Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell says the IG report on FBI malfeasance in the sham Clinton Probe shows Obama was running the covert operation from the White House…
In welcoming Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch to his program, Lou Dobbs makes what may be his most understated observation of the year, that President Trump “has been very constrained with this Justice Department and FBI,” asking for his opinion on the President’s comments as to whether or not Comey should be locked up. Of course there’s no reason to stop with Comey or to exclude present DOJ and FBI leadership.
Trump doesn’t want to tie his own hands by calling for Comey to be locked up, but certainly he’s labeling him a criminal, which the content of the IG report reinforces. Farrell notes that the report itself contains useful information as to the nature of some of the improprieties, illegalities and potential illegalities that occurred. He says, “It’s weak, it loses its horsepower when it comes to recommendations. It’s a standard IG cover up document from that perspective, it’s not hard-hitting.”
Dobbs interrupts to give credit to Farrell as the only one of his many guests who correctly predicted the watered-down product that would be the result of this process, noting his earlier statements that “the Inspector General’s office is where truth goes to die.” Farrell describes IGs as being universally, “departments of cover ups, that’s what they do.”
Farrell references “Incredible commentary from Lisa Page asserting that everything that they were doing was being coordinated or is being briefed to the ‘president,’ meaning Mr. Obama. So this reaches back into the Obama White House, without any doubt or any sort of waffling. The Obama White House owns this, this is their activity. These crooked, dirty FBI agents and attorneys were coordinating their operations with the Obama White House.”
Farrell also notes what he calls a “startling admission by the character who is named as attorney number 2, where he says that there are legal documents with his name all over it…investigating President Trump’s staff” written the day after the election.
Farrell says, “This is a stop the presses moment. We’ve got the ‘president’ of the United States, Obama, wrapped up in this investigation, according to Lisa Page, and you have an FBI attorney talking about how he was investigating the president’s staff the day after the election.”
