could be made providing “intelligence,” whether based in fact or not, to willing buyers.
This has spurred Charles Grassley, head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to send a letter to current F.B.I. Director Robert Wray asking him if the Obama administration had used a British Intelligence report to bolster the Obama Justice Department’s case before the FISA court as though the Brits had independently confirmed the contents of the dossier when in fact the Brits were relying on the same bogus report that Steele passed to his allies at MI6.
When asked his opinion on this emerging scenario, former United States Attorney Joseph DiGenova said the implications of using an unsubstantiated dossier to convince the FISA court that it was solidly verified evidence would be “staggering.”
DiGenova, who has previously called James Comey a “dirty cop” based on conversations with sources he has maintained within the F.B.I., said that once proven, these allegations would reveal “a type of manipulation of intelligence data and false intelligence data to mislead a court. It’s staggering in terms of its implications.”
The former U.S. attorney said the Obama administration’s use of unproven allegations before a FISA court “constitutes a crime of unbelievable dimensions. It requires the empanelment of a federal grand jury.”
Obama, his National Security Advisor Susan Rice, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch, his F.B.I. director James Comey, his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, his head of the CIA John Brennan were all complicit in lying to the FISA Court in a deliberate attempt to circumvent the balance of powers that exist to protect Americans from an out of control branch of government.
Their motivation was simple: protect themselves and their allies from being outed for the corrupt, anti-America, globalist thieves that they are. In other words, they feared candidate Trump’s declaration that he would “Drain the Swamp.”
And it all started with that disgusting troll from Arizona, John McCain.
