Kimberly Strassel published an opinion piece for the WSJ on Thursday that outlined some stunning developments in the ongoing battle between the DOJ and House Intelligence Committee members. It reveals that the FBI embedded a mole inside the Trump campaign!
“The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.”
Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes received the classified briefing at the Dept. of Justice about the mole.
The DOJ and FBI tried their best to cover up this information. Strassel revealed that they “outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation.”
House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”
This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.
