(Tea Party PAC) – All the pieces are slowly starting to fall into place. If there is any justice left in Washington DC, we will soon get the answers, and the justice, we’ve long been waiting for.
On Thursday, investigative journalist John Solomon obtained memos which provided damning proof that the FBI was well aware the Steele dossier was bunk before using it to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec met with former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was hired by Fusion GPS to put together the phony dossier to help out the HIllary Clinton campaign in 2016.
Kavalec determined that Steele’s “dirt” on Trump was inaccurate and that he had also likely leaked it to the media.
She then flagged this in memos and handwritten notes just 10 days before the FISA warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page was granted.
The FBI and the State Department knew that Steele’s dossier was fraudulent before using it as support to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Page, which would have given them the ability to spy on Trump by proxy.
After Solomon’s bombshell report, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham sent letters to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the DOJ asking for information on communications between Kavalec and Steele.
Sen. Graham asked Secretary of State Pompeo to make Kavalec available for a transcribed interview.
Via Free Republic:
WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today sent letters to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz regarding communications between a State Department official and Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier used to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to surveil Trump campaign officials.
It was recently revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request that Steele met with then-State Department official Kathleen Kavalec ten days prior to the issuance of the initial Carter Page FISA warrant and told her that he was “keen to see this information [the dossier] come to light prior to November 8,” the date of the 2016 presidential election.
“This important information further demonstrates the bias of the primary source of material that was the basis for the Carter Page FISA warrant,” Graham wrote.
Chairman Graham requested:
– All documents and communications on or after May 1, 2016 between State Department and DOJ employees or officials relating to Christopher Steele, the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, or anyone associated with the Trump campaign.
– The State Department make Ms. Kavalec available for a transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee.
– DOJ Inspector General Horowitz consider this new information as he continues to investigate potential FISA warrant abuse.
