Rep. Jim Jordan: FBI Withheld Key Information from Surveillance Court “Four Times”

AND ALLEGEDLY WITHHELD POLITICAL “BIAS” OF DOSSIER

by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 2, 2018) — In the wake of the release of the four-page House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence (HPSCI) early Friday afternoon, House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH4) tweeted that the ‘”salacious and unverified dossier” compiled by Fusion GPS and the DNC in 2016 was taken to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) more than once to obtain a warrant to collect the communications of at least one Trump campaign aide.

Just before 1:00 p.m. EST, the DNC issued a response to the memo stating that Trump’s relationship with Russia, without using the word “alleged,” should be fully investigated and the American people fully informed.

The implications of having used the “Trump dossier,” compiled by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and paid for by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign via the law firm Perkins Coie, to obtain a surveillance warrant on former Trump economic adviser Carter Page appear to be that the FISA court was not informed of the political connections with which the dossier was assembled.

The memo, which is just over three pages and declassified on Friday, reports that Steele was vehemently opposed to the idea of a Trump presidency as expressed to DOJ Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr.

Steele met with Ohr after Steele was terminated as an FBI source once the FBI learned that Steele had leaked information to news outlets, including Yahoo! News.

Trump has maintained that there was no “collusion” between his campaign and the Kremlin and that the investigation, now headed by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller, III, is a “witch hunt.”

Democrats have defended Mueller’s work and alleged that Trump could also have committed “obstruction of justice” by allegedly asking then-FBI Director James Comey not to pursue an investigation against Trump’s first national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret).

In December, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, although Mueller on Wednesday petitioned the court to postpone Flynn’s sentencing.

Democrats on the HPSCI are said to have prepared a ten-page memo of their own on the dossier matter which has not yet been approved for release.

As this article went to press, Jordan issued a further tweet, which quotes from page 3 of the now-released memo:

    Proof in the pudding. Clinton was a Disciple and aka Barak H. Obama was the Professor.

    CDR Kerchner,

    Your post about why the fear of Trump being elected is excellent. Those complicit in the Obama fraud are desperate to protect themselves. This is the reason why Obama, and anyone who could lead to Obama were, during his entire 8 year usurpation and right up until now, protected from being investigated and certainly from prosecution,….example, people like Hillary who could lead to the truth about Barry. The complicit are desperately trying to protect Obama to protect themselves from being charged with being complicit in the mother of all crimes against America’s citizens and her Constitution…….giving America’s government and her military to the enemy. Many Republicans in Congress also fear the truth about Barry because they sat by in 2009 and did nothing to stop Barry from being sworn in…and covered for him by refusing to do anything during Barry’s entire 8 years. That includes AG Jeff Sessions. Today some Republicans, like those in the Freedom Caucus, seem willing to take on the corruption and I hope their action, along with Donald Trump, will lead to the truth about Barry being fully revealed and acted on.

    I can’t help but to think that the judge who signed the FISA warrants was in on the scam as well. They aren’t giving his name for security reasons. But at what point should this judge have become suspicious after the second signing or the third signing? I just don’t understand this. Someone needs to investigate that judge too.
    I hope Obama’s papers are “unclassified” too.

    No one should be above the law. Yet, currently in this Constitutional Republic, judicial convictions and punishments are inversely proportional in regard to social and/or political status. I am glad Gitmo is still open. If I was in charge, things would be different.

    The Dem Progressive Marxists and far left major media are in engaging in the Saul Alinsky tactic of accusing your enemy of doing what you yourself are doing and with the media help they are engaging in the “big lie” tactic too.

    I concur with Charles. I have said all along that ALL of these scandals and government corruption lead directly to the feet of the person who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama. What most of the media don’t realize is that the more they antagonize, demonize and attempt to box in President Trump they are playing with fire. As we all know, the President has the goods on Obama’s identity fraud and it may be sooner rather than later when he is forced to play his Trump card. I pray that time will come very soon. I will make a prediction that as these investigations drag on and the public begins to connect the dots Obama will be rightfully demonized to such an extent that he may need to leave the country. At a minimum the so-called “presidential” library will never be built.

    I think all roads in this conspiracy by the Dems and Major Media (and the likes of Yahoo News online) to stop Trump from being elected (besides wanting the help the crook Hillary to continue their corruption) lead to Obama and his absolute fear that if Trump got elected that eventually Trump would authorize and investigation into how and why Obama got forged documents entered onto the WhiteHouse.gov government website, the forged draft registration card into the Selective Service System database, and the use of the forged documents in the courts in the various litigation against him. The whole system was living in fear and in total CYA mode to stop Trump from winning and to checkmate him and/or bring him down since he did win. Rush Limbaugh was playing around with such ideas the other day on the radio show. But I still don’t think anyone is going to go there until Trump makes it happen. I sure hope Trump does it, i.e., direct an investigation into the how and why of Obama’s various forged key ID docs.
