For years now, there have been concerns that the entire “RussiaGate” investigation undertaken by Robert Mueller was a ruse of sorts, meant to stifle President Donald Trump or, worse yet, somehow reverse the results of the 2016 election.
Much of this speculation has occurred on account of the bizarre ways and means in which the investigators conducted themselves. There is, of course, the very real concerns about the use of the “Steele Dossier” to obtain FISA warrants, despite the well-known fact that the dossier itself was unverifiable, and whose more salacious tidbits were traced back to decades-old Wall Street Journal rumors.
Then, after it was discovered that FBI agents had discussed attempting to coerce lies out of General Michael Flynn, presumably for the purpose of charging him for those lies, Americans everywhere began to see the writing on the wall.
Now, the DOJ is getting involved, and the unscrupulous FBI spooks involved in this scheme could be facing some serious charges of their own.
U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham has reviewed the bombshell files released earlier this week showing FBI officials discussed whether they wanted to interview Michael Flynn in order to “get him to lie,” sources familiar with his investigation told Fox News, as the document drop renews attention on his probe of the law enforcement community’s Russia case.
Sources even said charges could be justified against officials, and that those reviewing the Justice Department and the FBI’s actions are building a “serious case.” Durham and Attorney General Bill Barr are said to be speaking regularly.
“Durham has seen all of this already,” one source told Fox News, adding that they “could be sufficient for some charges against agents.”
“It’s a crime to present under oath false or misleading information,” the source told Fox News. “Not to mention obstruction of justice.”
Another source also told Fox News that the files have been reviewed by Durham and Jeff Jensen, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri who was tapped by the Justice Department in February to review the Flynn case specifically.
“They’re building a very serious case,” the second source told Fox News in reference to Durham’s team.
General Flynn is currently working with his new counsel to withdraw his previous guilty plea, on account of these revelations.
