Washington, DC is embroiled in multiple sex scandals with Democrats resigning almost daily, but the real political scandal brewing this past year was the Obama Administration's alleged spying on political opponents on the Trump campaign and transition team.
Fusion GPS is a political consulting firm run by two former Wall Street Journal reporters. They were paid by the Hilary Clinton Campaign and the DNC to compile the fake news Trump Dossier that BuzzFeed published.
The dossier was compiled by former British spy, Christopher Steele, who used unverified Kremlin sources.
You may recall President Trump put out a widely mocked tweet on March 7 about Obama having his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower.
What we now know nine months after that tweet is that in his final days in office, Obama signed three executive orders that allowed the intelligence community greater ability to share information.
With at least two US citizens connected to the Trump campaign put under investigation and under surveillance, the FBI has still not explained to anyone why, or if, they paid for the Steele dossier.
Let’s hope that Republican members of Congress like DeSantis, Trey Gowdy and Devin Nunes can get to the bottom of all this.
Nunes has used his subpoena power to compel the FBI and Justice Department to reveal their motives for launching the Trump-Russia investigation, and what role the fake news Steele Dossier had in surveilling American citizens.
The Obama Administration launched the investigation in July 2016 and over a year later, there’s still no evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign —but we do see plenty of evidence that Democrats spied on their political opponents, and that the Special Counsel and FBI are becoming partisan and corrupted by anti-Trump, pro-Clinton sentiments.
