Former FBI Asst Dir Kallstrom says the actions of Clinton seem to defy the FISA process. Maybe the agents had horrible judgment, maybe there was another force in play…
Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom responds to a question of what he makes of the revelations that the crooked Clintons financed the phony Russia dossier and the fact that the Clintons paid for it.
He says, “No surprise there, but you know this whole story gets murkier, dirtier, filthier, the swamp gets deeper and the animals in there are uglier. I mean this is just unbelievable.”
Kallstrom says, “You know this whole thing, Democrats, the cabal that was put together, the conspiracy, in my view, that was conducted to basically stop the President-elect from being effective and really taking over his office and implementing his programs.”
“And at the very beginning, apparently, there was the FISA order.” He points out that, “That was sort of the basis for the initial information about General Flynn and all of these other things. I’ve been through many, many processes, getting applications before the FISA Court and I know what the affidavits look like.”
He says, “They’re thick and they’re full of information. They get such review at multiple levels, you know, you just can’t slap together a bunch of hearsay and put it together in an affidavit and bring it before a FISA judge. And I’m sure in this case the FISA judge did nothing out of the ordinary.”
Kallstrom says, “The question is what is in that affidavit? You know, if that affidavit is the basis is that salacious crap that was put together by that GPS firm, and if that’s the probable cause or the nuggets of probable cause, that’s something the intelligence community has to get a look at in my view.”
They have to look at that application and see what’s in there.” If that’s what’s in there,” says Kallstrom, “and the agents that signed those affidavits believed that information, that’s one thing. I would say their judgment’s really bad. But if they didn’t, then this is really, really a scandal that’s at the very heart of how we use our laws to go after the real bad guys in the world.
He’s asked if this could have led to the FISA warrants to do surveillance on Trump Tower and “the NSA requests to do unmasking of Trump and his teammates.” He agrees it needs to be looked at. And Kallstrom notes it went beyond the Democrats and Hillary Clinton, with John McCain sticking his nose into it as well.
He said, “You’ve got Senator McCain causing a show, sending someone over to Britain to get this document and hand it to the FBI. You’ve got the Director of the CIA talking about how he based his whole strategy on further investigations on this document.”
Kallstrom continues, saying, “You’ve got Congressman Schiff [Shifty the Bobble-head] reading parts of this salacious information into the Congressional record day after day and you’ve got the FBI Director going and supposedly briefing the Director.”
He says, “I think this whole thing is part of a cabal that is extremely embarrassing, extremely not in keeping with the United States of America…[talked over by host and unintelligible]. Kallstrom remarks, “We haven’t even talked about the unmaskings. That’s outrageous, you know the fact that General Flynn’s name was turned right over to the New York Times. You know that was the first huge embarrassment of how this was violated.” He asks, “What’s this, the Ambassador to the United Nations did 250 unmaskings and now she claims that none of them were done or she had no knowledge of it?”
Kallstrom says, “This is really a scandal and I hope people over in the Justice Department have come in from the long winter’s night, you know, they seem to be on a long sabbatical over there. I hope that’s not the case.
When the host notes that Sen Feinstein now finally admits that “there’s no evidence along with intelligence officials of Trump and Russia collusion” Kallstrom responds, “Of course not, never has been.”
