A former top senior advisor and loyalist to President Barack Obama told Fox News Business host Maria Bartiromo Tuesday that the FBI’s false investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and that it conspired with Russia is old news and “why our focus isn’t what’s happening right now.”
This stunning statement came from Obama’s most loyal advisor Valerie Jarrett, who also stated that the investigators in the Trump Russia investigation behaved appropriately, despite a plethora of evidence suggesting otherwise.
Baritromo asked Jarrett, if former FBI Director James Comey knew that former British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier was garbage but he continued to renew warrants to spy on Carter Page, a member of the 2016 Trump campaign, shouldn’t he be prosecuted.
According to several government officials who spoke to SaraACarter.comm Comey is a central figure being investigated by the Justice Department’s criminal probe being headed by Connecticut prosecutor John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General William Barr.
“Well, Maria look I have highly great confidence that our intelligence community, investigators comported themselves responsibly,” Jarrett said.
This “was nearly four years ago and I don’t understand why our focus isn’t on what’s happening right now,” Jarrett added.
Durham’s secret investigation is ongoing and is now a full scale criminal probe into the actions of Obama administration and FBI officials involved.
Jarrett’s comments are infuriating as she, along with so many others in the Obama administration, act as though there is a two tiered justice system.
The probe into Trump and his administration has torn the nation apart and put the nation’s security at risk. Yet, it appears that those involved in the illegal investigation operate with impunity and unless Durham brings indictments and exposes the full scale of what happened to the Trump administration it could happen again.
The malfeasance was widespread in the FBI and now evidence suggested that the most senior members of Obama’s administration were aware that there was no evidence to suggest members of the Trump campaign conspired with Russia. However, it didn’t stop the FBI agents – who were opposed to Trump’s presidency- from continuing their illegal investigation into the President and his team.
Those officials weaponized the intelligence and federal law enforcement apparatus for political purposes. It should never be allowed to happen again.
The investigation was illegal. Just look at the evidence discovered by investigators and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz with regard to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Application warrant submitted to the secret court by the FBI.
FBI special agent Kevin Clinesmith, along with others, omitted exculpatory information and inserted flat out lies in the Carter Page application, who was a short term volunteer.
The same apparent bureau corruption existed in the FBI’s investigation into former Trump national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn was strong armed into pleading guilty and has since dropped his plea. The DOJ is also asking for his case to be thrown out of court.
After nearly three years, it was discovered that there was absolutely no derogatory information on Flynn, or those he communicated with, or that he was conspiring with Russia. In fact, Flynn continued throughout to hold the highest level of security clearance and should have never been investigated.
It took roughly four years of investigations by Congress, the Department of Justice, the DOJ’s Inspector General and journalists to unearth mountains of evidence showing Obama’s senior FBI, State Department and Justice officials were complicit in what appeared to be an attempt to hijack the election and then remove President Trump from office.
Those investigating the FBI’s malfeasance have stated that senior members of the Obama administration should be investigated as well and it is uncertain if Durham will issue a report or indict people connected to the Trump probe before the November presidential election.
Jarrett may want us to forget what happened four years ago but that will never be the case.
Why? Because for the past four years our nation has been reeling from the corruption initiated by the Obama administration and those who were aware of it need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We can’t forget what happened. Our nation’s fundamental principals are at stake. If people aren’t held accountable our nation will fundamentally change forever and the corrupted bureaucrats will win.
Sorry Jarrett, we cannot afford a two-tiered justice system.
