Skip to comments.'Horrible': Clinton loyalists exploited Obama's FBI to spread Russia conspiracy stories about Trump
Posted on 04/15/2019 9:39:15 AM PDT by Red Badger
Hillary Clinton loyalists fed the FBIs upper echelon an assortment of anti-Donald Trump criminal accusations during the 2016 campaign and his presidency, according to a string of interview transcripts released in recent weeks.
James A. Baker, former FBI general counsel who participated on the receiving end, testified that the situation was horrible and highly unusual.
At least 10 of Mrs. Clintons supporters directly or via middlemen told the bureau tales about Russia-Trump conspiracies. It appears to be an unprecedented effort by a presidential campaign and the party in power to count on the FBI to knock out the other partys candidate and president.
The transcripts create the picture of an FBI not always following expected norms as it activated an unofficial conveyor belt to make sure the allegations reached the counterintelligence division. It opened an investigation into the Trump campaign on July 31, 2016. In October, it began wiretapping at least one Republican while dispatching possibly multiple undercover sources to spy.
In the end, the Democratic Party-financed charges fell flat. Special counsel Robert Mueller reported last month that his 22-month investigation failed to establish a Trump-Russia conspiracy to interfere in the election by computer hacking and social media trolling.

I’ll ask again;
WHAT DID PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP OBSTRUCT???????????????
Subordinates take the fall for hitlary and nobama because the option Ft. Marcy Park?
It infuriates me when an article talks about surveilling Carter Page without mentioning the two hop rule. Most people have no idea that surveillance power even exists much less that it could be used legally on Trumps entire circle of associates.
Further proof that the MSM fake news was in on the scandal, They are now forced to show their losing hand.
Journalism is dead, make way for the new "Ministry of Truth" style propaganda bureau of the democrat party that is our enemy
This is STILL thee best election ever!
This is hilarious. McCabe, Stzrok and Page had to meet with 0bungler to keep him informed and I’m supposed to believe Hillary took advantage of him!? Hogwash.
Yoda grew a ‘stache!
Wait, “Kung Fu”.....O.K.....
So if it was so horrible, why didn’t he blow the whistle right then and there? Methinks he doth protest too little, too late.
In my best Maxwell Smart voice...
Missed it by THAT much.
How about THIS? :
For the left, the primary purpose of government power is
self enrichment and
the secondary purpose of government is
to grow and consolidate that power.
I WANT ONE!.......................
He OBSTRUCTED HILLARY FROM BECOMING PRESIDENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..................
That’s battle royale I would pay to see.
Red, you always make me laugh out loud!!!!!
