Attorney General William Barr is determined to present a full accounting of the Obama administration’s and the FBI’s wrongdoing in the 2016 election.
On Monday, Barr got another step closer to achieving that goal.
And that’s because William Barr exposed some hidden truths that had Barack Obama nervous.
On Monday, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on the FBI’s abuse of power in spying on the Trump campaign.
Attorney General Barr is determined to present the most complete and transparent picture possible to the American people.
To that end, Barr announced information about Christopher Steele – the ex-British spy who put together the fake news Russia dossier – that was previously redacted would now be made public.
Fox News reports:
Christopher Steele, the British ex-spy and author of the anti-Trump dossier, was reportedly told that the Justice Department will release information about him that was previously blacked out in the department’s internal watchdog report on the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign due on Monday.
The New York Times, citing two individuals with knowledge of the situation, reported that Attorney General William Barr approved the release of the previously redacted information in Michael Horowitz’s 400-page report. The report called Steele’s heads-up unusual and said he was not given any indication of whether the information would benefit or hurt him. An after-hours email from Fox News to the Justice Department was not immediately returned.
Steele is poised to be a notable figure in the Horowitz report because he provided opposition research into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia which was funded by Democrats and the Clinton campaign.
Much of the Steele dossier has been proven discredited or unsubstantiated, including the dossier’s claims that the Trump campaign was paying hackers in the United States out of a nonexistent Russian consulate in Miami, and that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to conspire with Russians.
The FBI relied on Steele’s gossip and innuendo as the basis for spying on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Under the direction of Director James Comey, the FBI smeared Page as a Russian agent.
It was all a lie.
And now some of the deepest secrets about Christopher Steele and his role in the Deep State conspiracy against Donald Trump will be made public.
