(Tea Party PAC) – This week, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch released new documents showing that Hillary Clinton supporters and donors in Obama’s State Department worked tirelessly to improperly disseminate classified information to several Senators just before Trump’s inauguration.
This classified information contained raw intelligence that supposedly indicated Russian interference in the 2016 election (but we’ve all heard that before.)
Included in the Senators who received these classified documents were Mark Warner (D-VA), Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Robert Corker (R-TN).
From Judicial Watch:
A January 13, 2017, email from Hera Abbasi, a former congressional advisor in the State Department’s Bureau of Legislative Affairs, suggests that the intelligence community was providing “raw intel” to Sen. Warner. Such an exchange almost certainly would have been coordinated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI): “Yes, that is correct. Warner/raw intel stuff is going thru IC channels.” (Abbasi previously worked in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and was a 2017 Next Generation National Security Fellow at the liberal Center for a New American Security. Abbasi donated $725 to the Clinton campaign and Act Blue during the 2016 election cycle.)
The documents uncovered by Judicial Watch show early in the process of gathering and clearing classified information – beginning a day after Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) formally asked Attorney General John Kerry for “intelligence products” and “raw intelligence” on Russian involvement in the 2016 election – Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield brings Senior Advisor and Investigations Counsel Zachary Schram into the loop in a January 5, 2017, email chain, in which she says Schram would help “figure out the best way to get these to the Hill.” Frifield was an Obama appointee who previously served as Maryland Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski’s Chief of Staff. (Frifield contributed $2,700 to the 2016 Clinton campaign.)
On January 11, 2017, former State Department Senior Congressional Advisor Katherine Harris sends an email to Abbasi; Naz Durakoglu, who was a senior advisor to the Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs; Kathleen Kavalec, and others: “If we are not going through our standard CDP [Collection Due Process] process, others in H need to weigh in on how to move these to the Hill.”
“These documents show how the Obama State Department, staffed by Clinton donors, improperly, and perhaps illegally, rushed classified information to their anti-Trump allies in the U.S. Senate,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Obama State Department was central to the conspiracy to smear President Trump with Russiagate lies and innuendo. The Justice Department must expand any Spygate criminal investigation to include this agency.”
Obama State Dept, staffed by Clinton donors, improperly, and perhaps illegally, rushed classified info to anti-@RealDonaldTrump allies in U.S. Senate. State Dept central to conspiracy to smear Trump. DOJ must act! https://t.co/XXff8Npf4w

This all confirms everything we already know about how hard the Obama administration was working to try to lay the groundwork for their attempted coup.
When the phony Russia narrative failed to prevent Trump from winning the election, they set about trying to ensure it would get him impeached, which it didn’t.
Every day we get closer to seeing indictments for these crimes, but every day that passes without seeing these crooks in prison is one day too much!
