(National Sentinel) Dirt: FBI counterintelligence chief Bill Priestap is going to Capitol Hill today to talk to lawmakers in a closed-door session.
Priestap ran the Hillary Clinton classified email fiasco and the “Spygate” surveillance operation into alleged “Russian collusion” with the Trump campaign.
He’s got all the details regarding both of these investigations. And he’s going to dish them to lawmakers, according to The Hill’s John Solomon.
“I think tomorrow is going to be a pivotal day. I think Congress is going to learn a lot of new information tomorrow during these interviews,” Solomon told Fox Business‘ Lou Dobbs on Monday.
“He is going to be speaking candidly about his employer, the FBI, and those who were running the agency during that period,” Dobbs responded.
“He was very high up. Had a bird’s-eye view of everything that went on in both of these investigations,” Solomon answered.

Notes Zero Hedge:
Priestap will be answering questions about the Hillary Clinton email case as well as the counterintelligence operation on the Trump campaign – both of which he oversaw. Priestap was the direct supervisor of Peter Strzok – the FBI agent whose anti-Trump / pro-Clinton bias was revealed after 50,000 text messages to his FBI-attorney mistress, Lisa Page, were discovered by the DOJ’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz.
All accounts say that Priestap is a cooperating witness. In other words, if there’s one person who can confirm that the FBI counterintelligence operation on the Trump campaign was politically motivated – or that malfeasance occurred during the process, it’s Bill Priestap.
The Conservative Treehouse had this to say about Priestap in February:
The game is over. The jig is up. Victory is certain… the trench was ignited… the enemy funneled themselves into the valley… all bait was taken… everything from here on out is simply mopping up the details. All suspicions confirmed.
Why has Devin Nunes been so confident? Why did all GOP HPSCI members happily allow the Democrats to create a 10-page narrative? All questions are answered.
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence member Chris Stewart appeared on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro, and didn’t want to “make news” or spill the beans, but the unstated, between-the-lines, discussion was as subtle as a brick through a window. Judge Jeannie has been on the cusp of this for a few weeks.
Listen carefully around 2:30, Judge Jeanine hits the bulls-eye; and listen to how Chris Stewart talks about not wanting to make news and is unsure what he can say on this…
Bill Priestap is cooperating.
When you understand how central E.W. “Bill” Priestap was to the entire 2016/2017 ‘Russian Conspiracy Operation‘, the absence of his name, amid all others, created a curiosity. I wrote a twitter thread about him last year and wrote about him extensively, because it seemed unfathomable his name has not been a part of any of the recent story-lines.
The rest is here.
Grab some popcorn.
