Lindsey Graham Might Have Answered the Biggest Question in the Dossier Case

Byron York confirmed that Congress has seen the Trump-Russia secret court surveillance documents (FISA). Through the process of deduction, the Sentinel believes Lindsey Graham has seen them and could be suggesting the answer as to the role the dossier played in launching the investigation.

According to Byron York:

Sources on both Capitol Hill and in the executive branch have confirmed that representatives of four committees — the House Intelligence Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee, House Judiciary Committee, and Senate Judiciary Committee — have had the opportunity to examine FISA documents in a secure room at the Justice Department. They were not allowed to take the documents out of the room or to copy them, but they could make notes. They thus know the answer to the was-the-dossier-used-for-spying question.

We don’t know when the committees reviewed these documents, but Lindsey Graham sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee. His tweets over the last few hours are interesting in light of this.

Since December 30th, Lindsey Graham has said there is something “untoward” about the dossier and he has called for a special counsel to investigate since Mueller’s team is not investigating the dossier.

The senator from South Carolina has said: “I’ve been a lawyer most of my life, a prosecutor, and a defense attorney, and the one thing I can say, every prosecutor has a duty to the court to disclose things that are relevant to the request. So any time a document is used to go to court, for legal reasons, I think the Department of Justice owes it to the court to be up-and-up about exactly what this document is about, who paid for it, who’s involved, what their motives might be. And I can just say this: After having looked at the history of the dossier, and how it was used by the Department of Justice, I’m really very concerned, and this cannot be the new normal.

Lindsey Graham has become an ally of Trump’s. Graham, it seems, must know how the dossier was handled and yet he is his new friend. Would he if the dossier and the FISA weren’t intimately tied?

One interesting fact is that the Senate Intel Committee is accusing Christopher Steele of lying about the dissemination of the dossier. Also interesting is the fact that in the recently released testimony of Glenn Simpson, he would not rule out if part of his arrangements when contracting for opposition research is an agreement to launch investigations.

    • I wonder. It’s odd. If Trump is closer to annihilation, why would Lindsey suddenly start defending him? He knows the story of the dossier.

  1. This is from The Last Refuge Site……………

    There’s a pretty clear picture here.

    Obama’s political operatives within the DOJ-NSD were using FISA 702(17) surveillance “about inquiries” that would deliver electronic mail and phone communication for U.S. people (Trump campaign). The NSD unit (John Carlin) was working in coordination with the FBI Counterintelligence Unit (Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok etc.). DOJ Attorney Lisa Page was the intermediary between the DOJ National Security Division and he FBI Counterintelligence Division.

    In an effort to stop the FISA 702(17) activity NSA Director Mike Rogers initiated a full 702 compliance review. However, before the review was complete the DOJ-NSD had enough information for their unlawful FISA warrant which worked retroactively to make the prior FBI surveillance (began in July ’16 per James Comey) lawful. Mike Rogers stopped the FISA702(17) process on October 26th 2016. As a result of his activity, Rogers became a risk; DNI James Clapper demanded he be fired.

    ♦Ten days after the presidential election, November 17th 2016, Admiral Rogers travels to Trump Tower without telling ODNI James Clapper. Rogers likely informs President-elect Trump of the prior activity by the FBI and DOJ, including the probability that all of Trump Tower’s email and phone communication was being collected.

    ♦ On November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers went to see President-Elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower, New York. –SEE HERE– Director Rogers never told his boss DNI, James Clapper.

    ♦ On November 18th, 2016, the Trump Transition Team announced they were moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. ……………..interesting stuff, if Rodgers tipped off Trump about Wiretapping
