Following their loss to President Trump in the election, many Democrats have joined forces with the media to claim the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia and stole the election from the two-time loser Hillary Clinton.
Anyone with a brain knows these accusations are ridiculous at this point. It’s not hard to see from the massive Trump rallies across the country and the big-time support of a candidate who rolled through 17 other GOP candidates. The writing was on the wall: the Trump Train was headed to Washington.
Now House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has dropped a bombshell. On Sunday he declared that the Hillary Clinton campaign colluded with “nearly every” top official in the Department of Justice and FBI.
Per Washington Examiner:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes declared Sunday that Hillary Clinton’s campaign “colluded” with nearly every top official in the Justice Department and FBI.
An interview on Fox News had turned to the topic of Trump dossier author Christopher Steele and his ties to Bruce Ohr, a high-level DOJ official who fed the FBI information from the ex-British spy even after he was cut as a source for providing confidential information to the media.
The dossier, published last year by BuzzFeed, contains unverified claims about the Russians having information on President Trump that could be used as leverage. Republican investigators are concerned the FBI deceived a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court when it used information from the dossier without disclosing its Democratic benefactors to gain the authority to spy on onetime Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Clinton’s campaign, as well as the Democratic National Committee, retained Fusion GPS’ anti-Trump research through October 2016 after it was initially funded, then dropped by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative publication.
Nunes, R-Calif., blamed the media for largely ignoring the revelations surrounding the origins of the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and stressing that the American people “need to know it” called for the declassification of “an unprecedented amount of information.”
Ohr, who was the fourth-highest ranking official in the Justice Department, will testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Aug. 28 “to answer why he had 60+ contacts with dossier author, Chris Steele, as far back as January 2016,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., announced on Twitter late Friday.
