COMMON SENSE: After stalling for more than a year, because they were compelled to do so by a FOIA request from Judicial Watch , the FBI has finally released the applications for the four FISA warrants. Big deal! So what? Why is this important, and who cares?
Everybody American should care about this because it is the evidence needed to show that the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign was predicated on the infamous Steele Dossier. This dossier was the foundation for the entire investigation that led to the Mueller probe, and it is all based on a flawed document that was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
In essence, the first two years of Trump’s Presidency have been undermined by the FBI swearing before a FISA judge that the Steele Dossier was evidence and not opposition research. That the Steele Dossier has been universally discredited means that the foundation of the Mueller investigation is fundamentally flawed, and all of his findings are “fruit of the poisoned tree,” which makes them inadmissible in court.
But that’s just part of it. The worst part has been the Department of Justice and FBI’s reluctance to admit their error and simply come forward with the truth. Andrew McCabe was fired for lack of candor, but what about the lack of candor throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice? They would rather see Trump’s Presidency fail and allow him to be hounded out of the White House instead of admitting the simple truth that they have been wrong all along. Such behavior is disgraceful and unacceptable.
There is no “other side of the story” to this—no justification whatsoever. Our FBI, our nation’s secret police, and the Department of Justice have been involved in an unethical and illegal cabal, aimed at unseating the 45th President of the United States. Those responsible have violated their oaths of office, and all of them must be held accountable. So far, nobody has—not for the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Uranium One, or anything else—but this must change. It must change now, beginning with new leadership at the Department of Justice. The American people deserve better, and we demand it.
