Durham Probe Proves FBI KNEW That RussiaGate WAS A LIE!

During the run-up to the 2016 election, the Democrats attempted to perform one of the dirtiest political maneuvers of all time, in suggesting to the American electorate that Donald Trump was somehow a double agent of the Kremlin.

In order to do so, the left purchased and procured unverifiable information suggesting that Vladimir Putin was blackmailing Trump with some strange info stemming from the NYC business mogul’s unsanitary preferences in Muscovite prostitutes. This was, again, unverified and unverifiable.

Now, years later, John Durham’s probe of this “RussiaGate” theory has proven that the FBI knew that the conspiracy theory was a hoax, but continued to exploit the public perception anyway.

Declassified for Durham’s probe, a March 2017 memo prepared by Lisa Page for FBI head James Comey’s meeting with Congress’ “Gang of Eight” — the bipartisan House and Senate leaders who oversee the most classified stuff — was a total cook-up job.

It advised Comey to present accusations that Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort and foreign policy adviser Carter Page were working with the Russian government as coming from a confidential Russia-based source with real intel-community chops. In fact, the FBI had already established that the root source was US-based former Brookings flunky Igor Danchenko’s utterly speculative gossip with an ex-girlfriend and a Democratic Party hack.

And that wasn’t all…

That, plus publicly reported info, was all Christopher Steele (a retired British spy who doesn’t even speak Russian) ever had to back up his “dossier.” And the FBI knew it since at least January 2017, when it interviewed Danchenko.

And here is where it gets truly ugly:

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence officer Peter Strzok, analyst Brian Auten and Justice attorney Kevin Clinesmith pretended the Danchenko “intel” was credible to get the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court’s OK for wiretaps on Carter Page and dupe the Justice Department to keep granting approval for Trump campaign surveillance (which did not corroborate the wild claims). Again, all while they knewDanchenko had admitted it was baseless.

Durham’s probe has been ongoing for some time, and its results could arrive just in time for the 2022 midterm elections.
