Americans have one serious question about the Robert Mueller investigation.
How did the FBI’s probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia begin?
Now the real truth about the Mueller investigation is even more awful than anyone thought.
There has been a shifting origin story Deep State leakers planted in the press.
In April 2017, the New York Times published a story about how Carter Page’s summer 2016 trip to Moscow is what tipped the FBI about suspicious contacts between Trump campaign aides and Russians.
There was just one big problem with that story.
This trip was a focal point of the Christopher Steele dossier.
When it was revealed that the dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton, the New York Times then ran a story in December stating that the true beginning of the counterintelligence investigation was when the Australian government passed along information to the FBI that Trump foreign policy team member George Papadopoulos had discussed being offered information about the Russians having Hillary Clinton’s emails with one of their diplomats.
Now Americans are wondering if this is the truth in the wake of bombshell revelations that the Obama administration sicced a spy on the Trump campaign.
The spy – allegedly Cambridge Professor Stefan Halper – approached three Trump aides and tried to weasel his way into their good graces to earn a position on the campaign.
In light of the idea that a Democratic administration weaponized spies against the Republican nominee, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani declared on CNN that he no longer saw the Mueller investigation as legitimate.
“Giuliani also suggested that the start of the Mueller probe was illegitimate, citing fired FBI Director James Comey’s leaked memos and a lack of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.
“(Y)ou get the Comey thing, which is the leak of a confidential memo, which is illegal for an FBI official to do. I’m not saying Mueller is illegitimate. I’m saying the basis on which he was appointed was illegitimate,” Giuliani remarked.
Asked whether the Mueller probe was legitimate now, Giuliani said, “not anymore,” citing reports of an FBI informant within the Trump campaign as one of the reasons for its discrediting.”
The media went into overdrive to try and spin the idea that the Obama administration deploying a spy to snoop around the Trump campaign was a perfectly normal use of a “confidential human informant.”
But neither the FBI nor the Department of Justice will release the documents surrounding the spy’s covert activities.
Both agencies have consistently stonewalled Congresses oversight attempts and refuse to make public the intelligence that led to the FBI launching the investigation into the Trump campaign.
Critics contend this cover-up is taking place because the investigation – as Giuliani stated – is illegitimate.
