Much is already known about how the DOJ/FBI/Hillary/Russia/FusionGPS CONSPIRED amongst each other to Help Hillary/Hurt Trump BEFORE the 2016
I'll start with the first sentence.
If this was what happened then why didn't the Hillary Campaign share the Dossier and it's contents before the election?
Why wait until well after the election to Make Christopher Steele's research public?
Also, why did Comey refuse to publicly announce that there was an open investigation into the Trump Campaign and Russia BEFORE election day?
First,details of the dossier were released before the election.
In fact, the mother jones article that sourced christopher steele was released in late october 2016 (before the election). This is what steele
"fired" from the fbi.
In addition, CIA director brennan had also leaked info to harry reid before the election on August 27, 2016.
So you are actually incorrect, the dossier and its details were being spread around to both the media and Trumps opponents before the election.
Now as to the question why did comey not release that there was an investigation before the election.
For the same reason he did release info on reopening the Hillary investigation.
He admitted why; he thought Hillary was a shoe in to win.
Thus he sought to position himself better by making himself look legitimate, and in his own words he was seeking to avoid people questioning Hillary
in her early days as President.
He just miscalculated.
Think of it, had he released details of an investigation claiming trump was colluding with russians, and hillary won, they would have been forced to
carry the investigation forward and prove those allegations (which as we are now seeing, is not going to happen). All the while people would have
been claiming that if the FBi couldnt prove trump russia collusion, they stole the election for Hillary.
However, if he keeps his mouth shut, and Hillary wins, then all of the details iof the investigation become meaningless and it just fades away.
In that world, do you think all of the evidence we are now seeing from places like the article in the OP would have ever seen the light of day? Of
The trump russia investigation in my opinion was used for two things.
First, it was used to get details on the trump campaign that could be fed to Obama's intel team and by proxy Hillarys team, sort of like an ultra
version of Nixons people breaking in to the watergate. And if they found something really dirty on trump, it would have been used. Otherwise, well
at least the got the benefit of having ears on trumps teams communications about strategies in the election.
The second reason for the investigation was admitted by peter strzok, it was an "insurance policy". Even though they were almost positive of Hillary
winning, they needed to make sure in the very unlikely event she lost, they had some sort of leverage over trump to make sure he couldnt really go
rogue and usurp the intel agencies power.
And so, viola, and investigation that continues to this day, that hasnt even come close to proving even a shred of evidence of trump russian
collusion. But it allowed them to raid his lawyers office and have their media friends smear trump with it 24/7. (in case you question they are
friends with the media, isnt it odd that Brennan and clapper now work for media companies that hate trump)
And as more info comes out of the abuse of the intel community, the squealing from people like Brennan is getting louder.
But you seem reasonable, so I am sure you will want all of Ohr's messages to be declassified which will surely prove his and the intel communities
