There is no secret that the federal government was filled with staunch Obama supporters at the time that Donald Trump became America’s 45th president.
Previous revelations let us know about a conspiracy that existed within the DOJ and FBI to first prevent Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election and then to sabotage his presidency once he did win.
We know that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were involved, along with many others.
There are even suspicions that James Comey was kept appraised of the conspiracy and that he regularly kept Obama appraised.
More recently, President Trump learned that after he fired James Comey, that other leaders in the FBI launched a secret investigation into Trump to determine if he was working as a Russian agent against the United States.
Fox News – Trump slams ‘total sleaze’ Comey, ‘corrupt’ FBI leaders, after report bureau launched probe after director’s ouster – The White House lashed out against “disgraced partisan hack” James Comey and “known liar” Andrew McCabe on Friday after a report that the FBI — after President Trump fired Comey as the bureau’s director — opened a secret inquiry into whether Trump had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.
The investigators working on the inquiry had to assess whether Trump’s actions could constitute a possible national security threat. The agency tried to determine whether the president was working for Russia or had fallen under the Kremlin’s influence, the New York Times reported.
The probe into Trump also looked into possible criminality, in particular the May 2017 firing of Comey and whether that could be deemed an obstruction of justice…
This new revelation raises questions about the testimony that James Comey and Lisa Page gave before members of Congress.
In those testimonies, both Comey and Page said that there was no evidence at the time of any collusion between Trump and Russia.
If their testimonies were true, then there was no legal reason to launch the secret investigation, which would tend many to believe that the reason for the secret investigation was purely political, driven by loyal Obamanites within the FBI.
