All of the minute twists and turns in the soap opera known as Swamp Politics have produced yet another plot complication. According to reporter Sara Carter, and others, one specific name has been redacted from released communications between members of the FBI who conspired to keep Donald Trump from making America great again both before and after the 2016 election. That person’s name is the reason used that the Department of Justice is not handing information to Congress when they ask for it.
Why this is the case is officially a matter of speculation, but there are a number of clues as to what the real truth might be.
When Carter said the word “spy” associated with the Trump campaign, Hannity stopped her and asked incredulously, “What??” after which she again cited Strassel’s report.
Carter appeared to suggest that the withheld documents may be connected to the “spy,” if one existed. Her article stated that the congressmen were seeking “information on an unnamed individual considered by the DOJ and FBI to be a very valuable source in their counterintelligence operation.”…
In her article Thursday, Carter reported that a DOJ letter responding to Nunes’s request to see the classified information said that allowing him and other members of Congress to view it could “risk severe consequences, including the potential loss of human lives, damage to relationships with valued international partners, compromise of ongoing criminal investigations, and interference with intelligence activities.”
Whoever the individual in question is, the revelation of his or her name is going to open a can of uncontrollable worms. That’s the sort of thing that happens when actual intelligence operators are unmasked.
Whatever is going on in Washington is some sort of deep long game. Congress is trying to get answers for the people, and the Department of Justice is trying to get answers for prosecution.
Let’s hope they don’t step on each other’s toes trying to get it all done.
