Revealed: FBI Collusion With DNC Attorneys Over Dossier

The bureau failed to disclose the partisan nature of the dossier to the FISA court.

Meanwhile, in the swamp, the whole Trump/Russia collusion fiasco continues to simmer in the background. The latest revelation is that former FBI general counsel James Baker met with Democrat National Committee lawyers to discuss the Russia investigation and the infamous Christopher Steele dossier before the bureau secured a FISA warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s campaign. Yes, that would be the Clinton/DNC-funded dossier that formed the primary basis for the FBI’s warrant request. In fact, Baker met with the same private DNC law firm — Perkins Coie — that served as the passthrough for Clinton cash to get to Fusion GPS for that dossier.

It would seem uncorroborated “evidence” is a theme for Democrats to smear a political enemy.

The Hill’s John Solomon further explains the significance: “It means the FBI had good reason to suspect the dossier was connected to the DNC’s main law firm and was the product of a Democratic opposition-research effort to defeat Trump — yet failed to disclose that information to the FISA court in October 2016, when the bureau applied for a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.”

Furthermore, he says, “These revelations illustrate anew how much the FBI and Justice Department have withheld from the public about their collaboration and collusion with clearly partisan elements of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, Fusion and Steele, that were trying to defeat Trump.”

“Some of the things that were shared [by Baker in closed-door testimony] were explosive in nature,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said. “This witness confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That’s extremely troubling.”

Last month, Trump ordered the Page FISA warrant declassified, only to reverse course a few days later. Many congressional Republicans continue to push for that declassification, if only to shed more light on the FBI’s political abuses of the FISA process. Indeed, so far, the only collusion seems to be between the DNC and the FBI.

Still — tongue firmly planted in cheek — we have no doubt the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh will clear everything right up and all Americans will join in harmonious agreement on his confirmation.
