For years, Americans have had to put up with the media accusing Trump of “colluding” with Russia. Even after he was cleared, the rumors still hang around like a shadow. But a real conspiracy was going on in 2016—one that involved Obama and his DOJ. Now, we are learning that Attorney General Barr’s top investigator is hot on the trail.
It’s no secret that Russia was up to something in 2016. The sad reality is, thanks to the partisan left, we don’t know for sure all that they tried to do. Democrats claimed Russia was working with Trump to steal the election.
That was a bald-face lie. Even Robert Mueller cleared Trump’s name, saying not a single American worked with Russia.
But Russia did try to interfere with our election. We know that a group of twelve Russian figures infiltrated social media, to spread false information about all the candidates (even going back to the primaries, attacking and helping Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz). Was Russia doing other things? How far was their reach into American politics?
Unfortunately, the Obama administration might not have been doing a good enough job of finding out. We do know that Obama’s DOJ ignored real threats and spent much of its time trying to take down Trump’s campaign. They used a false dossier to get warrants to spy on a Trump staffer. But what about Russia?
Now we are learning that Obama’s administration did know about Russian interference. In fact, the CIA in particular was aware of actions by the foreign power to mess with our democracy. But the agency may have hid the details from other agencies—letting Russia get away with it.
A.G. Barr is none too pleased. And he’s sending his bulldog after the facts.
U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly investigating if Obama administration officials hid or manipulated evidence about what they knew about Russia’s election interference in the 2016 U.S. elections…
“Mr. Durham appears to be pursuing a theory that the C.I.A., under its former director John O. Brennan, had a preconceived notion about Russia or was trying to get to a particular result — and was nefariously trying to keep other agencies from seeing the full picture lest they interfere with that goal.”
Buried deep in the report, the Times revealed that officials had fought over access to emails that the Russian government had previously hacked, which included emails from former President Barack Obama…

Wow, talk about a bombshell. We do know that Russia was on an email-hacking spree back in 2016. But we had no idea that they got their hands on emails from the president and Congress!
Shouldn’t be too big of a surprise. Hillary’s illegal private server had been hacked many times. She was probably communicating with many leaders, including the president. If Russia targeted her server, then they could have gotten a hold of emails (and documents) from many people.
Yet the CIA and FBI tried to cover all this up. One, so they wouldn’t look bad in the press. And the other, so the Russia’s schemes could actually come to fruition. Reports suggest that John Brennan, the former head of the CIA, may have hid or changes documents in order to keep Russia’s antics in the dark.
Perhaps Brennan knew what Russia was up to and wanted them to continue. Why? Because he might have wanted to use what he learned to take down Trump. Or perhaps he wanted the FBI to look bad.
Either case, this opens up a big can of worms for the Obama administration. All kinds of shady things were going on. And the top investigator is hot on the trail.
Hopefully, the full scope of their crimes will come to light soon.
