Congressmen Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have a list of names. Names of left-wing media reporters who swooped in like vultures for tidbits of unsubstantiated information carefully calculated to harm President Donald Trump. “They are denying it, and we have the proof that would suggest otherwise,” Meadows insists.
“There are dozens of documents that support the fact that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had ongoing relationships with multiple reporters, and that they were feeding them information to spin a narrative against this president, It’s not legal, and it’s against protocol.”
In an ideal world, the “senior administration officials” who conspired against President Trump would be in prison by now for “leaking like mad.”
It wasn’t just Strzok and Page feeding the trolls either. “We know that James Comey leaked, we know that Andrew McCabe leaked,” Meadows asserts, “and look, we got names. We also have the reporters’ names.”
Rep. Jordan previously told Fox Business that “one Left-wing ‘mainstream’ reporter had 13 contacts in the FBI feeding him information.” That makes “the bureau nothing less than a Soviet-style propaganda mill for the Deep State.”
The Obama era Deep State goes even deeper than the justice department. Central Intelligence Agency involvement has already been established. New Strzok-Page text messages released in the latest batch from the Inspector General’s investigation call even more agencies into question.
Strzok tapped out, “Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried, and political, they’re kicking into overdrive.”
That was “the same day that several news outlets reported that ‘U.S. intelligence officials’ said they were convinced that Russian President Vladimir Putin was personally involved, and approved Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election,” Fox News reports.
“Sisters is an odd phrase to use,” retired FBI special agent John Iannarelli explains. “It could be any intelligence agency or any other federal law enforcement agency. The FBI works with all of them because, post 9/11, it’s all about cooperation and sharing.”
On December 15, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent and his Department of Justice attorney lover had a lengthy conspiratorial exchange regarding planned leaks of classified information for political reasons. Page started the thread. “Oh, remind me to tell you tomorrow about the times doing a story about the rnc hacks,” referring to the Republican National Committee.
“And more than they already did? I told you Quinn told me they’re pulling out all the stops on some story…” Strzok replied. Quinn may be Richard Quinn, chief of the Media and Investigative Publicity Section in the Office of Public Affairs, an inside source advises.
Another New York Times story, published January 10, 2017, alleged that Russian agents “gained limited access” to the Republican National Committee.
By a not-so-strange coincidence, that was the same day BuzzFeed picked to publish the raw and uncut Christopher Steele dossier.
As Page and Strzok continued their conversation, they discussed whether or not they might be able to get away with leaking some classified information, they were sure it was about to be declassified anyway.
Strzok wrote, “And we need to talk more about putting C reporting in our submission. They’re going to declassify all of it…” Page replied, “I know. But they’re going to declassify their stuff, how do we withhold…” C is agency shorthand for “classified.”
Hillary Clinton claimed she didn’t know that was what all the little “(c)” marks in her emails were for. “When asked what the parenthetical ‘C’ meant before a paragraph … Clinton stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” the FBI wrote in notes from its interview with her.
Strzok knew it would be risky. “We will get extraordinary questions. What we did what we’re doing. Just want to ensure everyone is good with it and has thought thru all implications. CD should bring it up with the DD.”
CD is likely “Cyber Division” and DD probably Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was fired for leaking to the media and lying about it to investigators.
Rep. Jordan told viewers how the steady drip of leaks coming as they did at “the height of Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation,” served to “push anti-Trump propaganda” and trick the public into believing “the Mueller probe was legitimate.”
“Transparency is a good thing,” Jordan exclaimed. “The dossier was a big lie. What they did is, they said, ‘It’s a big lie. The more people we can get to talk about the dossier, the more likely it is they will believe the lie.’”
Worse, they used the news reports based on leaks from the dossier to validate the dossier itself to the FISA court, which is fraud.
“That’s why they had the leak strategy,” Jordan continued, “to support a document that was the basis of everything. That’s the big problem here. They took that dossier, this untrue document, to the secret court and didn’t tell the court important facts.” They did it, “to get a warrant.”
Fox’s Sean Hannity asked for clarification, “Didn’t they purposely lie to the FISA court, purposely withhold pertinent information from the FISA court? Isn’t that a fraud perpetrated on a court?”
Jordan agreed that it was. “They didn’t tell them who paid for the dossier [Hillary Clinton and the DNC]. Didn’t tell them that the guy who wrote it, Christopher Steele, had an extreme bias against the president and said he was desperate to stop Trump and they didn’t tell the court about Bruce and Nellie Ohr’s involvement in the production of the document.”
“If you and I go to a court,” he added, “we’ve got to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
Hiding “material facts” which would tend to influence the judge’s decision is a crime.
“All the documents,” Meadows declares, “need to be made available to the American people. Let them judge. We have nothing to hide. The president has nothing to hide. Let’s get it out there.”
