Solomon: POTUS Trump will begin document declassification with ‘Bucket 5’ list of exculpatory evidence FBI failed to show FISA court (Video)

By Jon Dougherty

Ace investigative columnist John Solomon told Fox News‘ Sean Hannity Tuesday night during his show that, according to Solomon’s sources, POTUS Donald Trump is expected to begin declassifying a series of documents exposing President Obama’s deep state “Spygate” plot to undermine his presidency.

In particular, Solomon noted, the president will begin with with the release of “Bucket 5” documents, otherwise known as exculpatory statements the FBI possessed about its targets before agents went to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to get warrants to spy on them.

Meanwhile, investigative reporter Sara A. Carter added that Bucket 5 also includes transcripts and tapes of former Trump advisers George Papadopoulos and Carter Page saying that there was no way the 2016 campaign was working with Russians — information that Obama’s FBI and Justice Department did not share with the FISA court.

Solomon noted that the release could begin within a week to 10 days. He also added that “this is the first time that we know for sure the FBi was in possession of a piece of intelligence from Christopher Steele [author of the infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ used to get a warrant to spy on Page] that had been debunked before they went to the FISA court.”

He added that the FBI wasn’t in the process of verifying it — they had already debunked it.

Solomon went onto to note that he inquired with the FBI in October 2016 about a claim by some in the bureau, by Steele, and the Hillary Clinton campaign that a secret communication channel in Trump Tower in New York and an Alpha Bank (a Russian institution) email server in Moscow existed, and that Trump and Vladimir Putin used it to plot how to steal the 2016 election.

Everyone “in Clinton world was peddling” the claim, as was Steele to contacts in Obama’s State Department.

Solomon said the FBI completely debunked that claim the same month. However, “four days later, knowing that Christopher Steele was peddling it, they go to the FISA court and they represent Christopher Steele as credible, his information is accurate, they have no derogatory information about” any of what is contained in his dossier — though none of had been verified and all was later found to be bogus.

Also of note: Fired FBI Director James Comey signed off on one the first FISA warrant application, though the FBI had found Steele’s document not to be credible, and after DOJ official Bruce Ohr told him and other ranking members of the bureau that Steele was anti-Trump, that his work was being done on behalf of the Clinton campaign, and that it could not be trusted.

Comey then told President-elect Trump in January 2017 that the Steele dossier’s contents were not to be believed — after he signed off on the first FISA warrant.

As for the document declassification, both Hannity and Solomon said they had solid sources for the information.

“Yes, absolutely, I have confirmed that within the next seven to eight days, the president will declassify the first of many documents,” Solomon said. “This first one we used to call ‘Bucket 5,’ the exculpatory statements that the FBI possessed about its targets before it went to the FISA court.”

Also: Solomon noted that, for the first time, a survey by The Hill found that a majority of Americans support investigating the FBI’s conduct regarding the Spygate scandal.

“That is a sea change in public opinion,” Solomon noted.

    FACT: If Trump had anything against Mueller or anyone involved in the investigation against him, he would have released it months ago when he was freaking out on Twitter about it.

    • Really? Your “fact” has much to be desired.

      Since Trump is not the Police, and the Police have been shown to be corrupt, what would you have suggested? The media took the side of the criminals and brainwashed you and your friends. You have accepted their lies and incorporated it into your belief system and cannot stand being called terribly wrong, but you are.

      Lets see people really face justice now, not fabricated evidence, but real evidence and real crimes and then you can go to your safe space.

      It amazes me how hillary can take over 150 million dollars from the russians but you and your ilk insist on believing the lie that Trump is the criminal….. AMAZING.

      • In putting the Steele dossier together they used Russians and other foreign agents yet it’s referred to as “opposition research”.

      a thing that is indisputably the case

      a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge:

      yours is the latter…and typing a word in all caps doesn’t make it more convincing

    • Doesn’t really matter since it will be released. Sorry liberal you hero Dems had their chance to destroy the presidency and they blew it.
      FACT: Now theirs hell to pay.

  2. Trump was not in a position to release any information while Mueller was working on the investigation. He would have been accused of obstruction. I don’t blame Trump for freaking out on Twitter. He has been called a traitor for 2 years when he knew, and what was corroborated by the Mueller report was that there was no collusion between Trump and any Russians. Trump will not release information if it compromises the current investigation that are going on. The fact that he may be releasing information in the near future could be an indication that the present investigations are further along than we may believe, and indictments or exoneration’s may be just around the corner.

