When it was released earlier this year, the 449-page Mueller Report revealed no so-called collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
That begs the question: why was there an investigation in the first place, and what prompted the investigation?This question has led Attorney General William Barr to order an investigation of the investigators
.Barr has appointed U.S. attorney John Durham to investigate whether intelligence collection efforts that targeted the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate.”
Fox News reported that “sources familiar with the matter say the focus of the probe includes the pre-transition period—before Nov. 7, 2016—including the use and initiation of informants, as well as potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. (FISA) abuses.
A primary focus of the investigation will be how the FISA warrant was obtained to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. It has been known for some time that the warrant was obtained using a discredited dossier obtained by British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

That’s a red flag right there. Winer’s role in facilitating the Trump-Russia misinformation campaign began in the summer of 2016, months before the election.
Last Thursday, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported that they had 84 pages of documents that revealed that the “Obama State Department was central to advancing the Russian collusion hoax narrative prior to the 2016 presidential election.
Included in the documents is a ‘September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steel, discussing a face-to-face meeting on a Russia matter.’
”I wonder what they could mean by “Russia matter.”?Presumably, they weren’t getting together to discuss Russian architecture and vodka. I’d be willing to bet that it had to do with pushing a discredited dossier in the media.The Hoax Continues…
