If The FBI Started Investigating Trump In July 2016, The Clinton Campaign Was Behind It

Democrats and media are trying to deflect from the House memo by saying the Russia investigation really started in July 2016. That argument doesn’t work in their favor.

By Willis L. Krumholz   
February 12, 2018

When the House intelligence committee memo dropped a week ago Friday, it confirmed the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign paid opposition-research firm Fusion GPS to create a dossier that the FBI used to obtain a warrant to spy on Carter Page, a low-level foreign policy adviser to the Donald Trump campaign.

The FBI grossly misrepresented the dossier’s veracity in seeking a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court, failed to specifically outline its political origins, and used a news article based on the unverified dossier to corroborate the dossier. Fusion GPS did this to enable reports in the media, right before the 2016 election, that Trump had nefarious ties to Russia.

Not only was Fusion GPS’s dossier unverified, but it was constructed by a British national—Edward Baumgartner—with actual ties to Russia. While working for former British spook Chris Steele to compile the dossier, Baumgartner allegedly used Russians with possible ties to the Kremlin as sources. While running this whole operation, Fusion GPS was also doing work for the Kremlin, directly working with the Russians who set up a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Tower to discuss information that would “incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia.”

With Hillary’s 30,000 deleted emails in mind, Don Jr. likely thought he was about to find evidence of a pay-to-play operation at the Clinton Foundation and State Department. Instead, he was treated to drabble about Russia’s hoped-for repeal of a law called the Magnitsky Act, passed to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of a Russian whistleblower, Sergei Magnitsky. Fusion GPS provided the anti-Magnitsky Act documents for that meeting. Fusion GPS’s founder Glen Simpson even met with Natalia Veselnitskaya, one of the Russian attendees, both before and after that infamous Trump Tower meeting.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Hitlary is genuinely too stupid to put together a plan of this magnitude. There is only one diabolical genius that could put all these pieces together and set it in motion.........Ted Cruz!

Thank you, it is interesting. 

The story starts with an odd premise, however.  The media and Dems have talked about this aspect, to be sure.  I've also mentioned it because it's actually in the Nunes memo.  The article presents it as if it is ginned up or a talking point.  A fairly big deal was made prior to the release that the memo contained 'no factual errors' after review by DOJ personnel.  That part is a fact included in what Gowdy found going through documents.

The portion discussing Papadopoulos and the investigation timeframe in on the last page in section 5.  What's key, in my mind, is that it also says that the actions were initiated by Strzok.  Given what we know about him, it'd be nice to know what texts or emails exchanged with Page coincide with those events.  The investigation wouldn't begin just because the Australian ambassador said something. What information did they have that was corroborated by his notification?  Hopefully, that will come out to be picked over.

There have been reports Papadopoulos wore a wire for Mueller as part of his deal after being charged.  We may not have heard the last of him, if that's true.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.
