In 2014, the FBI thought that foreign countries could interfere with the 2016 presidential election. James Comey had to answer a lot of questions. What happened to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant? Guess what… The Bureau slow-walked the request.

We do not have any info on the ”foreign power,” but we do know that Hillary Clinton wanted to become the first female president of this country. Former President Donald Trump declassified the redacted documents on his way out.

The Bureau worked really hard to connect Trump to Russia. According to the documents, the FISA warrant was never approved or denied.

The documents were declassified a day before Joe Biden’s inauguration. They show that the Bureau did not try really hard to get the warrant. They put Comey in the center of all events.

“The FISA application has remained in limbo for the last four months, even though subsequent investigative activity by [redacted] provided additional probable cause for the FISA application,” an FBI employee said in an email to Comey dated April 14, 2015.

According to the email, investigators had, “identified attempts by the [redacted government] to influence the U.S. presidential election, U.S. presidential candidates, and U.S. politicians through illegal campaign contributions.”

The office conducting the “thorough” investigation was “still uncertain as to why the application has not been sent to DOJ for final approval although several reasons have been put forth by CD [Criminal Division], most recently that the decision to put the application on hold originated ‘on the seventh floor.’”

The investigation was “superficially connected to political candidates … it does not target the candidate(s), and there is no evidence the candidate is even aware of the potential targeting.”

“Don’t know anything about this but will get smarter,” Comey said in a reply.

A month before this happened, an FBI official emphasized the importance of rapid action.

“[The Wall Street Journal] is reporting that Hillary Clinton plans to formally announce her 2016 Presidential candidacy in April 2015,” the March 2, 2015, email read.

“To me, this underscores the need for us to push this FISA. By the time we get it signed and go up, we would only be up a few weeks before she announces, at best. On the other hand, if we wait for the events to unfold which we discussed on the [teleconference], her announcement may occur in advance of us getting the FISA coverage. That puts us even further behind the curve on the intel necessary for this operation.”

Hillary’s legal team received a defensive briefing in October of 2015.

Lawyers David Kendall and Katherine Turner “were advised the FBI was providing them with this briefing for awareness and so Ms. Clinton could take appropriate action to protect herself,” a summary memo read. “They were also told the FBI was seeking their assistance to identify other appropriate recipients of the brief, if any.”

“Kendall and Turner were asked to advise the FBI, Section Chief [David] Archey, if Ms. Clinton is approached by anyone connected to or acting at the direction of the [redacted government].”

Here’s what The Washington Post reported:

In April 2016, low-level Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was told by a contact with Russian connections that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton involving emails. A month later, he passed this on to an Australian diplomat, who passed it on to American authorities after the Democratic National Committee emails were dumped onto WikiLeaks in June.

In July, another low-level adviser, Carter Page, gave a speech at a university in Moscow. Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who was putting together a dossier on Trump for a firm paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, said Page had met with high-level Russian officials while he was there. This dossier, to the extent that it hasn’t been discredited, remains unproven.

At no point was a defensive briefing given to the Trump campaign, either about Papadopoulos or Page.

Instead, the Steele dossier — essentially opposition research by the Clinton campaign — was used to obtain a FISA warrant against Page.
