JOHN SOLOMON, SARA A. CARTER APPEAR TO REACH SIMILAR CONCLUSIONS AS TO LAUNCH OF TRUMP “RUSSIA” PROBE
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 1, 2018) — On Friday night’s “Hannity” in an opening statement to a discussion about FBI activity, investigative reporter John Solomon of The Hill told host Sean Hannity that “ten years ago,” the FBI “intercepted” his emails in the course of his research.
Las July, Solomon became executive vice president of “video” at The Hill, a mainstream outlet which covers Congress. His bio reads, “John Solomon is an award-winning investigative journalist whose work over the years has exposed U.S. and FBI intelligence failures before the Sept. 11 attacks, federal scientists’ misuse of foster children and veterans in drug experiments, and numerous cases of political corruption.“
The statement was made in response to Hannity’s having publicized a new book by Dr. Jerome Corsi, “Killing the Deep State,” which alleges that Hannity is the “next target” of entrenched political operatives within federal-government agencies known as “the Deep State.”
When Hannity asked Solomon if he believed Corsi’s claim, Solomon said, “I hope not; we hope everyone follows the law,” he then disclosed that the FBI conducted its surveillance of him.
Solomon spoke further about a report introduced on Thursday night, published as an article on Friday, that new text messages exchanged between FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page give the impression that the Obama White House “was running” the FBI’s probe of the Trump campaign for alleged Russian “collusion” to win the election. His new article is titled, “London ‘bridges’ falling down: Curious origins of FBI’s Trump-Russia probe” and is classified as an “Opinion” column.
Previously, texts between Strzok and Page were revealed as having said that “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing.” Many of the text messages are partially redacted.
“Somebody said ‘the [Obama] White House is now running this,'” Solomon said he was told by an official following a meeting. He said that the new emails reveal that “informants” and “opposition researchers” were making contact with members of the Trump campaign months before the official opening of the probe, claimed by the FBI to be July 31, 2016.
Solomon’s appearance was followed by investigative reporter Sara A. Carter, who published a lengthy article Friday containing a timeline of known events associated with the FBI’s investigation of the campaign purportedly for signs of Russian “collusion.”
An American professor associated with Cambridge University in the UK is said to have contacted at least three members of the campaign, offering to “help” Trump but, according to Carter’s article, stating just before the 2016 election that Hillary Clinton “would be the better candidate.”
According to Carter’s sources, the investigation was initiated in Europe and could involve an exchange of information among the “Five Eyes” nations comprising the U.S., Canada, the UK, New Zealand and Australia. A Maltese professor also associated with Cambridge, Thomas Mifsud, whose current whereabouts are said to be unknown, is also thought to have been involved in developing the narrative that someone within the Trump campaign had inside information about Russia and Hillary Clinton.
Carter’s research shows that the Trump investigation likely began earlier than the July 31, 2016 date provided to the public by the FBI.
Mifsud was discussed on the previous program, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” by former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer Dan Bongino.
Carter closed her interview with “Congress needs to act on” the new revelations.
