In the DOJ IG report written by Michael Horowitz, it was found that at least 13 different FBI agents leaked to the same liberal reporter. They were part of a program where they would leak fake news to the reporter, and then use that column to apply for a FISA warrant, which would then allow them to spy on that person, violating their constitutional rights. That is exactly how they got the FISA warrant in order to spy on the Trump campaign through Carter page’s FISA warrant.
Rep. Jim Jordan: Remember Stuart when Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General, did his investigation he talked about the fact that one reporter had 13 different individuals at the FBI who were feeding him information. So, there was certainly a leak strategy going on. The most troubling aspect of all of this is that, remember Devin Nunes memo about what they took to the FISA Court. They cited media reports to buttress the dossier which we know wasn’t valid, wasn’t corroborated, wasn’t credible. But they used media reports to buttress the dossier. They were leaking information to the media that they were then using to buttress the document that they were using to then get the warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) the current chairman of the House Freedom Caucus joined Stuart Varney on Wednesday to discuss the latest Strzok-Page text messages released by the DOJ.
The latest text messages from the anti-Trump officials show how they were feeding anti-Trump articles to the press. The newly released documents obtained by the House Oversight Committee reveal Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were discussing a strategy to leak unverified information to the media in an effort to damage President Trump.
