Here's some advice. If you don't want people to call you a liar, then don't lie!
An examination of the George Papadopolous explanation for its Russia-Trump collusion investigation shows that the public evidence doesn’t fit the FBI’s story.
Revisiting the Schiff memo reveals two additional points of note: The memo states “individuals linked to Russia” “took interest in Papadopoulos as a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser.” While Papadopoulos would later admit these facts in his Statement of Offense, how did the FBI know these facts on July 31, 2016 (or in October 2016, when the DOJ sought the initial FISA application for Carter Page)? The first FBI interview of Papadopoulos, according to court documents, occurred in January 2017.
Many things have been going on in the FBI in recent years, and they haven’t all been about investigating criminals.
The biggest story has been how the bureau has become a weapon against President Trump. That’s according to Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer-winning investigative reporter who exposed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam in 1969 and has more knowledge of journalism’s biggest stories over the years than almost anyone.
“I’m telling you, it’s the missed story of all time.”
But don’t take my word for it. Just yesterday, John D. O’Connor, the lawyer who revealed the identity of Watergate’s “Deep Throat,” wrote a piece for the Daily Caller about the politicisation of the FBI under James Comey, its disgraced director who was fired by President Trump last May. “Recent revelations,” O’Connor writes, “show, chillingly, that he [Comey] involved the FBI in what appears to have been a plot to entrap, and even frame, a political opponent and his campaign regarding Russian collusion. This radical politicisation of the Bureau makes any Nixonian scheme seem like child’s play. Nixon shamefully tricked the FBI into doing a routine background check on his enemy, journalist Daniel Schorr. Comey outdid Nixon by a wide margin, using his FBI to construct a false case of possible treason against a political enemy.”
Comey knew that the Steele dossier was opposition research trash, but premised an investigation on it. After originally failing, without the false dossier, to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil the Trump campaign, he used the Dossier to obtain FBI warrants to eavesdrop on an opponent he had admittedly loathed. Rather than separating his bureau from Steele, Comey agreed to hire him, pulling out of the deal only because Steele became vulnerable as a proven leaker and liar. Comey’s entire leadership team, including number-two man Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence chief Strzok and legal counsel Lisa Page, all seemed to have been involved in framing Trump, working with partisan CIA Director John Brennan. When Strzok was being candid with his lover Page, he later resisted joining the Special Counsel’s Russian probe because he knew “there was no there there.” Did Comey inform Rosenstein of the vacuity of the charges on which the appointment of Mueller was based? We doubt it.
