Once Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, the Democrats should have known that their little dossier was going to mean trouble for all of them at the FBI and other alphabet soup agencies involved in using it to help procure a super secret wiretap on Carter Page, a Trump campaign volunteer.
They should have known. (Well, maybe they did which is why they were working to get her elected at all costs.)
Now that the dossier itself, if not all of its contents, are a matter of public knowledge, the Trump Department of Justice under the guidance of Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be looking into how the FBI used the dossier. Maybe. Check out how Sessions plays his cards close to his chest with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo.
“Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for the dossier?” Maria Bartiromo, the host of Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” asked Sessions.
“Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate,” he replied.
“That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than a proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you, we’re not going to let that happen.”
Sessions did not provide additional detail about the investigation, which has been urged by Republican lawmakers.
While investigations may be urged, it’s not a good idea to let on what law enforcement has until they are ready to act on it, especially with perpetrators who are flight risks.It looks like wrongdoing is being investigated, but we will not know for sure until any and all indictments actually happen.
