As if we needed more proof that former FBI Director James Comey and his top leadership weaponized the FBI against Trump in 2016.
Again, the Sussmann trial has provided a key piece of information that proves Comey needs to be brought to justice.
Testimony during the Sussmann trial now points to FBI leadership for trying to push the link between Trump and Russia even though they knew it came from a Hillary operative.
Not an Option
If the testimony during the trial was truthful, it seems that agents were given an endpoint and then told to make it work.
In this case, they had a premise of a link between Trump and Russia, so just figure out how to make it stick.
Joe Pientka, the supervisory agent for “Crossfire Hurricane,” and FBI Special Agent Curtis Heide, revealed how excited FBI leadership was to prove the case against Trump.
In a message to Heide, Pientka stated, “People on the 7th floor to include Director are fired up about this server.
“Did you guys open a case? Reach out and put tools on?”
He added, “If not I will call Dan as Priestap says its not an option—we must do it.”
The “7th floor” is a reference to the powers that be in the FBI.
Comey, per former FBI General Counsel James Baker, was well aware the information had come from Michael Sussmann, who was working for the Clinton campaign at the time.
Now, I seem to remember Comey denying having his hands directly involved in the case while testifying under oath on the Hill, which would contradict his testimony, possibly putting Comey up for charges of also having lied under oath.
Deputy Director Andy McCabe was also aware that Sussmann was the source of the information, so he too could be looking at some possible charges here.
Baker had also testified that after “maybe a month and a half,” they knew there was nothing to the allegation, yet FISA warrants continued to be signed off on by FBI leadership.
If you question Comey’s guilt, just notice how quiet both he and McCabe have been throughout this trial when they have never had a problem making comments about the matter.
This is literally the weaponization of the FBI to take out a presidential candidate on false pretense, and Durham better make them all accountable for their actions.
