Lindsey Graham is convinced that, “whitewashing that report to the Senate Intel Committee is potentially another crime.” The FBI knew for more than a year before the Valentine’s Day meeting in 2018 that Christopher Steele’s dirty dossier “was a bunch of garbage.” The senator is sending a referral to John Durham for more criminal charges. He exposed evidence that Christopher Wray just told him about the former head of FBI counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, and wants Durham to take a hard look into it.
Obama’s FBI acted more like organized crime
Trey Gowdy was sitting in for Sean Hannity over at Fox on Friday when South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham dropped in to talk about the latest Obamagate developments. He related that recently he had an informative chat with alleged FBI director Christopher Wray, who threw Bill Priestap under the bus for the crime of lying to Congress in a meeting Wray set up specifically for the purpose in 2018.
Back on February 14, 2018, Bill Priestap was head of counterintelligence for the Deep State Federal Bureau of Instigation. He also just happened to be “the leader in the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, code-named Crossfire Hurricane.” He held the number two slot in the department from 2015 to December of 2018, then got the promotion, despite his life of crime.
When Robert Mueller’s expensive witch hunt of an inquisition failed to find a single thing to burn President Donald Trump at the stake with, the Obamagate crime spree started to unravel. In April of 2019, Muller was forced to finally admit he “did not establish” any criminal collusion between any Russians and anyone in Trump’s orbit because there wasn’t any.
Priestap officially started the witch hunt
Everyone knows that Peter Strzok was “involved in the decision to initiate the counterintelligence investigation into Trump and Russia.” He wasn’t the one who signed off on it and made it official. Priestap “made the actual authorization in late July 2016.” Some say it’s basically a crime of treason.
It was also Priestap’s handwritten notes which exonerated General William Flynn. He jotted down enough the day the FBI interviewed Trump’s incoming National Security adviser to strongly suggest the FBI committed the crime of entrapment. They intended to charge him for lying to the FBI if he said it was a nice day. “What is our goal?” Priestap scribbled. “Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
Flynn’s crime was pre-determined in advance. “If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ and have them decide… or, if initially lies, then we present him [REDACTED] and he admits it, document for DOJ, and let them decide how to address it.”
An expert on lies
Priestap is an expert on lies. He committed the crime of perjury in February of 2018 when he swore under oath to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump dossier was “reliable.” He knew full well for over a year that it was totally debunked. Worse, Steele had been the victim of a “Russian disinformation campaign” and fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
“This is a big day for transparency and the rule of law,” Graham told Gowdy. His committee is furious to learn they were lied to because at the time, they “had real concerns about the Russian subsource.” That’s the whole reason “they asked the FBI to come in and brief them. So I asked Director Wray, ‘Who did the briefing?’ Well, it’s Bill Priestap, who’s this guy? He’s one of the leaders of Crossfire Hurricane.” Lying to Congress is a crime.
As Graham explained slowly so everyone could follow, in 2017, the only source for Steele’s nonsense testified, “there is zero corroboration for the dossier, I wouldn’t trust it with a solid grain of salt, hearsay, bar talk.” Over a year later the FBI decided to intentionally commit a crime. “Now, you’ve got Bill Priestap on Feb. 15, 2018, with four other people from the FBI briefing this Senate Intel Committee, completely whitewashing the truth about the reliability of the dossier.”
