Skip to comments.Of course the FBI spied on the Trump campaign

The great debate about whether the FBI spied on the Trump campaign continues. The question is why there is still any argument. The newly-released report from Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz shows that by any definition the FBI did indeed spy.
The proof is in the details of the report. In addition to the much-discussed wiretap of Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, Horowitz discussed the bureau's use of what is called a CHS -- a confidential human source, or, in more common terms, an informant, and a UCE -- an undercover employee, or a secret agent, to gather information from at least three targets in the Trump campaign. One was Page, another was George Papadopoulos, also a member of the advisory team, and the third was an unnamed "high-level Trump campaign official who was not a subject of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation."
Horowitz described "multiple CHS operations undertaken by the Crossfire Hurricane team." There were "numerous CHS interactions with Page and Papadopoulos." There was the CHS contact with the high-level campaign official. And then there were "additional CHSs" who attempted to contact Papadopoulos but did not succeed.
All the meetings and conversations were secretly recorded by the FBI. Some were also monitored live, as they happened, by agents and supervisors. The Horowitz report quoted liberally from transcripts of the recordings.
The Trump campaign was "clearly spied upon," attorney general Bill Barr said in an interview with NBC Tuesday. "I mean, that's what electronic surveillance is. I think wiring people up to go in and talk to people and make recordings of their conversations is spying."

.......there are dozens of memos that make up an actual diary of moment-by-moment events, during the FBI
investigation of Donald Trump (as candidate and as president), documented by Obama’s FBI Director Comey......
SOURCE: CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE | 4/9/2019 | SUNDANCE / FR Posted by bitt
A late day submission to DC Circuit Court in a FOIA case reveals the content of previously
unknown James Comey memos. Obama’s entire anti-Trump operation is memorialized in writing:
<><> how Obamas FBI Director James Comey wrote down the sources and code-names assigned;
<><> how confidential sources engaged with FISA coverage initiated by Obama’s FBI;
<><> naming foreign governments assisting Obama and Hillary with their vile efforts;
<><> and the rollout plans for Obama’s phony investigation.....”by the book.”
During her ill-fated campaign Hillary bragged about foreign governments supporting her election.
Are these the same foreign governments Comey had assisting their efforts to frame Trump? (smirk)
Hmmmmmmmm.......that would mean Obama, Comey and Hillary were colluding with foreign governments.
The following might be the MO HRC used to hide information obtained through illegal surveillance.
Then-Secy Clinton signed a June 28, 2011 official correspondence advising all State Department employees that, due to recent targeting of personal e-mail accounts by online adversaries, State employees should avoid conducting official Department business from (their) personal e-mail accounts.
In other words, Clinton absolved herself from FOIA exposure to a greater degree.
Hacks were not infrequent occurrences with State Department IG Steven Linick writing in one email: May 13, 2011 2:28 am Huma Phil Rein potential hack.
Clinton is involved in the cover-up of multiple felonies.

SOME OF HILLARYS CRIMES
-Gross negligence in handling T/S SCI data.
-Directing the mishandling of T/S SCI data onto non-secure systems.
-Storing T/S SCI data on personal servers and devices.
-Lying to Congress regarding these violations.
-Facilitating the transfer of critical nuclear material to an adversary for personal gain.
-Laundering money through a charitable foundation for personal use.
-Income Tax evasion.
-Conspiracy to implement each of the above charges.
-An unexplained $6billion missing from the State Dept under her tenure.
(HAT TIP DETECTIVE)
<><> Deliberately and illegally destroying over 30,000 records that were under subpoena.
<><> Perjury, including repeatedly lying to the FBI and Congress.
<><> Directly causing the murder of four Americans.
<><> Selling national security secrets to foreign countries.
<><> Misappropriating disaster relief for Haiti.
The USA is dead. It just hasnt gotten the memo. They cant do what they have done and just get away with it. Not while I am alive.
What did Obama know, and when did he know it?
The first person called to appear at John Durhams grand jury should be John Podesta.
We are still missing a huge piece of the Spygate puzzle: the CIA. Hopefully, Durham is able to get to the bottom of that but I suspect at this point a lot of evidence has been destroyed and CYA stories constructed. The time for this investigation was 2017 but that didn’t happen because Rip Van Sessions happened.
wiring people up and having them record conversations with Trump staffers, and getting several FISA warrants, is pretty convincing that the campaign was spied on. Anyone who says otherwise is delusional at best and an outright liar at worse.
Horowitz reveals that Carter Page worked for the CIA.
York and others are missing the obvious:
Carter Page, CIA informant, was placed with the Trump campaign, almost certainly by direction of the CIA.
The CIA used Carter Page either to directly report on the campaign, to influence the campaign, to provide the opening for FBI surveillance of the campaign, or to embarrass the campaign by exploiting Page’s known interactions (on CIA’s behalf) with Russians.
Why has there been no effort to nail the CIA for this operation?
Nice try troll.
Boy, if the FIB were monitoring FR for anti-governemnt posts, you'd win the prize. CNN could falsely quote you as representative of this fine forum. Are you Russian, Chinese or Iranian?
We are in a civil war that is being waged at the highest levels of government. While not as obvious, we do have a press of our own, right here, at Lucianne, Zerohedge, Infowars, Bongino, the Twitter ghetto, Gab, and thedonald.win if you haven’t been there. It is significant.
Because you stated, “Hopefully Russia would take over leadership functions in the US after 2024 when trump is gone . . .”
Michelle Obama Vowed to Never Forgive Donald Trump for Questioning Husbands Birth Certificate
Breitbart ^ | 9/11/18 | Charlie Spiering / FR Posted on 11/10/2018, 3:10:20 AM by LoicW
First Lady Michelle Obama reveals in her upcoming memoir that she vowed never to forgive President Donald Trump for questioning her husbands birth certificate. Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my familys safety at risk. And for this Id never forgive him, she wrote in her book, according to the Washington Post.
Trump famously challenged Obamas birth certificate until the president released a copy of his long-form document in April 2011 at a press conference. (Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
