• Trey Gowdy: Hillary Clinton’s Involvement in ‘Dossier’ Incident Was ‘Highly Problematic’

    Surge Summary: Former South Carolina Republican Representative Trey Gowdy charges that a phony, Hillary Clinton-DNC funded hit piece was used by James Comey’s FBI to trigger the entire Russia investigation against Trump. This, he observes, is a big problem.

    The popular conservative — former South Carolina Republican Representative —  Trey Gowdy continues to be threat to Deep State. No one in Congress has done more than the former criminal prosecutor to expose and destroy the corrupt officials operating within the U.S. government, according to a report sent to the National Association of Chiefs of Police.

    During an interview on Fox News Channel, Gowdy highlighted his strong evidence alleging that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton knowingly betrayed America by pushing false information and an equally false narrative to destroy President Donald Trump while he campaigned.in 2016 and during his transition after he was victorious against Clinton and the “Deep State.”

    While he spoke with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Gowdy claimed the FBI heavily relied on and cited information from Sidney Blumenthal — a longtime Clinton friend, ally and fixer — as corroboration for claims made in the still unproven Steele “dirty dossier.”

    This, Gowdy alleges, is “highly problematic.”

    Gowdy also told MacCallum that while he was still in Congress, he saw an FBI spreadsheet that detailed all of the specific claims in the Christopher Steele/GPS Fusion dossier. This information is highly classified, so Gowdy took a big risk to reveal some of its contents on live television. (See video of MacCallum-Gowdy interview posted below.)

    “I’ve seen the spreadsheet, Martha, I have seen each factual assertion listed in that dossier, and then I’ve seen the FBI’s justification. And when you’re citing newspaper articles as corroboration for a factual assertion that you have made, you don’t need an FBI agent to go do a Google search,” said Gowdy, who served on the House Intelligence Committee.

    “When the name Sidney Blumenthal is included as part of your corroboration, and when you’re the world’s leading law enforcement agency, you have a problem,” he added.

    So, what does this have to do with Hillary Clinton?

    From late 2015 to early 2016, the left-wing firm Fusion GPS hired Steele — a former British intelligence officer with Great Britain’s MI6—to compile the dossier.

    As the 2016 presidential election was ramping up, Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS roughly $9 million to fund Steele’s anti-Trump operation.

    The FBI, which was led by fired FBI Director James Comey at the time, used the Clinton-DNC funded dossier to launch the Russia investigation against Trump.

    These activities led to the appointment of Robert Mueller to be appointed as the special counsel and lead a two-year long witch hunt into Trump.

    Consider that: a Clinton-DNC funded hit piece was used by Comey’s FBI to trigger the entire Russia investigation against Trump.

    The president and Republicans have accused the FBI of improperly relying on the unverified dossier to obtain warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign during the election.

    Gowdy also noted that the FBI did not inform the FISA court judges — which grant or deny surveillance warrants — that Steele was investigating the Trump campaign on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC.

    Blumenthal, who is one of the Clintons’ closest political allies, was at the center of this and played a crucial role in elevating the dossier and the bogus allegations about Trump to the highest level of the federal government.

    The dossier was so phony and salacious that even Mueller’s final report debunked the dossier’s core claim that the Trump campaign was involved in a “well-developed conspiracy of co-ordination” with the Russian government.

    Mueller’s team was unable to find any evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, which is exactly what the Clinton-DNC dossier alleged.

    Clinton and her allies attempted to use a totally false dossier to remove Trump, the duly elected president of the United States.

    That is arguably the biggest political scandal in modern American history.
