The Story Behind the FBI Freak Out Over Trump’s Wire-Tapping Tweet

The lawyers representing Crooked Hillary Clinton's attorney Michael Sussman released notes from the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) in the Sussman case a couple of days ago. The lawyers shared the FBI notes with the hope of exonerating Sussman–or, at the very least, tricking the judge into dropping the charges. This didn't happen. The notes make Sussman's friends in the FBI appear even more guilty.

Then-President Donald Trump caused the FBI to be in a state of panic after he posted his well-known “Obama wiretap” tweet. The documents indicate that the FBI was in panic mode and may have committed a crime in response to the tweet. Also, Sussman's lawyers could have accidentally ratted out some of the Russia-collusion hoaxers.

Trump tweeted in the early days of March 2017 his claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. “Sick guy!” This was in the transition phase during which Dana Boente was the acting attorney general. Jeff Sessions had not been confirmed by the Senate at the time. The FBI was also aware with absolute certainty as early as March 2017 that the Russia-collusion allegations were a fraud that had been invented by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The FBI became agitated over Trump's tweet, as they had been monitoring Trump Tower. It was discovered that the Clinton Campaign had a technology executive, Rodney Joffe, spy on Donald Trump at the Trump Tower and the White House, including private data. Any data collected from this wiretapping was transferred to the FBI.

The FBI had also attempted to capture Trump’s campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, in a childishly transparent honey trap in London. They also had an illegally obtained FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant to monitor Carter Page, an elaboration of the Steele “dossier,” which they knew was false.

The FBI was conducting all of this illegal activity against a president in the midst of his presidency, and then the president abruptly confronted them about it. “What does Trump know?” they asked. Their interim boss, Acting Attorney General Dana Boente, called the FBI and asked questions. Within two days of when Trump tweeted his tweet, the FBI had to explain to the Department of Justice (DOJ) bosses that in reality, “We were listening in on Trump.” They also tried to make sure that their claims were correct.

As they had no idea they'd be caught, the FBI suddenly found themselves with a plethora of documents they had to lie to Acting AG Boente about. The documents from that time, which were made public by Sussman’s lawyers, show that the FBI was actually spying on the Trump transition team. (This was long known, but it's the first time that this has been confirmed.) The DOJ made notes of the initial meeting. Those notes are what Sussman’s lawyers handed over.

The FBI repeatedly told Boente that it was a fact that the Steele dossier was “Crown reporting.” This could have meant there was no doubt that the Steele dossier was real British intelligence and not a jumble of lies created out of the air by drunk Ukrainians with whom one disgraced former British spy had sat down in an establishment. The FBI knew that the Steele dossier was a complete ripoff when the March 2017 meeting was held.

They claimed to the acting attorney general that the Carter Page FISA warrants were “fruitful” in uncovering more evidence. This was a falsehood. There was never anything resembling “evidence” found during the time they spied on Page. The FBI also made a shady deal with their bosses about the Russian Alfa Bank allegations against Trump. The FBI was able to determine the truth within a few days of Sussman giving them the fake evidence. They then told their bosses they were right to conceal their tracks.

Do you think Sussman’s lawyer suspected they were, in fact, ratting out their client's FBI ties when they gave them the notes? Perhaps Special Prosecutor John Durham just handed a number of indictments to his adversaries due to dumb luck?
