Things are getting deep in the investigation into the corruption that surrounds the FISA applications that were acquired into what is now obviously an illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Since the release of the IG report, it has become quite clear that there are many under the Obama administration who lied and covered up the wrongdoings that were done in order to spy on Donald Trump.
Now we have confirmation that former Attorney General under Obama, Loretta Lynch lied under oath, thereby committed perjury. And just to think that she was once trying to throw everyone else under the bus so she could get looked over when it came down to learning of her involvement.
Lynch claimed that she was never briefed on the investigation into Donald Trump. However, this directly contradicts the evidence both in the IG report and from the FBI. So either James Comey was lying or Loretta Lynch was lying.
The IG report says,
Office of the Attorney General Loretta Lynch was sworn in as Attorney General on April 27, 2015. Lynch told the OIG that she did not recall receiving a briefing on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Lynch's National Security Counselor told us that she did not receive any briefing on the case and did not know if Lynch received a briefing.
Lynch also said that she didn’t “she did not recall providing any guidance or direction to the FBI on the investigation, or having any awareness of the Carter Page FISA applications before she left the Department on January 20, 2017.”
But we know that this is a lie. Because the AG must sign off on every single FISA application and make sure that the facts have been verified.
So she would have had to sign off on the Carter Page FISA applications.
According to ABC News:
More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.
According to ABC, all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch. This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race. This is disheartening knowing that she released a video over the weekend calling for the need for more marching, blood and death on the streets. This also means that she chose not to investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal activities but rather signed an application to wire tap President Trump.
