BREAKING: Documents Expose Possible Coordination Between Obama White House, CIA & FBI On Trump Russia Investigation
It just keeps getting worse for the FBI and “scandal free” Obama Administration.
The Trump Russia investigation, which many skeptics question the legitimacy of, is continuing to go down in flames.
Now, congressional investigators believe there’s a possibility the Obama Administration had a role and influence in the roots of the FBI and CIA’s Trump Russia investigation.
Harry Reid reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to investigate Trump Russia allegations after a meeting with former CIA Directpr John Brennan.
Fox News reports:
The investigators say the information provided to Fox News “strongly” suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan — which they say would “contradict” the Obama administration’s public stance about its hand in the process.
“We are not making conclusions. What we are saying is that the timeline is concerning enough to warrant the appointment of an independent investigator to look at whether or not the Obama White House was involved [in the Trump-Russia investigation],” a GOP congressional source told Fox News.
The congressional investigators pointed out to Fox News that the CIA and FBI are supposed to be “independent agencies,” and noted that “coordination between political actors at the White House and investigators would be inappropriate,” raising questions about the level of involvement of Obama White House officials.
Aug. 30, 2016, Strzok texted Page: “Here we go,” sending a link to the Times report titled, “Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote and seeks FBI inquiry.”
Strzok replied: “D [Comey] said at am brief that Reid called him and told him he would be sending a letter.”
Congressional investigators suggested that the Reid letter possibly provided “cover” for the fact that the FBI and Justice Department had already begun investigating the Trump campaign in mid-July on what they called “questionable ethical and legal grounds.”
“The ‘here we go’ text between Strzok and Page indicates the FBI/ DOJ knew the letter from Reid was coming,” a congressional source told Fox News. “This created the inference they knew it would create public calls for an investigation into Russian interference — covering them.”
Sarah Carter also reported:
The documents also reveal that former Senate majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, sent a letter on Aug. 29, 2016, asking then FBI Director James Comey to investigate the allegations, which were presented to him by then CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan had briefed Reid privately days earlier on the counterintelligence investigation and documents suggest Reid was also staying in close touch with Comey over the issues. The Gang of Eight is a group of eight lawmakers who have access to the most highly classified information and often meet on Capitol Hill to be briefed on classified material.
This isn’t the first time Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have been in the headlines for texting.
The text messages have given a major blow to the credibility of the Russia investigation, even causing Strzok to be removed from Robert Mueller’s special council.
Strzok hesitated to join Mueller’s investigation because he had a “gut sense” there’s “no big there there.”
To make things worse, we even found out Strzok was close friends with U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, who was the judge presiding in the General Michael Flynn case. Contreras was eventually recused from the Flynn case.
Andrew McCabe, former FBI Deputy Director, was fired in the middle of March, just hours before he was set to retire and receive his $1.8 million dollar pension. With the Inspector General report on the horizon, dots may start connecting.
It’s safe to say there’s some shady things going on in the upper levels of the United States government and agencies that are supposed to be protecting us. We’ll see how it continues to shake out.
