After all of this, we might never see this debacle of a report? Are you kidding me?
Wonder why they are now admitting this?
FBI acknowledges using multiple informants, including some that were paid, in investigation of Trump campaign aide.
The U.S. government revealed Friday that it used multiple informants to obtain information against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
In court filings, government officials also revealed confidential human sources were paid for their work.
The FBI relied heavily on an uncorroborated dossier to obtain warrants to spy on Page.
The U.S. government revealed in court filings Friday that the FBI used multiple confidential informants, including some who were paid for their information, as part of its investigation into former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI has protected information that would identify the identities of other confidential sources who provided information or intelligence to the FBI” as well as “information provided by those sources,” wrote David M. Hardy, the head of the FBI’s Record/Information Dissemination Section (RIDS), in court papers submitted Friday.
Hardy and Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys submitted the filings in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for the FBI’s four applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Page. The DOJ released heavily redacted copies of the four FISA warrant applications on June 20, but USA Today reporter Brad Heath has sued for full copies of the documents.
Hardy’s declaration acknowledged that the confidential sources used by the FBI were in addition to Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
“This includes nonpublic information about and provided by Christopher Steele, as well as information about and provided by other confidential sources, all of whom were provided express assurances of confidentiality,” Hardy wrote, referring to information disclosed in the four FISA applications.
Rosenstein’s Interview with Congress Postponed
The House Judiciary and Oversight Committee chairmen announced they "are unable to ask all questions within the time allotted" for the Rosenstein interview
House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) announced Tuesday evening that they would be postponing their Wednesday interview with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because they were “unable to ask all questions” of the embattled Justice Department official.
“The Committees are unable to ask all questions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein within the time allotted for tomorrow’s transcribed interview, therefore, the interview will be postponed,” the chairmen said in a statement.
Papadopoulos: FBI Withheld Exculpatory Information from Secret Court
Former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopolous may hold the key to some of the most important questions lawmakers have been asking in recent months about the FBI’s handling of the Russia probe into the Trump campaign: Did the FBI withhold exculpatory evidence from America’s most secret court? And if so, what was it?
And on Thursday the former Trump campaign volunteer said he would testify before lawmakers that the bureau did exactly just that.
“Obviously George Papadopoulos was the reason why this whole Russia investigation was opened,” said Rep. Mark Meadows on Thursday to reporters as he made his way into the closed-door hearing. “Hopefully we’ll learn today what was said and what was not said. I think what will find is that this was not colluding with Russia.”
Papadopoulos pled guilty to Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel in September for one count of lying to the FBI and was sentenced to 14 days in prison. In an interview with SaraACarter.com and John Solomon with The Hill earlier this week, Papadopoulos said that he made it perfectly clear to an undercover bureau operative and British based professor Stefan Halper, that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
I repeat:James Clapper is currently in Australia colluding with their government to cover both his and Alexander Downer’s involvement in the most profound, and illegal, spying operation against an American and the presidential campaign he worked for in history. Bad look Australia
