Parallel to the formal impeachment “inquiry” being conducted by the Democrats is another, far more worrisome investigation.
After a 22 months long, $25 million probe into whether or not the President of The United States “colluded” with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, Robert Mueller showed his hand. It was not enough for the Democrats, and so they folded, only to now initiate their UkraineGate conspiracy theory to replace the RussiaGate ruse.
But why on earth was Russia in the mix to begin with? Where did this cockamamy idea come from in the first place?
That’s what the Department of Justice is attempting to get to the bottom of now, but some witnesses in the case are complaining of unusual “restrictions” in the probe.
People interviewed about the FBI’s actions during the Russia investigation are concerned the report will portray their words inaccurately and feel as though they are being put in a defenseless position because of “unusual restrictions,” according to the Washington Post.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz has invited witnesses and their lawyers to review relevant portions of a draft report, allowing them the opportunity to offer input and objections.
The Washington Post report cited sources who said the comments can only be conveyed verbally, not in writing as is the norm, leaving witnesses without the ability to develop a paper trail should they want to contest anything they view as inaccurate or misleading in the final report.
The Washington Post report also said witnesses were being asked to view these sections of the document, which is marked “Top Secret,” in a secure area, must sign nondisclosure agreements, and have been told they are not allowed to remove any notes they make about the report.
The concern is that an unverifiable set of rumors known as the Steele Dossier may have been used as evidence in order for the FBI to receive a warrant to wiretap then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. If this is found to be true, that would amount to the previous administration using their power to gather information on a political rival during an election year.
