The exoneration of General Flynn proves the Comey/Obama spying on the Trump Campaign was illegal. It also proves the FBI “Crossfire-Hurricane” investigation was a fraud. In a headline Rand Paul claimed Brennan, Clapper, Comey ‘sent spies into the Trump campaign’.
Senator Paul claimed members of the intelligence community who served under former President Obama sent “spies” into President Trump‘s presidential campaign.
In an interview with “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning, the senator alluded to a “source” that he said supplied him with information about alleged efforts by members of Obama’s Justice Department to gather information on the Trump campaign’s activities.
“Well my source tells me that the intelligence community, Obama’s intelligence community, [former CIA Director John] Brennan, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [former FBI Director James] Comey, they were frustrated because they had this Russian dossier but nobody believed it was real,” Paul said, referring to a dossier of claims about Trump and Russia that had been compiled by a former British spy named Christopher Steele.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, and the Democratic National Committee hired Washington firm Fusion GPS, which then turned to Steele, to conduct research about Trump’s ties to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and Moscow.
“It wasn’t verifiable, they couldn’t get anything out of it,” Paul continued. “So they sent spies into the Trump campaign, they tried to entrap Trump officials to admit they were working with Russia. That wasn’t working, so they were frustrated.”
“But they wanted to somehow get this information out — this Russian dossier … So finally they decided … what we have to do is attach this dossier, this fake dossier, to an intelligence report [given to Obama],” he claimed.
But we will have to wait until after the election to find out if Comey will be prosecuted for illegal spying. If Joe Biden wins Comey walks. If Trump wins and that’s the way to bet, Comey may face prosecution.
There’s no doubt Comey illegally spied on the Trump campaign.
