The FBI is once again involved in a massive cover-up.
They are hiding something from the American people.
And it’s about a secret meeting James Comey had with Barack Obama that could turn the Russia investigation upside down.
Americans learned about a secret Oval Office meeting attended by former FBI Director James Comey and Barack Obama when former National Security Advisor Susan Rice emailed herself to her government account on the day Donald Trump took office.
This was the meeting where Obama allegedly told everyone he wanted the Russia investigation done “by the book.”
Critics contend this means Obama knew about the FISA warrant obtained against Carter Page which allowed them to spy on the Trump campaign by virtue of gaining access to his communications from the time he was a Trump advisor.
This bombshell revelation contradicts Comey’s Senate testimony where he misled the Committee by carefully testifying that he only spoke with Obama alone twice during his tenure as FBI Director.
Comey told the Senate he only spoke with Obama alone in 2015 about a law enforcement matter and their last conversation occurred in 2016 before Obama left office and it was only about saying goodbye.
We now know that was misleading because it allowed him to conceal the existence of the January 5th meeting.
Now the FBI is trying to hide any documents about the meeting.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The FBI states it will not expedite the release of documents about secret meetings between FBI Director James Comey and former President Barack Obama, according to a letter the bureau sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Such information is not “a matter of widespread and exceptional media interest in which there exists possible questions about the government’s integrity which affects public confidence,” David Hardy, the section chief for the bureau’s Record/Information Dissemination Section, told The DCNF in a Feb. 26 letter.
The DCNF, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), requested records of all meetings between Comey and Obama and sought an “expedited process” as provided under the act when issues are of great interest to the media and the records address issues pertaining to government integrity. The DCNF FOIA request was filed Feb. 16, 2018.
The issue prompting the FOIA request was the disclosure Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with Obama on Jan. 5, 2017. Comey never divulged the meeting to Congress.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is also very interested in what was discussed at that meeting.
He found the email Rice sent odd and is demanding more answers.
The Daily Caller also reports:
“Grassley of Iowa and Graham of South Carolina wrote to Rice in a Feb. 8 letter saying the email seemed “odd” to them.
“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama,” the two wrote.
“Despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book,’” the two senators continued.”
