Once again, the Democrat Party’s past is coming back to haunt them. An newly released email shows that one major left-wing talking point was known to be a lie from the start.
An email was sent by James Comey to James Clapper, which stated that the FBI could not verify the information provided in the Steele Dossier, which was used to promote the Russia Collusion Hoax.
Almost immediately afterward, Comey signed a FISA application that required him to swear that the information was verified.
As Unite America First reports, “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 FBI had reportedly received several warnings that Christopher Steele was not credible, that he had a deep hatred for President Trump, and that the dossier was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. Yet, left-wing political actors in the government ignored these warnings and used the unverified dossier to attack Trump and his allies.
Comey ignored these warnings, and the fact that the FBI actually said the dossier was not able to be verified. He decided to push back, asserting that Steele was reliable.
“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,” Comey wrote to Clapper.
Democrats Get Away With Lying
Alongside the information about the Steele Dossier, Comey had also been informed that Carter Page was a long-time CIA operative, meaning that he was not a spy for the Russians, as the left claimed. Page, the 2016 Trump campaign’s foreign policy adviser, was actually an informant against the Russians. Yet, the document stating this was forged by ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith to say the opposite. Somehow, Clinesmith got off with a light sentence for his crime.
The fact that left-wing political actors like Comey and Clinesmith are able to get away with illegal actions taken to undermine their political opponents is ridiculous, yet it happens so often. It seems that being a Democrat means never having to take responsibility for your actions.
