Former Washington Times editor in Chief now a columnist for The Hill, John Solomon, reported another disturbing development regarding what’s dubbed SpyGate. He dropped his bombshell report Friday night on Fox News Channel’s Hannity Show. His report as added to the breaking stories that the Barack Obama administration, including Obama, were up to their eyeballs in spying on Trump’s presidential campaign. (See the accompanying news video.)
According to Solomon’s reporting, new government documents reveal that the Obama and other Deep State figures contacted Trump’s campaign officials while they were in Great Britain much prior to the launch of any legal FBI investigation. This spying on Trump campaign officials show the Comey FBI broke their own rules governing using confidential informants.
The FBI protocol for use of informants is clearly spelled out: “The courts have recognized that the government’s use of informants is lawful and often essential to the effectiveness of properly authorized law enforcement investigations. However, use of informants to assist in the investigation of criminal activity may involve an element of deception, intrusion into the privacy of individuals, or cooperation with persons whose reliability and motivation may be open to question. Although it is legally permissible for the FBI to use informants in its investigations, special care is taken to carefully evaluate and closely supervise their use so the rights of individuals under investigation are not infringed. The FBI can only use informants consistent with specific guidelines issued by the attorney general that control the use of informants.”
Former member of the FBI, Kevin Brock, agrees that law enforcement, intelligence and political office-holders have legitimate questions regarding the legality of the actions taken by people who began investigating Trump and his associates and continue to investigate him under the premise that the President colluded with the Russian government to beat Democrat Hillary Clinton for the White House..
A retired FBI assistant director for intelligence, Brock supervised the revision of the rules governing sources, while he worked under then-Director of the FBI Robert Mueller ten-years-ago. The revised rules forbid the FBI from directing a human source to target an American until a formally predicated investigative file is opened.
Another former FBI assistant director, Chris Swecker, confirmed Brock’s statements to the media when he appeared on Fox News Sunday. (See news video below.)
A report regarding the Obama-era FBI suggests dozens of agents want to have their day in court to expose government corruption, according to The Hill’s column by John Solomon on Friday night’s Hannity Show.
During Hannity’s program Friday, the conservative host also said he has learned that more than two dozen FBI agents want to be subpoenaed in order to testify about widespread abuses and political bias that occurred at the bureau during the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
“We have an [Inspector General] report coming out, and I’m told as many as 28 people that have knowledge of the Clinton email server scandal want to be subpoenaed so they can tell the story of corruption at the highest levels of the bureau at that they love,” Hannity said.
