The FBI’s spygate scandal continues to take a turn for the worse.

An FBI spy attempted to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

Now a bombshell email offers smoking gun evidence that the FBI’s covert operation was even worse than anyone thought.

The FBI claims they opened operation “Crossfire Hurricane” – the codename given to the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign – on July 31st, 2016.

This supposedly occurred after the FBI was informed that Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos blabbed to an Australian diplomat that a Maltese professor named Joseph Mifsud informed him the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

But this story is beginning to look like a cover up for the real truth.

The ugly truth is that the FBI began spying on the Trump campaign far earlier than they claimed, and their spy contacted even more Trump campaign officials than previously thought.

J.D. Gordon – the director of the Trump campaign’s national security committee and who is also a veteran – told the Daily Caller that top Trump aide Stephen Miller had also been invited to the same Cambridge event as Carter Page back in May 2016 by the FBI spy.

Miller could not attend the July event, but Page did and described having an uneventful conversation with Stephan Halper, the FBI spy.

The Daily Caller reports: “J. D. Gordon, the director of the campaign’s national security advisory committee, told TheDCNF he believes the invitation from Cambridge to Miller was sent in May 2016. That’s a month before a graduate assistant of FBI informant Stefan Halper sent an invitation to Page to visit the campus.

“The invitation was to Stephen Miller who could not attend,” Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman, told TheDCNF. “In the midst of our policy office search for a surrogate, Carter Page informed me that he had also been invited and would like to attend.”

This is a troubling development.

It was initially believed Page was targeted because in 2013, Russians agents were caught on a wiretap discussing recruiting Page.

But what gets left out of that story was that the Russian agents never moved forward and Page worked with the FBI to help catch the Russian spies.

The email to Miller indicates the spy wasn’t necessarily targeting Page.

What the FBI was looking for was a point of entry into the Trump campaign.

The spy turned to Page when his approach to Miller failed.

 

This presents the FBI’s conduct in an entirely new light.

The investigation was not a grand spy hunt to capture Russian agents.

Bureau officials – most likely colluding with the Obama White House – launched a politically motivated fishing expedition into the Trump campaign to see what they could turn up.

Operation Crossfire Hurricane did not begin on July 31st.

The FBI began digging into the Trump campaign months earlier.

President Trump sent out a series of tweets relaying the contents of an interview with Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.

Trump quoted Farrell as stating that the active measures against Trump actually began in December 2015.

Chris Farrell, Judicial Watch. “They were running an operation to undermine a candidate for President of the U.S. These are all violations of law. This is intelligence tradecraft to steer an election. There’s nothing more grave when it comes to abuse of our intelligence system...

...This is a level of criminality beyond the pale. This is such a grave abuse of power and authority, it’s like nothing else we’ve seen in our history. This makes the Nixon Watergate burglary look like keystone cop stuff

 

The FBI’s scheme to run covert operations to spy on Donald Trump and to sabotage his campaign is the real scandal.

That is what should be investigated. This nonsense about collusion with Russia is fake news and the investigation needs to be shut down immediately.
