Attorney General William Barr is taking the deep state head on.
They are terrified by a series of investigations he is leading.
And now he is about to end the deep state after a smoking gun was revealed.
The Barr-authorized investigation into potential FISA abuses during the 2016 election is expected to be released any day now.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is on the case and is looking into the details relating to a series of FISA surveillance warrants authorized against Trump campaign officials.
In particular, he is looking into the case of Carter Page, a low-level Trump campaign advisor who was spied on during the 2016 campaign.
His surveillance warrant was signed off on by the FBI using information compiled by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm with ties to the Democrat Party.
The firm was operating using funding from Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee and had questionable ties to the Obama Justice Department through an employee who was married to a DOJ employee.
And on top of all of this, the man leading the investigation was a former British spy named Christopher Steele.
Steele eventually released the now-infamous Trump-Russia dossier which made a number of false claims against then-candidate Trump.
Information in that dossier was the main piece of evidence the FBI used to justify the FISA warrants.
But, as it turns out, Steele himself may not have been the most reputable individual.
Months ago, former Rep. Trey Gowdy hinted at this, stating that investigators should look into emails between former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan about the credibility of Steele.
But new information makes that unnecessary.
As it turns out, the FBI went to M16, which is the British spy agency Steele worked for and asked for their opinion on him in 2016.
In response, while they do call him persistent, they cast serious doubt on his credibility.
According to the New York Times, the spy agency said that Steele “sometimes showed questionable judgment in pursuing targets that others viewed as a waste of time.”
This assessment doesn’t inspire much confidence, especially with how big of a difference Steele’s dossier has made.
Not only did the FBI use Steele’s information to obtain surveillance warrants against Trump campaign officials, but it was also used as the primary piece of evidence to form Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.
When then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein formed Mueller’s special counsel, he used the surveillance warrants themselves, not any information acquired through the spying, to form the investigation.
While Mueller’s investigation ultimately turned up nothing, it did cause a lot of headaches for President Trump.
For two years, that investigation was sitting in the background, making anything he wanted to do virtually impossible.
It was ultimately an attempt to overthrow an elected government official.
And as it turns out, the man behind it doesn’t even have the confidence of his former employer.
