Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch (JW) says that documents JW received from a FOIA request shows that the State Department tried to undercut President Trump in the final days of the Obama administration. It shows that in the final days the State Department was rushing to accumulate and distribute raw intelligence to anti-Trump Senators Mark Warner, Ben cardin and RINO Bob Corker. We now know that most of that information came from the bogus dossier funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. This was just one more step in the attempted coup against this president.
Judicial Watch has made public 90 pages of heavily redacted U.S. Department of State documents showing Obama State Department officials’ efforts to disseminate classified information to multiple U.S. Senators immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The information, which included raw intelligence, purported to show “malign” Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Among the senators receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).
We obtained the documents through our June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).
A January 13, 2017, email from Hera Abbasi, a former congressional advisor in the State Department’s Bureau of Legislative Affairs, suggests that the intelligence community was providing “raw intel” to Sen. Warner. Such an exchange almost certainly would have been coordinated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI): “Yes, that is correct. Warner/raw intel stuff is going thru IC channels.” (Abbasi previously worked in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and was a 2017 Next Generation National Security Fellow at the liberal Center for a New American Security. Abbasi donated $725 to the Clinton campaign and Act Blue during the 2016 election cycle.)
We need to really clean up the Deep State and send as many of the co-conspirators in the FBI and the DOJ to Club Fed located at Ft Leavenworth Prison. If we don’t this will happen every time a Republican is elected president. We cannot afford to put the country through that again. As much as President Trump has accomplished, think how much he could have accomplished without the corruption of the DOJ and FBI..
