In the past year, the FBI has lost a lot of credibility.
The release of the heavily redacted FISA warrant used to spy on Trump adviser Carter Page only helped fuel that fire.
And Devin Nunes just shed some light on one thing few noticed in the warrant that proves just how corrupt the FBI actually is.
In order to begin Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, a lot of footwork had to be put in.
People at all levels of government were involved, with the FBI seeming to be the driving force.
The FBI was the agency that submitted the application to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump adviser Carter Page.
That warrant was a major factor used as justification when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the formation of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.
In the four applications the FBI submitted, it was clear that the main piece of evidence used to obtain the warrant was the Russia dossier compiled by former British Spy Christopher Steele.
That was the same dossier that was funded by Trump’s rival in 2016, Hillary Clinton, along with the Democratic National Committee.
Not only was it funded by his political opponent, but it was unverified, with ridiculous claims seeming to come from nowhere listed.
So that one fact proved just how politically motivated the FBI acted and was a sort of vindication for Trump, who has been railing on the FBI for nearly two years.
But according to Rep. Devin Nunes, it may not even be the worst part of the warrant.
Because the warrant was highly redacted, there was much of it that the American people can’t read, and that is what troubles Nunes.
Speaking to The Hill, he pointed out that what can be seen in the warrant application itself is bad, but that what people can’t see is even worse.
“I would argue that what’s left in there is really bad, if not worse, but also what’s not in there is even worse than what people can see, what people can’t see,” Nunes stated.
This is very telling coming from Nunes.
As House Intelligence Committee Chairman, if anybody outside the FBI knows what’s in the warrant application, it’s him.
But because the information is classified, he cannot say exactly what is in it.
Instead, he is dropping hints, letting the American people know that what they can see isn’t the worst that’s out there.
It is difficult to even speculate about what could be in the redacted portion of the document based on his statement.
There can’t be much worse out there than a Justice Department agency using unverified information found in a politically motivated dossier to obtain a warrant on somebody advising a presidential campaign.
Page was spied on under the belief that he was the Trump campaign’s contact with Russian officials.
Not only has Page intensely denied these accusations, Mueller isn’t even investigating him anymore.
That means that on practical terms, the only value in him being spied on was to justify the creation of Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Do you think Robert Mueller’s investigation is politically motivated?
