The House Intelligence Committee has finally produced a report on its investigation into potential election collusion by the FBI and DOJ.
Late Thursday, Republican members voted to release the full report to the American public, which several members called ‘explosive’ and likened it to a Watergate-level scandal.
Among the details are a revelation that the FBI interviewed infamous Hillary confidante Sidney Blumenthal (whose email account was the trigger that exposed Hillary’s private server), which may have been part of the FBI’s attempt to justify use of FISA searches on members of Trump’s campaign.
House leaders are already predicting the report could put an end to Mueller’s investigation and also likely lead to the ouster of more DOJ/FBI officials with some even heading to jail.
This is big, folks. We’ll keep you posted as things continue to unfold.
Here’s more from Redstate…
A bombshell new report was made available to House members Thursday detailing abuses of the FISA court that could lead to the ouster of senior officials in both the FBI and the Department of Justice; and if that happens, it all leads back to that pesky little document first released by Buzzfeed lo these many months ago: the Steele dossier.
This is the very document Democrats hung their hopes on in a quest to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian agents, and the one that it’s alleged was used to procure a FISA warrant to spy on Trump adviser Carter Page.
We already know the Clinton campaign had a hand in paying for the dossier through lawyers via payments to the opposition research firm, Fusion GPS, that employed Christoper Steele — the former British spy who authored the dossier. And it just got weirder with news that Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal may have been interviewed by the FBI regarding the dossier way back in February 2016.
The question, of course, is why?; especially since the dossier was shortly after used “in part” to obtain warrants to spy on Page.
And then there are Blumenthal’s statements just following the election, words that, in hindsight, further tighten the screws on the Clinton camp’s role in what more and more appears to be a premeditated attempt to take down Donald Trump. His curious statements also offer justification for what national security reporter Sara Carter calls the “explosive” report given to the House Thursday that could lead “to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.”
