The swamp clings to the belief evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia exists.
This is their golden ticket to removing the President from office.
Now one top Congressman identified the cover-up that holds the ugly truth about collusion with Russia.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has been pressing the Department of Justice for answers about how the FBI used the fake news regarding the Christopher Steele Trump-Russia dossier in the collusion investigation.
The document – which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrats – could have played a central role in kick-starting the probe as well in obtaining FISA warrants to spy on Trump campaign associates.
He subpoenaed records from the Department of Justice and the FBI four months ago to bring to light how the document figured in the Russia investigation.
But both the Justice Department and the FBI are stonewalling him.
The Daily Caller reported:
“House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes is accusing the Justice Department and FBI of “intransigence” for ignoring a subpoena issued more than four months ago for interviews and records related to the infamous Steele dossier.
“At this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves,” Nunes wrote Thursday in a bluntly worded letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.”
Nunes is trying to get to the bottom of how Strzok – who signed off on the Russia investigation – utilized the Clinton funded dossier in making his decision.
He’s also digging into the meeting between recently demoted high-ranking Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson that took place after the election.
Ohr’s wife was hired by Fusion GPS to investigate Trump-Russia ties.
The Daily Caller also reported:
“Nunes, a California Republican, accused Rosenstein of ignoring a subpoena issued on Aug. 24 for a slew of records related to the dossier, the Democrat-funded report that is central to the allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians during the presidential campaign.
Nunes is asking Rosenstein to produce summaries of all interviews conducted with witnesses and confidential human sources as part of the investigation into the dossier by Jan. 3, next Wednesday.
He is also demanding that Rosenstein set dates for next month for interviews with former DOJ Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok, FBI general counsel James Baker, FBI lawyers Lisa Page and Sally Moyer, and the FBI’s congressional liaison, Greg Brower.
Ohr was recently stripped of his top DOJ position after it was discovered that he met last year with Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, and with Glenn Simpson, a partner at Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the salacious document.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, also worked for Fusion GPS during the presidential campaign on its Trump investigation.
Bruce Ohr, who had an office several doors down from Rosenstein until his recent demotion, reportedly did not tell his superiors about his meetings with Steele and Simpson.”
Critics believe the Justice Department and FBI under Obama utilized fake news paid for by the Clinton campaign to investigate Trump and destroy his Presidency.
This was the “insurance policy” described in text messages between Strzok and the FBI lawyer he was having an affair with.
If Nunes can rip the seal off this cover-up, he can fully exonerate Trump.
