FBI Collusion with Clinton and Obama against Trump was reportedly at work in the production and spread of the Trump dossier.
Republicans are trying to get to the bottom of suspected FBI collusion with the Democrats during the 2016 campaign. In my opinion, I wish they would re-open the investigation of the IRS and all other regulatory agencies in trying to suppress Tea Party activism. Basically, attack every aspect of the deep state.
This issue is not about the Democrats controlling the FBI as much as it is about the deep state siding with Obama-Clinton.
They assumed that they would get away with everything because Hillary would win.
Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner, “After Trump dossier revelation, FBI is next.”
Sometime in October 2016 — that is, at the height of the presidential campaign — Christopher Steele, the foreign agent hired by Fusion GPS to compile the Trump dossier, approached the FBI with information he had gleaned during the project. According to a February report in the Washington Post, Steele “reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work.”
It was an astonishing turn: the nation’s top federal law enforcement agency agreeing to fund an ongoing opposition research project being conducted by one of the candidates in the midst of a presidential election. “The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” wrote Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
In the end, according to reports, the FBI did not pay Steele. But the dossier did not go away. […]
In recent months, Nunes has been trying to force the FBI to reveal just what it did in the dossier matter. The intel chairman issued a subpoena to the FBI on Aug. 24, and in the time since, not a single document has been produced to the committee. The FBI and the Justice Department have spent most of that time talking about possibly complying with this or that part of the subpoena. But so far — nothing.
The same is true of Grassley’s inquiries.