    So what? We already know and have for over two years what the illegal coup has done to illegally remove a duly elected president. The dossier, the only document upon which the FISA warrant was based, was proven fake two years ago. Mark Levin laid out the entire coup from start to finish and in great detail in March, 2017. All to what end? For two years, the GOP fell down, rolled over and soiled themselves making sure the committee hearings from 2017 to 2018 went nowhere. Trey Gowdy helped make sure with his ridiculous strutting and fretting, signifying of nothing. So, we’re never going to see Mueller, FISA judges, Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Obama, Hillary, Strzok, Lisa Page, Ohr, Steele, et al indicted, tried, convicted and jailed for their crimes; NEVER. We will only see four talk show hosts use the Bucket Five as grist to sell pillows, sheets, strawberries and home security systems while the feckless Republicans continue to fall down, roll over and soil themselves. Is anyone else getting tired of this outcome and national DO LOOP?

    • Fortunately I believe you are wrong on this one. If this were any other time and any other President you would be right and it would be business as usual. However, I happen to know people close Barr and they are saying that he is appalled at what happened and he IS going to make shit happen this time! It doesn’t help that the left was so bold and profusely corrupt in this matter…..ESPECIALLY at a time in history when literally everything is recorded and saved digitally. It doesn’t matter how they try to destroy evidence there is still PLENTY of saved it to paint the picture. Just wait and watch over the next two or three months what drops. You are going to see fireworks like you have never seen before! Satan fights like hell when he is cornered and he is VERY cornered right now.

        I certainly hope you’re correct but my turnip truck wounds healed in November, 1995 just after I shot my purple unicorn and those newly elected and brave Republicans began their “cave at any cost” leadership. There is history that I am correct regarding the Russia hoax coup, although again I hope you are. “Bull” Durham discovered Mueller committed several felonies, criminal felonies when he discovered four innocent men were illegally imprisoned over the Whitey Bolger case. Mueller knowingly committed the felonies to continue to imprison the four innocent men to protect himself and the FBI. What was Mueller’s punishment; what were the consequences of his crimes? Mueller was promoted, given raises, given greater credibility and eventually given carte blanche to conspire with the coup to remove a duly elected president, including the destruction of more innocent people in that process. It doesn’t matter whether Durham was not the one who ignored Mueller’s crimes in Whitey Bolger, his crimes were not just ignored, he was richly rewarded for committing them. So, until all of the coup is in prison for their crimes, I still say the only positive outcome for the nation is four guys making the big bucks from pillow sales by talking about it while the GOP struts and frets, and that is all.

  5. WTH is Huber doing in Utah for 18 months . he hasn’t called any big names before the grand jury or the media would blurt it out. I also fear Horowitz will equivocate telling us something akin to unfortunate mistakes were made, BUT…yadda-yadda. I trust very few people in our government. I hope , and pray, Barr proves me wrong ,and more importantly, will Durham
    prosecute to the maximum extent. America needs to see if justice is dispensed fairly.

  6. I agree with those who say something has changed. Things are going way faster than the last two years. To suppose that the climax of these events is going away, is foolish. We are talking about a huge crime and provable involvement of some high rollers who will prove powerless to stop what is coming.

  7. So many unprosecuted crimes have been committed by Democrats…the DNC computers that were totally infiltrated by the Awans with Little Debbie’s compliance, the Uranium One Deal, Hillary’s home-made computer system accessed by the Chinese and others as money poured into the Clinton Foundation, the Haiti ripoff by the Clintons and their pals, Hillary funding the fake dossier that was used to illegally secure warrants from the FISA Court, all the treasonous behaviors by top executives of the alphabet agencies, the spying operation headed by Barack Obama, the lying under oath, and on and on and on. Please, Trump, declassify everything that will bring all the greedy traitors to justice. Their evil is worldwide. God bless and protect Trump and America. And please, God, bring all the arrogant, lying, thieving, anti-American, elitist, leftist and RINO leaders, their supporters, and their fellow conspirators to justice. Please.

    • Amen. I am with you. The Democrats are freaking out so much, trying to get Trump’s financial records, not just his tax records. They are seeming to be pretty desperate. I pray that people who have been duped and lied to by mainstream media will wake up now. And I am hoping that no matter what justice gets done, not the little ones, but the big ones.

  8. From Wikipedia article on Five Eyes-
    In recent years, documents of the FVEY have shown that they are intentionally spying on one another’s citizens and sharing the collected information with each other in order to circumvent restrictive domestic regulations on spying.

    I don’t believe Trump ever intended to have meeting with Pelosi today. I believe he has figured it out. They are out to get him so why help them do it. Make them useless like they
    are. Don’t vote for anything they want as they have done to us. Pass nothing except
    judges you want and hopefully Amy is on the way.

    • I believe he was ready for the meeting. Nancy insulted him ON THE WAY TO THE MEETING! He did the right thing to throw them out…might have been better if he had done it physically! Suppose Trump had called Nancy a lying c–t while they were on the way to the White House. Would she have stayed for the meeting?

  11. There can be NO partial release of documents. Either all, or none. A partial release would just ” prove ” to the dems that he is hiding something.

Have something to say?
