Among all the other signs that Obama/Clinton operated like a banana republic, now it seems they had a mole infiltrate the Trump campaign.
So the newest horrendous scandal is that it appears Obama placed a mole in the Trump campaign.
From the Wall Street Journal editorial delving into the possibility, we also learn that the mole may have been a foreigner. Given the “Russian collusion” charge that has been repeated endlessly, it would be ironic (in a sick and twisted way) if the Obama Administration worked with a foreign intelligence agency to infiltrate the Trump campaign.
Kimberly Strassel writes at the Wall Street Journal, “About that FBI ‘Source.’”
The bureau already has some explaining to do. Thanks to the Washington Post’s unnamed law-enforcement leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source” of the FBI and CIA, who is a U.S. citizen and who was involved in the Russia collusion probe. When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.
This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. […]
Which would lead to another big question for the FBI: When? The bureau has been doggedly sticking with its story that a tip in July 2016 about the drunken ramblings of George Papadopoulos launched its counterintelligence probe. Still, the players in this affair—the FBI, former Director Jim Comey, the Steele dossier authors—have been suspiciously vague on the key moments leading up to that launch date. When precisely was the Steele dossier delivered to the FBI? When precisely did the Papadopoulos information come in?
And to the point, when precisely was this human source operating? Because if it was prior to that infamous Papadopoulos tip, then the FBI isn’t being straight. […]
We also know that among the Justice Department’s stated reasons for not complying with the Nunes subpoena was its worry that to do so might damage international relationships. This suggests the “source” may be overseas, have ties to foreign intelligence, or both.
