WATCH: Joe DiGenova explains the brazen plot to frame Trump
Recently discovered memos show that a high-ranking government official met with the FBI’s asset, Christopher Steele, in October 2016 and determined Steele was lying about dirt on Donald Trump.
Steele was providing inaccurate information simultaneously for the FBI as well as Hillary Clinton’s campaign. These memos were recorded 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes taken by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016…
It is important to note that the FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant, who simultaneously worked for Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign to find Russian dirt on Trump.
That’s a pretty remarkable declaration in Footnote 5 on Page 15 of the FISA application, since Kavalec apparently needed just a single encounter with Steele at State to find one of his key claims about Trump-Russia collusion was blatantly false.
This is a major bombshell. The FBI knowingly used false and inaccurate information to spy on Trump. Despite the FISA, the recordings of the Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia produced nothing. The story of Russia collusion was fully debunked.
In Kavalec’s typed notes, she wrote that Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election.” She continues to say this effort by Russia had recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”
Despite Steele’s comments saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” Kavalec destroy his lies by asserting: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”
What does the FBI have to say for itself now?
