The phrase “more than meets the eye” carries a lot more meaning when it’s applied to politics in general, as well as the recent presidential election in particular.
Apparently, FBI Director James Comey had a much larger role during the Obama administration than what America originally thought. We all questioned Comey’s formality of investigating Hillary Clinton for her alleged mishandling of classified emails, just to be found negligent but not culpable. So how deep state is Comey?
Director Comey and his assistant, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, are under investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee for allegedly heading up the unethical investigation into Donald Trump during the election cycle. How? By enlisting a member of a foreign spy service, British agent Christopher Steele, to do their dirty work.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding the story behind the FBI’s reported plan to pay the author of a lurid and unsubstantiated dossier on candidate Donald Trump. In particular, Grassley appears to be zeroing in on the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, indicating Senate investigators want to learn more about McCabe’s role in a key aspect of the Trump-Russia affair.
Grassley began his investigation after the Washington Post reported on February 28 that the FBI, “a few weeks before the election,” agreed to pay former British spy Christopher Steele to investigate Trump. Prior to that, supporters of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign had paid Steele to gather intelligence on Clinton’s Republican rival. In the end, the FBI did not pay Steele, the Post reported, after the dossier “became the subject of news stories, congressional inquiries and presidential denials.” It is not clear whether Steele worked under agreement with the FBI for any period of time before the payment deal fell through.
“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” Grassley wrote in a letter to Comey dated March 28.

In the letter Sen. Grassley makes reference to a nearly $700,000 donation to the political campaign of McCabe’s wife by close Clinton associates raising the issue of a conflict interest:
Mr. McCabe’s appearance of a partisan conflict of interest relating to Clinton associates only magnifies the importance of those questions. That is particularly true if Mr. McCabe was involved in approving or establishing the FBI’s reported arrangement with Mr. Steele, or if Mr. McCabe vouched for or otherwise relied on the politically-funded dossier in the course of the investigation. Simply put, the American people should know if the FBI’s second-in-command relied on Democrat-funded opposition research to justify an investigation of the Republican presidential campaign.
It appears that former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey, and his assistant Andrew McCabe were working with a British spy to create a false dossier on Trump to ruin him if he should manage to get elected.
They say the Devil is in the details and we shouldn’t be too surprised if and when we get to the bottom of this rabbit hole that the Devil is what we find!
