Judge Jeanine: Loretta Lynch Must Have Played Role in FBI Spying On Trump
Despite having mockingly dismissed such claims for the past year, the liberal media recently admitted — based on anonymous FBI leaks — that the investigatory bureau had indeed spied upon then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Judge Jeanine Pirro absolutely exploded at that news during the “Opening Statement” segment of her program Saturday evening, and pointed an accusatory finger directly at the ultimate overseer of the Obama administration’s FBI — former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
It was recently reported by The New York Times and The Washington Post that the FBI had used an “informant” to subversively question fringe associates of the Trump campaign with regard to possible campaign connections with Russia. That information likely served as part of the foundation for the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.
Based on her own experience and information from her own sources, Pirro said such a move would had to have been authorized at the highest levels of law enforcement, by no less than Lynch herself.
“I want you to remember that you heard it here first,” Pirro said. “Any ‘collector’ — their name for an informant working on a national campaign — must have a sign off by the Attorney General.
“Here, that would be liar Loretta Lynch. Lynch, herself, would’ve had to have approved of an informant on that campaign. And if she didn’t, then the FBI under James Comey was even more corrupt, going rogue in their attempt to destroy Donald Trump.”
This is a great point by the former judge which almost certainly suggests the increasingly obvious fact that Trump’s campaign was spied on with the knowledge of — and quite probably directed by — the highest levels of the Obama administration, perhaps even the former occupant of the White House himself.
Earlier in her rant, Pirro took great issue with the use of a government “mole” to spy on the political opposition’s campaign itself, a move she likened to that typically seen used by totalitarian tyrants in third-world nations.
She said there was no legal basis to justify the use of the informant — who she declined to name but whose identity has increasingly become widely presumed — and pointed out that he had no real reason to have any sort of contact with the minor campaign figures he came into contact with.
Pirro also heaped plenty of criticism on current Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who she viewed as, at best, doing little to nothing to expose these dastardly deeds by their predecessors in the Department of Justice, and at worst being complicit in the wrongdoing and subsequent coverup.
Given what we already know and suspect about how the Obama administration played fast and loose with the laws and rules that got in the way of implementing and protecting their liberal agenda, it is not out of the question to wonder just how involved Lynch — as well as fired FBI Director James Comey, among others — played in this now-confirmed spying on the Trump campaign.
Consider Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport in June 2016, just ahead of the announced exoneration of Hillary Clinton and the opening of the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
It is widely assumed that Clinton’s email investigation was a topic of discussion — not just golf and grandchildren as Lynch had claimed — between herself and the former president, but was a potential plan to stymie Trump’s campaign with an investigation to undermine his presidency, in the off chance he actually won, also a topic of the conversation?
We may never know the exact content of that discussion, but we could one day find out that Lynch did indeed sign off on the use of an informant to assist the FBI in spying on the campaign of a political opponent. Such a revelation would be nothing short of devastating to the supposedly “scandal-free” Obama administration.
