Republicans in Congress found the smoking gun.
Donald Trump and his supporters claimed the Russia investigation is a witch hunt.
And now the FBI is in big trouble after what this witness just said.
FBI lawyer Lisa Page dropped a bombshell.
She testified to Congress that the FBI found no evidence of Russian collusion when Robert Mueller was appointed in 2017.
Fox News reports:
More than nine months after the FBI opened its highly classified counterintelligence investigation into alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, FBI lawyer Lisa Page said investigators still could not say whether there was collusion, according to a transcript of Page’s recent closed-door deposition reviewed by Fox News.
“I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” Page said.
Page was responding to Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who wanted more information about a May 2017 text where Page, and her then colleague and lover FBI agent Peter Strzok discussed the merits of joining Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Page sat for the transcribed interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia and Clinton email probes.
These text messages are the smoking gun.
They confirm the Mueller investigation is illegitimate.
The FBI used spies and FISA wiretaps against the Trump campaign.
And they turned up no evidence on collusion.
