(National Sentinel) Deep State: The corrupt FBI and Justice Department personnel who launched “Crossfire Hurricane” — the juvenile code name for “Spygate” in which the Deep State put a rival presidential campaign under surveillance, may be one step closer to a jail cell today.
On Saturday Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton announced that the DoJ was finally responding to a Freedom of Information Act request to hand over documents related to warrants on Trump campaign figure Carter Page obtained from the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court.
It took a year for Judicial Watch to receive those documents.
And though the arrived heavily redacted, there is are already a few bombshells that can be gleaned from them.
For one, anti-Trump FBI thug Peter Strzok may have perjured himself in his recent testimony before a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees when he claimed he had nothing to do with obtaining those FISA warrants against Page.
It should be noted that Obama’s DoJ and FBI obtained a FISA warrant to spy on Page in October 2016 — who, of course, was interacting with all campaign officials including candidate Donald Trump at the time.
This was after the Deep State attempted to obtain warrants against Trump campaign figures — Page? — in July 2016, but were rejected by the FISA court.
After getting the initial warrant, it was renewed three times after POTUS Trump took office. James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications despite the fact that the fake “Russia dossier” bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign was used as a pretext for those warrants.
Fitton said late Saturday that despite the redactions, it’s clear that the DoJ and FBI misled the FISA court, primarily by withholding the fact that the dossier was a political opposition document, not actual counterintelligence.
But there’s more: The released documents make clear that Strzok did indeed provide info that was utilized to secure FISA warrants against Page.
During his contentious hearing, however, Strzok swore he provided no substantive input on the application—he didn’t supply any evidence for it and was not involved in presenting it to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval, according to these sources, noted The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff.
Investigative journalist Paul Sperry tweeted out the breaking news.
“BREAKING: Newly released FISA application shows Strzok did in fact use Carter Page’s Sept. 2016 letter to Comey as a “pretext” to open investigation on him, as Strzok suggested in email to Page in Sept re “Crossfire FISA.” Yet Strzok just swore he had nothing to do with Page FISA,” he wrote.

GOP lawmakers have been attempting to learn Strzok’s role in the FISA warrant applications for more than a year.
It now appears they have their answer. And really, it makes sense, given that, at the time, Peter Strzok was the FBI’s No. 2 counterintel official.
As more documents are released and more Obama Deep State thugs are outed, it becomes more and more apparent that none of them expected POTUS Trump to win.
