By now it’s been exposed to the masses that the crooked FBI was involved in the creation of the Russia-collusion narrative, but a new revelation reveals that this web of corruption goes even DEEPER than we originally thought.
Back in 2016, the FBI secretly helped the Hillary Clinton campaign advance the LIE that Donald Trump was some kind of Russian asset. This would then become the left-wing talking point for years to come before it was exposed as a massive conspiracy.
Once Congress was made aware that the FBI and the DOJ were involved in what was effectively a coup attempt, House and Senate oversight committees began investigating the Justice Department to try and hold them accountable – but these crooks were steps ahead.
While they were being investigated, the DOJ subpoenaed private phone and email records of multiple congressional staffers to find out EXACTLY what Congress had on them and how they could protect themselves against it.
At its core, the DOJ was using their power to SPY on a congressional investigation into them to make sure they got off scot-free.
Jason Foster, founder of Virginia-based whistleblower firm Empower Oversight revealed in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and other DOJ officials that he learned the DOJ had subpoenaed records of his Google Voice telephone number. The subpoena required the tech giant to provide all telephone connection records and text message logs for Foster’s private Google account from Dec. 1, 2016, to May 1, 2017.
During that time, Foster served as the chief investigative counsel to Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley. In that role, he directed congressional oversight into misconduct at the Justice Department.
Foster’s firm went on to reveal that the DOJ didn’t stop with him.
The DOJ reportedly subpoenaed other House and Senate staffers who worked with the oversight committees – regardless of political affiliation.
Another staffer on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) also had their private records subpoenaed on Sept. 12, 2017.
In January 2018, then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena the personal records of HPSCI staffers during a heated January 2018 closed-door meeting concerning oversight requests served on the DOJ.
However, the DOJ had ALREADY done this.
There was absolutely ZERO legal precedence for any of these subpoenas but the DOJ was blatantly willing to trample all over the constitutional rights of these individuals if it meant keeping themselves safe from facing justice over their attempts to help Hillary Clinton steal the 2016 election.
As Empower Oversight points out, “the entire exercise looks like a pretext to gather intelligence on those conducting oversight of the Department.”
Our Justice Department is not just rigging elections, but using their power to stop ANYBODY from holding them accountable. These are dangerous times in America.
