Executive Intelligence Review

FROM EIR DAILY ALERT


Storm Clouds on Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Horizon

Oct. 4, 2018 (EIRNS)—On Oct. 3rd, the joint House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees investigating the Department of Justice Russiagate insurrection against Donald Trump took testimony behind closed doors from former FBI General Counsel James Baker, a confidant of fired FBI Director James Comey. According to widespread leaks today, Baker’s testimony included the fact that he, Baker, met directly with the Perkins Coie firm, the lawyers for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and then-candidate Hillary Clinton, directly receiving materials which went into the FBI’s FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant against Trump associate Carter Page.

Baker characterized this process has “highly abnormal.” The Perkins Coie lawyer involved, Michael Sussman, is also the man who orchestrated the fake information-warfare story that the Russians hacked the DNC computer on behalf of Donald Trump. Coming out of the testimony, one of the sources for the story spoke plainly: Baker’s testimony shows that the entire Russiagate investigation was a ginned up operations research/information warfare campaign involving the FBI and Hillary’s Clinton’s campaign, rather than any “conspiracy” involving the “Trump campaign and Russia.”

Today, Oct. 4, is the deadline for former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s memos to be delivered to Congress, regarding meetings occurring in the wake of James Comey’s firing in May 2017, in which Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others discussed wearing wires and recording President Donald Trump, and also invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. In a discussion with Hill.TV on Oct. 3, Congressman Mark Meadows, who is leading this investigation, said that he has seen evidence that “confidential human sources” used by the FBI “actually taped members within the Trump campaign.... There is strong suggestions in that, with some of the text messages, emails, and so forth who was involved, that extraordinary measures were used to surveil,” Meadows said, reported Hill.TV.

There is now a major national outcry for the President to declassify all of the relevant documents concerning Russiagate. Speculation on his failure, thus far, to do so, centers on both the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight and forcing his hand on Rod Rosenstein (with whom he will reportedly soon meet) before the midterm elections.
