Months before a whistleblower complaint that would spark the Democrat effort for impeachment, a shadowy liberal group founded and staffed by Obama administration alums and former Democrat congressional staffers launched an outside investigation into whether President Trumps allies were seeking foreign interference from Ukraine in the 2020 elections.
The group, American Oversight, began investigating the issue in May more than two months before the whistleblower filed a complaint alleging Trump was using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country to investigate one of the Presidents main domestic political rivals.
The groups purpose is to file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits requesting official documents from the administration that could be used to bolster Democrat congressional investigations, and its actions on Ukraine show Congress began looking for Ukraine-related dirt on the administration before the whistleblower filed his complaint that catalyzed impeachment.
American Oversight claims to be the top Freedom of Information Act litigator investigating the Trump administration.
In anticipation of Democrats winning back the House in 2018, it launched a Parallel Investigations Initiative in April to reinforce congressional investigations of the Trump administration. It said in a statement:
Today, American Oversight announces the Parallel Investigations Initiative to lay the groundwork for this potential surge in congressional oversight activity. We have begun proactively tracking oversight requests made by both the chairs and ranking members of key congressional committees and, in many cases, weve already submitted parallel FOIA requests for the same information.
The Trump administration wont know what hit them. Independent FOIA litigation paired with aggressive congressional oversight creates a nightmare for federal agencies because of the different levers litigants and members of Congress can pull to enforce their demands.

Deep State began digging for dirt early? Quelle surprise!
They weren’t investigating Trump so much as covering up for Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Schiff, et. al. All of this impeachment crap is an attempt to muddy the waters so that no accusations against that crowd will get any traction.
The Deep State really wants to keep anyone from looking at Ukraine....
The #1 donor to Hillary Clinton in 2016
Betting that bammy, with the help of soros’ money, started this false accusation with the full consent of the democrat party (pelosi).
They must have been spinning trying to clean up everything going all the way back to Cocaine Clinton in Mena.
One of those Strzok messages referred to “our Secret Society.”
I have never seen an explanation. Exactly WHO was in their Secret Society? I am sure McCabe knows because the reference occurred in a meeting with him.
They are actually over sighting America to make sure none of the numerous Deep State Obama crimes get uncovered.
So they went from “Trump colluded with Russia!” to “Trump colluded with Ukraine” without batting an eye. If this falls through, I bet they have “Trump colluded with Israel” warming up in a back room somewhere.
yep , none of this is political, they have been robbing us for decades, dummy corporations paid off, over and over related to policy...Comey and Mueller I am hearing also got money from aerospace contracts, just hear say, but I am sure its about the money and the swamp is full of thieves..
I bet that crew had a Fill in the blank form
Frickin David brock and melanie sloan are involved.
Obama being in office is the biggest crime of all because it is a violation of the Constitution itself.
Both parties cooperated to violate the Constitution.
The first two witnesses that should be called in the Senate impeachment are the whistle blower and Adam Schiff. Let them be grilled under oath in open hearings about their collusion to create this impeachment article. Bring back the State Department gang to be grilled that all their testimony was hearsay and bring the tin soldier to be grilled about his illegal leaking to the whistle blower. The public will quickly see the whole impeachment was a sham
