Stephen E. Boyd, a Department of Justice official who provided a summary of the investigation, claims that the probe by Attorney General William Barr into what prompted the “Russia collusion” investigation, is going to have results that are “broad” and “multifaceted.”
The DOJ is looking into the “deep state” actions that were brought again the Trump campaign. A report in the Daily Caller explains the review is “broad in scope and multifacted.”
The original “Russian Collusion” investigation, started by Democrats, ended after more than two years and tens of millions of dollars were wasted with the conclusion by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller that there was no collusion, and there were no charges of obstruction, which also was alleged.
The original probe was launched because of a political opposition research document, Steel Dossier, funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The FBI, Obama, and other agencies and deep state operatives used Steel Dossier to launch an investigation into Trump.
It remains to be seen how this document was funneled through the justice department, cleared through the FISA court with no verifiable claims behind it. When the Obama administration sought permission to spy on Trump? It’s illegal for information that has not been verified to be submitted to the court.
Boyd’s letter, says
“It is now well established that, in 2016, the U.S. government and others undertook certain intelligence-gathering and investigative steps directed at persons associated with the Trump Campaign.”
“There remain open questions relating to the origins of this counter-intelligence investigation and the U.S. and foreign intelligence activities that took place prior to and during that investigation.”
Boyd told Nadler,
“The review is broad in scope and multifaceted, and is intended to illuminate open questions regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals. The FBI also used informants, including former Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, to make contact with Trump campaign advisers, including Page and George Papadopoulos. One question that has yet to be answered is when Halper was first tasked with contacting Trump associates,” ”
Rush Limbaugh on his show pointed out,
“The next obvious question, what the hell was this, then? Why was this done? Why was this investigation launched? Who did that, why, and when? You mean, after 40 FBI agents, over two years, $30 million, 19 Hillary-loving lawyers on Mueller’s team, and nothing?”
