This is a major bombshell development.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), the Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, just blew the lid off of SpyGate.
"We've learned new information suggesting our suspicions are true," Meadows announced last night. "FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press, and then used those same press stories as a separate source to justify FISA [warrants]."
Conservatives now have evidence that the Obama Justice Department used circular evidence to get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
The only "evidence" the Obama admin had was the Clinton-funded dossier. They couldn't prove any of it, since the dossier wasn't true, so the Obama DOJ used a truly despicable tactic: circular evidence.
People like Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, and Andrew McCabe leaked information in the dossier to the media, and then used those media reports to convince a Federal Judge to sign off on a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
This is an absolute bombshell. Not only that, but it is a felony. The Obama administration fabricated evidence to spy on a political opponent's campaign. They broke the law.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions refuses to investigate any of this. He is terrified of actually having to do his job.
Rod Rosenstein was a part of this conspiracy. He signed off on some of the fabricated surveillance warrant applications. Of course he isn't going to launch an investigation that would throw himself in prison.
Only Congress can hold these criminals accountable, and only YOU can force them to!
Today is the first day that the House is back in session. Conservatives aren't wasting any time. They have subpoenaed Bruce Ohr to testify and he is answering their questions right now behind closed doors.
Bruce Ohr was the #4 in Obama's Justice Department. He was technically in charge of managing the organized crime and drug enforcement task forces. But in 2016, he decided to insert himself into the Trump investigation.
Why? His wife worked for Fusion GPS and helped write the fake Trump-Russia dossier.
Eventually, even Obama's FBI realized that the dossier's author, Christopher Steele, was an unreliable source. Why? Because Steele was leaking to the press. The DOJ fired him for leaking, but Bruce Ohr continued meeting with Steele in secret and funneled his information back to the FBI anyway.
Days later, the DOJ was using the some of the stories that Steele had leaked to legitimize Steele's dossier. Do you get it? Without real evidence, the DOJ leadership used a source to confirm itself.
They knew that Steele leaked to the media. That's why they fired Steele and stopped working with him. But the Obama administration hated Trump so much, they used these leaks to construct circular evidence and lied to a Federal judge to get a warrant to spy on Candidate Trump.
This is far worse than Watergate.
We already knew about the Steele leaks. But now, Rep. Meadows is confirming that Congress has discovered other evidence that the Obama administration used leaks to the media to prop up its own sham investigation.
They leaked information to the press and then used those media reports to "confirm" their investigation. This is a crime.
Paul Ryan is refusing to let Meadows move forward with this. He is ordering Conservatives to stand down and let the Obama criminals off the hook.
Do not let this happen!
As I said, Jeff Sessions refuses to get involved. He has flat out refused to prosecute any case against the Clintons or the Obama administration.
That leaves Rod Rosenstein to authorize a full investigation into this. He won't. He is implicated in all of this. His signature is at the bottom of many of these fraudulent surveillance warrant applications. Of course he would prosecute himself. Either Rosenstein was too stupid to see through this circular evidence, or he was complicit in it.
The DOJ won't touch this. They are too compromised.
That leaves only Congress left to take the Deep State down and YOU control Congress!
President Trump is declassifying and releasing evidence as fast as he can. Whatever the consequences, Trump knows that these Deep State conspirators cannot be allowed to go unpunished.
But that is precisely what Ryan and the GOP are doing. The Freedom Caucus uncovered solid evidence that the Obama administration broke the law and Ryan is ordering them to sit on their hands.
Do not let him get away with this!
