Since day one, Robert Mueller’s biggest ally has been deep state agents in the FBI.
If it weren’t for the FBI, his investigation almost certainly wouldn’t exist.
But now his blessing is about to become a curse, and the FBI and CIA are about to take him down for a crazy reason.
Mueller’s Special Counsel was formed after a series of shady moves from highly connected anti-Trump individuals.
All of it started with the anti-Trump Russia dossier compiled by former British Spy Christopher Steele.
Steele worked for Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS.
And Fusion GPS was operating with funds from both Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.
Political candidates paying for opposition research isn’t anything new.
But the Steele dossier had a much different route to creation and a very different and shady life after the election.
Despite having salacious claims about then-candidate Trump, they never were seen in public until after the election.
This is very unusual, but as time goes by, it becomes clear why.
While the public didn’t see it until after the election, the Justice Department had been using it for months.
Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department employee, is the husband to Nellie Ohr, who works for Fusion GPS.
And it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the first Justice Department employee to review the dossier was Ohr.
Eventually, after working its way through officials in the Justice Department, it was used to obtain a FISA surveillance warrant against Trump advisor Carter Page.
The FBI found nothing of value through their surveillance, but the FISA application itself is what was of value to the Justice Department.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein used it to justify forming Mueller’s special counsel.
So Mueller is essentially operating because of the unverified Steele dossier.
But now it is becoming even more clear just how bogus the dossier really is.
Steele is currently facing lawsuits in both the United States and the United Kingdom over claims made in the dossier, and now the FBI is casting serious doubt on the most serious allegation from the dossier.
Perhaps the most severe allegation in the dossier is that Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen visited Prague during the 2016 election to pay off Russian hackers for stealing emails from Democrats.
This is the biggest piece of evidence that Democrats and Mueller use to justify claims of Russia collusion.
But now, FBI and CIA sources say that they doubt the allegation, according to a top national security reporter at the Washington Post.
This is incredibly bad news for Robert Mueller and is surprising that it is coming from sources in the FBI.
If it weren’t for the FBI, the dossier would never be in the public’s eye, to begin with.
Shortly after the election, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed Trump on the dossier.
And in response, CNN and BuzzFeed used the meeting to justify releasing the dossier, which is unverified.
So it is extremely surprising that the FBI is now casting serious doubt on the dossier.
Do you think Trump should shut down Mueller’s investigation?
