Senate Homeland Committee Has First Hearing from Obama Official Scheduled…Guess Who?
Yesterday, we reported that the Senate Homeland Security Committee finally authorized to issue subpoenas for top ranking Obama officials in connection the Russia investigation.
We also mentioned that among those that will be subpoenaed are former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
All of these names were very much expected because they are of course at the top of the chain of command and have a lot to do with the fake Russian collusion dossier.
The committee also authorized subpoenas for Sidney Blumenthal, former Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough, former FBI counsel Lisa Page, former FBI agent Joe Pientka, former ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, former FBI director of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, former White House national security adviser Susan Rice, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith – who pleaded guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign – among others.
Now we’re actually getting some timelines on when this will take place. It’s not just theory and well-wishes, but these testimonies are actually going to happen now.
It appears that the first will be former FBI Director James Comey who will testify before the Senate on September 30th.
The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reported that the committee would also interview the two FBI employees who spoke with the primary source for Christopher Steele’s dossier, which was used as the basis for the investigation into the Trump campaign. The primary source, Russia analyst Igor Danchenko, informed the FBI and the Justice Department in January 2017 that Steele embellished parts of his dossier, but the FBI didn’t include this information when applying for a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Graham’s decision to interview the two FBI employees is a chance, he told Hannity, to find out which FBI agents knew about what Danchenko said during his interviews that would undermine the investigation.
“Now who did the intel analyst and the case agent tell?” Graham said. “We’re going to talk to them in the next week to 10 days.”
I’m very much looking forward to these testimonies and I’m hoping for many more indictments in the coming months ahead.
