Last week, we discovered that the FBI helped out Hillary Clinton on election night last year by monitoring “fake news” from Russia. Now, we’re learning one person involved with the investigation has come forward to say that he thought the monitoring was “on the edge of Constitutional legality.”
According to a report from CNN published Friday, the FBI decided to set up a command center to monitor Russian “fake news” being spread on social media on Election Day — and all with your taxpayer dollars!
“On Election Day, dozens of agents and analysts huddled at a command center arrayed with large monitoring screens at the FBI headquarters in Washington watching for security threats, according to multiple sources,” CNN reported.
“That included analysts monitoring cyber threats, after months of mounting Russian intrusions targeting every part of the US political system, from political parties to policy think-tanks to state election systems.”
Perhaps even more unbelievably, officials from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence would hold conference calls with the White House every three hours to discuss what was being discovered.
Take a wild guess which candidate this was designed to help. I certainly think I can.
One source who was briefed on the investigation noted that the FBI investigating “fake news” was dangerously close to violating First Amendment protections on free speech.
“We were right on the edge of Constitutional legality,” the source said. “We were monitoring news.”
While “minor issues” were reported in places like Alaska and Georgia “(a)t the end of day, top officials exchanged congratulations for an election day that was completed without disruptions of the vote.”
Interestingly enough, however, the report revealed that other Obama officials were already formulating the excuse for Hillary’s debate that they’ve been using ever since: Russia done did it.
“One Obama White House official responded to the messages of congratulations with the opposite view, saying the US government response to the Russian operation was ‘a failure of imagination,’” the report read.
“‘Are you kidding?’ that official recalled saying to others at the White House as they celebrated a successful election. ‘What they did worked!’”
So, just so we’re clear, the Obama administration used the FBI to monitor “fake news” on Election Day, ostensibly to help out Hillary Clinton, and was outraged that they didn’t do enough to help Hillary.
What a shocker.
