DOJ Targets ‘NGOs And Individuals’ In Spy Agency Abuse Probe

1982

The Justice Department revealed on Monday that it is investigating several “non-governmental organizations and individuals” in its “multifaceted” and “broad” probe into alleged misconduct by US intelligence agencies surrounding the 2016 US election, according to a DOJ letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).

The letter was in response to Nadler’s request as to the scope of the investigation, led by Connecticut US Attorney John Durham.

According to Fox NewsDurham is looking into whether “foreign intelligence services” played a role. Of note, the highly controversial “Steele Dossier” – created by an ex-British spy for employer Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign an the DNC was referred to as “crown material” in emails unearthed last month.

And while the letter doesn’t name specific individuals, foreign intel services or non-governmental organizations, the prime suspects here would be Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, Stephan Halper, “Azra Turk,” Alexander Downer, Joseph Mifsud, along with UK and Australian intelligence services.

Last week, reports indicated Steele had agreed to talk with Durham if certain preconditions were met. Multiple sources familiar with the matter told Fox News, meanwhile, that Durham is “very dialed in” and “asking all the right questions.” Separately, sources within the Justice Department confirmed to Fox News that Barr has met “on multiple occasions in recent weeks” with Durham in Washington, D.C.

Numerous problems with the Steele dossier’s reliability have surfaced, including several issues that were brought to the FBI’s attention before it cited the dossier in its FISA application and subsequent renewals. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report made plain, for example, that then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen did not travel to Prague to conspire with Russian hackers seeking to access Democrat files, as the dossier alleged. –Fox News

They knew…

On Sunday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News that he had seen “additional documents” which reveal that “prior to the first FISA application, Peter Strzok, Andy McCabe, and others at the FBI knew that Christopher Steele’s dossier was not credible.”

Meadows, speaking to “Fox News Sunday,” pointed specifically to a report from The Hill’s John Solomon, who found that Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, a key figure in Mueller’s report, was actually a U.S. informant. In his report, Mueller linked Kilimnik to Russian intelligence, and did not mention Kilimnik’s secretive ties to the U.S. in the report other court filings — even as Mueller suggested former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s ties to Kilimnik were nefarious. –Fox News

“The deeper the dive we take into the Mueller report, we’re starting to find out some of the conclusions, and actually some of the facts they put forth in there, are a misrepresentation of what we actually know,” said Meadows.

  1. Treason is a badge of honor for the Godless NAZI Commie liberal Racist Muslim Demoncrat Party & RINOs! The party of hate, hypocrisy, lies, deception,Fake News(Russian Collusion & Jussie M hoax)the list is endless!And the clueless minions that follow them!

  2. J knew Mueller was a piece of crap as soon as I saw him. He cannot look anyone, even a camera in the eye because he is a liar. My feelings were reinforced by the rapidity with which everyone came to say what a great guy and how ethical he was. Half truths are lied and misrepresentations. A good cop wants justice, not evidence to support his foregone position. He is as dirty as they come and I hope thy burn his ass.

  3. Just more GOP, Republican, evangelical, conservative “crap”. You all are shoveling and pedaling it out as fast as you can!!

  4. IF Mr. Mueller wanted to investigate Mr. Paul Manafort, while he was working to help Ex-Ukrainian President Yanukovich, why didn’t Mr. Mueller start investigation Mr. John Podesta? Yes, Mr. Podesta happened to be doing the very same actions in helping Ex-Uktainian President Yanukovich, before The Kiev, Ukraine Maidan Square Massacre, as Mr. Manafort, but there is one reason why Mr. Mueller did NOT Investigate Mr. Podesta, Mr. Podesta was working for Mrs. HRC, just like Mr. Vincent Foster, a long time ago, happened to be working Mrs. HRC also!!!

  5. People, spying by counter espionage agencies is absolutely what they are designed to do. No excuse or retort works to debate that fact. Another fact, over 140 contacts between campaign and russian operatives occurred. Fact, none of those interactions were disclosed. Fact, every participant in those secret communications, when questioned; Lied. Facts. Now if any org, candidate or citizen had 140 contacts with a hostile nation CURRENTLY attacking democracies around the globe, what would the typical counter intelligence response be? How do people ignore or block out the one question that seems obvious; WHY ? Why would surveillance (in attempt to make it sound suspicious, it’s been labeled ; spying) be of any concern whatsoever, for someone with clean hands? Please, asking sincerely and confessing my agenda; to confront and dissolve efforts designed to damage democratic govd. nations, take a moment to think at length about how you may actually be working against your own best interests, cloaked in illusions of GOP Values. Values ? You mean like ethical or moral etc, Values ? Really? How long can we stand as a house divided?
