Now you have FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe meeting with Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, and from that meeting we hear about in a text from Strzok to Page:
"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office" -- an apparent reference to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe -- "that there's no way he gets elected -- but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40 . . . . "That right there sure sounds like a conspiracy. We need to know what was said in that governmental office. I don't care if it takes thumbscrews and waterboarding. McCabe was supposed to testify yesterday but that testimony was cancelled because: FBI's McCabe 'has an Ohr problem,' will not testify on Tuesday
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was reportedly scheduled to testify behind closed doors in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, will instead meet next week due to a "scheduling error," Department of Justice officials told Fox News.We find a Deputy Attorney General in bed with a woman who works writing anti-Trump papers for Fusion GPS:
McCabe’s testimony was likely to, at least in part, focus on Peter Strzok’s role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
. . .
“This was a routine scheduling error after the dates were switched on an internal email that we are happy to provide the committee,” a Justice Department official told Fox News. “The FBI regrets the error, and we look forward to making both witnesses (the alleged FBI handler for Christopher Steele and McCabe) available prior to the Christmas recess."
. . .
But Fox News was told by those familiar with the matter that the intelligence committee is suspicious of the purported scheduling error. One source said they believe the schedule issue arose after Fox News' report Monday night on Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr.
Ohr was recently demoted from one of his two senior posts. Fox News reported that Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked through last fall for Fusion GPS, which was behind the anti-Trump dossier.
Court documents reveal the opposition research firm that put together a dossier filled with wild, unsubstantiated claims about Donald Trump hired the spouse of a newly demoted Justice Department official to dig up dirt on Trump.It's a little funny to see the vampires scatter in the light of day.
Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS — the infamous firm behind the dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele — stated in a court declaration that his firm hired Nellie H. Ohr as a subcontractor to help with “research and analysis of Mr. Trump,” according to Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller. Nellie H. Ohr is married to Bruce G. Ohr, who was associate deputy attorney general at the DOJ until he was recently demoted.
The timing of Bruce Ohr’s demotion is curious, as he retained his status as a top DOJ official until just before Fox News broke the story about his wife’s role at Fusion GPS and his own secret meetings with Steele and Simpson in 2016.
We don't know for sure yet, but it's almost a sure thing that the "Russian Dossier" was used to obtain the FISA warrants that resulted in the unmasking of literally thousands of conversations of American citizens by the NSA, and their subsequent leaks, and use as leverage in the guilty pleas of Gen Michael Flynn and foreign policy nerd George Papadopoulos.
So here you have the DNC, the Hillary Campaign, and the Obama DOJ/FBI conspiring with the Russians to create a dossier that accuses the Trump campaign of, get this, conspiring with the Russians, and using that dossier to circumvent the 4th amendment protections of it's staffers to set up perjury traps.
At this point I would call any evidence obtained on the basis of the the dossier, and any investigation tainted by Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok or Lisa Page fruit of the poison tree, and have it thrown out.
