Trump supporters have been waiting for this day.
The Department of Justice finally is ready to make public its findings on the Obama Deep State’s abuse of power in the 2016 election.
And William Barr sat in silence when he saw this report about Obama spying on Trump.
Deep State leakers are already racing to get ahead of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s use of FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.
FBI officials that read the report leaked its findings to the fake news New York Times in order to frame the conclusions in the most favorable light possible.
For instance, The Times claims Horowitz will “debunk” President Trump’s claim that the FBI spied on his campaign despite the report outlining the fact that the FBI deployed undercover agents to gather intelligence from Trump campaign aides under false pretenses.
The New York Times reports:
The Justice Department’s inspector general found no evidence that the F.B.I. attempted to place undercover agents or informants inside Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016 as agents investigated whether his associates conspired with Russia’s election interference operation.
…Mr. Trump and his allies have pointed to some of the investigative steps the F.B.I. took as evidence of spying, though they were typical law enforcement activities. For one, agents had an informant, an academic named Stefan A. Halper, meet with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos while they were affiliated with the campaign. The president decried the revelation as an “all time biggest political scandal” when it emerged last year.
The F.B.I. did have an undercover agent who posed as Mr. Halper’s assistant during a London meeting with Mr. Papadopoulos in August 2016. And indeed, another Trump adviser, Peter Navarro, reportedly pushed Mr. Halper for an ambassadorship in the Trump administration.
That is the dictionary definition of spying.
Horowitz’s report is also expected the criticize the FBI for serious mistakes – including one possible act of criminal conduct – in how the FBI carried out the spying on the Trump campaign.
