Spygate is a quickly growing scandal that proves every Trump supporters worst fears.
Conservatives who warned of a Deep State coup against the President believe the FBI and Obama administration colluded to sabotage Trump.
Now Rush Limbaugh says this is the smoking gun that proves the FBI tried to frame Trump.
The FBI claims the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia – codenamed “Crossfire Hurricane” – began after the Australian government informed the FBI of a months-old conversation between one of their former diplomats and Trump foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos.
Papadopoulos allegedly told the diplomat that was he approached by a mysterious professor who informed him that Russia had Hillary Clinton emails.
The professor was Joseph Mifsud and the plea agreement Papadopoulos reached with special counsel Robert Mueller claimed Papadopoulos knew Mifsud was known to have connections to Russian intelligence.
But this fact – and the substance of his conversation with Papadopoulos – is now in dispute.
In an interview with Real Clear Investigations, authors Stephan Roh and Thierry Pastor, who wrote the book “The Faking of Russia-gate: The Papadopoulos Case, an Investigative Analysis,” explained who Joseph Mifsud really was:
“In interviews with RealClearInvestigations, Roh and Pastor said Mifsud is anything but a Russian spy. Rather, he is more likely a Western intelligence asset.
Pastor and Roh, who hired Mifsud as a business development consultant in 2015, write that far from being a Russian spy, Mifsud “had only one master: the Western Political, Diplomatic and Intelligence World, his only home, of which he is still deeply dependent.”
Mifsud has since disappeared which led to speculation that he either went into hiding once his ties to the Kremlin became known or that the Russians had him killed.
This is not the case as Roh and Pastor’s book has an interview with Mifsud and they claim he is in hiding in Italy with the help of an Italian intelligence agent.
In addition, as Great American Daily previously reported, Roh and Pastor’s book confirms that Mifsud never told Papadopoulos that the Russians had Clinton emails – only merely damaging information.
On his Wednesday broadcast, Rush Limbaugh put two and two together and stated that the whole deal with Papadopoulos was a set-up by the FBI.
“Now, you in this audience know that Papadopoulos didn’t know anything on his own. The Trump did not know that the Russians had Hillary Clinton emails. To this day nobody knows whether that’s true. Again, a man named Joseph Mifsud in April of 2016, he’s an associate of the FBI informant Stefan Halper. He’s nowhere to be found, by the way…
…That’s Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos didn’t know anything until it was planted! Certainly, Gowdy knows that. Maybe he doesn’t believe that’s true. Maybe the FBI told him that that story about Papadopoulos and Halper is all BS; that Papadopoulos did know it independently. But this is a key element of this whole thing that it appears, as I thought it would be, is being ignored.”
This is what Congress and the media should be investigating.
And the fact-pattern Limbaugh lays out provides a good explanation as to why the Department of Justice and the FBI have been slow-walking Congresses document requests.
The real scandal here is the conduct of the Obama administration, the FBI, and intelligence agencies.
They may have manufactured a basis for launching a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
