On Monday, Judicial Watch Founder Tom Fitton joined Fox News host Lou Dobbs for an interview to talk about recent developments regarding the illegal spying conducted on the Trump campaign especially how it relates to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Fitton revealed that federal prosecutors are close to making a decision on whether or not to indict McCabe for not only lying to the feds, but also for lying under oath. He also is accused of leaking information to the press.
"Right now the FBI doesn’t want to give us one text message from Andrew McCabe and they’re being forced by a judge as you just pointed out in a Judicial Watch case to go look for Steele documents after he was a confidential informant because the FBI is telling us they were trying to protect Steele’s privacy," Fitton said. "And a judge laughed at that… This is an FBI that thinks it’s above the lawn . Christopher Wray has done zero to reform the institution and he’s fighting tooth-and-nail on anything that will make the FBI look bad. "
This bombshell report was revealed by John Solomon of The Hill who said that the evidence found on Hillary's server was so extremely classified that only a small group of people would be able to see it.
Check out what he said:
A staff memo updating the two senators’ long-running probe discloses that the FBI — the version run in 2016 by the now-disgraced and fired James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok — failed to pursue access to “highly classified” evidence that could have resolved important questions.
The failure to look at the evidence back in 2016 occurred even though the agents believed access to the sensitive evidence was “necessary” to complete the investigation into Clinton’s improper transmission of classified emails — some top-secret — on her unsecure private email server, the memos show.
To make matters worse, the Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) has known about that decision since at least 2018, thanks to the work of the DOJ’s internal watchdog, Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, who provided DOJ leaders and Congress with a classified appendix explaining what happened.
But Johnson and Grassley have been unable to get answers for a year, even from Attorney General William Barr, about whether the FBI intends to look at the critical evidence it skipped back in 2016.
"The Senate staff memo succinctly lays out just how egregious the FBI’s decision was in 2016," Solomon continues.
The staff memo reveals: The inspector general’s “appendix raised a number of serious questions because, as explained on page 154 of the unclassified DOJ IG report, the FBI decided not to seek access to certain highly classified information potentially relevant to the investigation despite members of the FBI case team referring to the review as a ‘necessary’ part of the investigation."
“As a result of the findings in that appendix, Senator Grassley wrote a classified letter to DOJ on October 17, 2018, which remains unanswered. On January 15, 2019, at Mr. Barr’s nomination hearing, Senator Grassley asked Mr. Barr if he would answer the letter, if confirmed, to which he attested, ‘Yes, Senator.’ On April 16, 2019, Senators Grassley, Johnson, and Graham sent a letter to Attorney General Barr reiterating the need for a written response to that letter." the memo continues.What are your thoughts?
