House Intelligence Committee Chairman/Republican Representative Devin Nunes of California appeared on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo to talk about the most recent happenings in the House’s investigation into the Deep State-run FBI and DOJ’s surveillance on the Trump campaign and White House.
The mainstream media has remained silent when it comes to the horrifying realization that the Obama White House and head Department of Justice officials illegally surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential cycle, and even after Trump took office.
Top lawyer to the Democratic Party Michael Sussman had a meeting with a top DOJ attorney in order to hand over the fabricated Russian “dossier.” The Justice Department used the unverified document in order to get the go ahead to spy on the Trump campaign.
Representative Nunes explained, “James Baker was the top lawyer at the FBI. He reported directly to James Comey. Numerous officials at the DOJ and FBI have told us under oath that nobody at the FBI or DOJ knew anything about the Democratic Party being behind the Clinton (Russian dossier) dirt. Well now you have one of the top lawyers for the Democrats and the Clinton Campaign who was feeding information directly to the top lawyer at the FBI before even the FISA warrant. So now you have absolute proof that that wasn’t told to the FISA court. So you want your evidence of FISA abuse? There it is right there… People should know it’s probably not appropriate for a top lawyer from the Democratic Party to take dirt and give it to the top lawyer of the FBI… Don’t forget. Originally the story from FBI and DOJ was that Republicans had started this information and given this information and that has been totally blown out of the water.”
Terminated FBI Director James Comey has continually lied about where the dossier originated.
The DOJ and the FBI did their best to cover it all up.

John Solomon of the Hill reported:
Before you judge the DOJ’s and FBI’s arguments — which are similar to those offered to stop the release of information in other major episodes of American history, from the Bay of Pigs to 9/11 — consider Footnote 43 on Page 57 of Chapter 3 of the House Intelligence Committee’s report earlier this year on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Until this past week, the footnote really had garnered no public intrigue, in part because the U.S. intelligence community blacked out the vast majority of its verbiage in the name of national security before the report was made public.
From the heavy redactions, all one could tell is that FBI general counsel James Baker met with an unnamed person who provided some information in September 2016 about Russia, email hacking and a possible link to the Trump campaign.
From Sunday Morning Futures:
Solomon went on to say:
There is now a concrete storyline backed by irrefutable evidence: The FBI allowed itself to take political opposition research created by one party to defeat another in an election, treated it like actionable intelligence, presented it to the court as substantiated, and then used it to justify spying on an adviser for the campaign of that party’s duly chosen nominee for president in the final days of a presidential election.
And when, nine months later, the FBI could not prove the allegation of collusion between Trump and Russia, unverified evidence was leaked to the media to try to sustain public support for a continued investigation.
That means the redaction of Footnote 43 had more to do with political embarrassment than with national security. And that should concern us all.
Stealth Jeff expressed concern about the redaction on Twitter.
