FISA Abuse Investigation Declassified: “the FBI under Comey and McCabe was either grossly incompetent”
The Judiciary Committee released classified materials from the FBI and the Department of Justice, among which were interviews with several agents, a report of a trumped-up investigation against Russia was declassified, as well as an aftermath of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation.
The Judiciary Committee press release says the FBI during the Obama era was highly biased and incompetent.
“I believe that Crossfire Hurricane was one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ,” U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) worte in the release. “The leadership of the FBI under Comey and McCabe was either grossly incompetent or they knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds. There was a blind eye turned toward any explanation other than the Trump campaign was colluding with foreign powers. At every turn the FBI and DOJ ran stop signs that were in abundance regarding exculpatory information.”
Among others, Chairman Graham released newly declassified FBI documents and communications demonstrating the Bureau's double standard when it came to the Clinton and Trump campaigns.
One of the most disturbing declassified documents was a memorandum of inquiry against the Obama administration, which instead of fighting terrorism in Sudan, happily sponsored the fighting.
“World Vision is a multinational charitable organization that regularly generates more than $1 billion in revenue annually, largely via donations from churches around the country, individual believers of their causes, and federal grants. World Vision utilizes most of these funds in an effort to assist those in need. As a result, World Vision’s work takes it to some of the most impoverished and oftentimes dangerous, war torn locations in the world. Some of these locations, such as Sudan, are very active hotspots for terrorist activity,” says the memorandum conclusion. “World Vision has a duty to ensure that funds acquired from the U.S. government or donated by Americans do not end up supporting terrorist activity. Particularly concerning to this Committee is World Vision’s attempt to shift the blame to the federal government for their own inability to properly vet a subcontractor. A more robust and fundamentally sound system of screening and vetting is needed to restore the public’s trust that contributions made to World Vision are not funding illicit organizations. Moreover, although we find no reason to doubt World Vision’s assertion that the funds in their entirety were used by ISRA for humanitarian purposes, that money inevitably aids their terrorist activities.”
