GLENN: It’s time the Russia investigation was put on hold. At this point, the DoJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves rather than a case as critical as Russia.
It came out yesterday on Meet the Press that the special counsel was busy trying to piece together what happened inside the White House after senior officials were told Mike Flynn was susceptible to blackmail. Ok sounds good, but why is Muller still bogged down over that? Hand that off and get busy investigating - oh I don’t know - the largest hostile intelligence operation conducted against the United States IN OUR HISTORY. You know… that little thing when Russia attempted to interfere with the election. The crime you’re supposed to be concentrating on. Because last time I checked, the election happened months BEFORE the Trump transition period. If you see obstruction of justice there, GREAT - well not really great - but get someone else to take that on.
So back to the campaign and Russia. We STILL don’t know how a company like Fusion GPS became so influential in this investigation. Fusion GPS, a company that was employed by the Russians, The Clinton Campaign, and the DNC. Does it sound like the information you’d get from them might be JUST a little bit biased? Apparently, that knowledge was either lost on the FBI and DoJ or they just didn’t care because we now know that the FBI was trying to pay to have a Fusion GPS operative continue his work.
When the House Intelligence Committee began pushing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to answer to some of these things, they started to get a little pushback. Now, what possible motive would Rosenstein have for stonewalling Congress? It came out last week that senior DoJ Official Bruce Ohr, was demoted after it was found out that he had secret meetings with the head of Fusion GPS. That alone sounds bad, but that was sooo last week. Yesterday, Fox News reported that not only was Ohr holding secret meetings with Fusion GPS, but his wife was also working for them as well. She was employed by Fusion GPS while the Trump Dossier was being compiled. Before working at Fusion GPS she worked at a Washington think tank where her specialty was described as… a Russia expert.
Wanna take any guesses on where Ohr’s office was at the DoJ? Well low and behold… a few doors down from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Whether something nefarious happened here or not, you could very easily make the case that this was the reason the outlandish Trump Dossier was used to possibly get FISA warrants to spy on a presidential candidate. You could also make the case that the bias is so thick that it’s also the reason why the Special Counsel seems so hell-bent on proving obstruction of justice rather than finding out who was involved in possibly the worst foreign intelligence attack in our history.
So to the DoJ and FBI, can you get your houses in order? This is getting embarrassing. Someone needs to step up and figure out how we were so easily hacked and infiltrated by the Russians. I don’t care if it’s Joe Friday, Perry Mason or Jim Rockford… we need outside investigators. Time is running out.
