The noose is tightening ever so slowly around the necks of senior State Obama officials, as more damning information is coming to light thanks to conservative watchdog organizations Judicial Watch and Daily Caller.
The just-released 16-pages revealed that Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer coordinated with incoming House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) national security advisor, Daniel Silverberg, to work on the phony information provided by British spy Christopher Steele’s discredited Russian dossier.
Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch just received classified documents in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed last year, on behalf of Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation against the State Department — which had stonewalled and failed to respond to three separate FOIA requests for the documents.
However on the third attempt “Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State,” the little guys finally won, forcing the State Department to release in a timely manner all the documents pertaining to the lawsuit including:
“All records of communications between State Department officials, including former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, on the one hand, and British National Christopher Steele and/or employees or contractors of Steele’s company, Orbis Business Intelligence, on the other hand.”
“All records and/or memoranda provided by Christopher Steele and/or his firm Orbis Business Intelligence or by others acting on Steele’s/Orbis’s behalf, to State Department officials.”
“Any and all records in the custody of the State Department related to the provision of documents to British national Christopher Steele and/or his firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, or the receipt of documents from Steele or his firm. Time period is January 20, 2009, through the present.”
“All records created in 2016 by Jonathan M. Winer relating to research compiled by Christopher Steele.”
Winer in 2018 also wrote an op-ed article claiming that he was approached by Christopher Steele, and Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal with two different dossiers, writing: “In the summer of 2016, Steele told me that he had learned of disturbing information regarding possible ties between Donald Trump, his campaign and senior Russian officials.” Also, “While talking about that hacking, Blumenthal and I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist I did not know …”
Editor in chief Christopher Bedford, of The Daily Caller News Foundation, had this to say about the just released documents, “Every day of digging reveals more and more political collaboration on this hit job, and at the highest levels. While so much of the media is content to chase Russian conspiracies, The Daily Caller News Foundation and the fantastic lawyers at Judicial Watch are going to keep doing the hard work of holding power accountable.”
In another legal showdown with the State Department, Judicial Watch was successful in obtaining and releasing to the public 43-pages of documents revealing that it’s “Special Coordinator for Libya,” Jonathan Winer, played a key role in dispensing Steele’s phony dossier to other top government officials and prominent international business executives, for the sole purpose of smearing the President. Winer was even approached by a movie producer about making a movie about the “Russia-gate” targeting of President Trump.
The “soft coup” by the Obama Administration began immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Documents previously released by Judicial Watch revealed that heavily redacted State Department documents showing classified information was given to Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).
Thus far the “smoking gun” showing that Obama “personally” orchestrated the “soft coup” has yet to be found. However, Judicial Watch has a number of lawsuits pending in the courts against the State Department, employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department, officials…stay tuned.
Do you believe that the continued pursuit by Judicial Watch will eventually lead to implicating former President Obama? (Tell us below)
