They thought they could get away with it, but there’s a chance that they won’t. Newly released emails show that disgraced former FBI Director James Comey lied on a FISA application.
The Democrats’ past is coming back to haunt them. They spent four years screaming “Russia!” over and over again, despite all of the facts and the evidence obviously disproving their claims. A newly released email from Comey to James Clapper show that Comey knew that none of the information in the Steele Dossier, which was used as the basis for the Russia Collusion Hoax, could be verified.
Despite knowing this, Comey went on to sign a FISA application which required him to swear that the information in the Dossier was verified.
Unite America First pointed out the implications of this new information, writing: “That is illegal and the fact that he knew the document could not be verified means that this was an intentional act of subterfuge on Comey’s part.”
The dossier, written by Christopher Steele and paid for by Hillary Clinton‘s campaign, was obviously disinformation. Anyone who actually read it could see that the salacious “evidence” was the product of a coordinated campaign to take down President Trump.
If it wasn’t obvious before, it is now. Reports show that the FBI had been warned several times that Steele was not credible, and that he had a deep hatred for Donald Trump. Yet, somehow the Steele Dossier was reported as complete fact by the left and the mainstream media. Comey allowed this to happen by ignoring the warnings and the fact that the FBI told him that the dossier was not able to be verified.
After being made aware of all of this information, Comey still went on to tell Clapper in his email that everything was fine:
“I just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today. Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say ‘the IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.’ I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be sub-sources in a position to report on such things; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report.”
Democrats Get Away With It
Looking at the case of Kevin Clinesmith, the ex-FBI lawyer who forged a document to help push the hoax, we can see that there are different rules for Democrats than there are for the rest of America. Clinesmith literally altered a document, which originally stated that Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Carter Page was a long-time CIA operative informing against the Russians, to say the opposite. The left then ran with this, saying that Page was a Russian spy. Clinesmith pled guilty to the charges, and was somehow only given one year’s probation and 400 hours of community service, instead of the jail time that he deserved.
Looking at Clinesmith’s sentence, it is likely that Comey, if convicted, will be given the same treatment. Clearly, being a Democrat means never having to take responsibility for your actions.
