Kirsters Baish| The Hill’s John Solomon spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday evening. He explained that the Obama Administration had tried to take over the investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged “ties” with Russia.
Solomon explained, “I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear…”
Hannity responded, “Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.”
Solomon confirmed, “That’s what these messages say.”
Hannity questioned, “These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?
“We don’t know the messages are just what they are,” Solomon stated.
Solomon explained that he was planning to released the story early on Friday morning.
Take a look at the video of the interview below:
According to Solomon, the FBI started surveilling Donald Trump’s presidential campaign weeks or even months prior to having approval of doing so. On top of that, Solomon gave details about why these uncovered text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress/fellow FBI agent Lisa Page are proof that the Obama White House tried to take control of the Trump/Russia probe. Keep in mind that Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor, Ben Rhodes, had made conflicting reports.
In his book, “The World As It Is,” Rhodes claimed that Obama did not know about the probe until the election was over.
It’s only a matter of time before the truth all comes out.
