OneSource has intentionally remained silent concerning the developing saga surrounding the FBI, CIA, DNI, and DOJ roots of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and possible corruption leading to the highest levels of the Obama administration. With media powerhouses like Sean Hannity, Tom Fitton, and Sara Carter putting out explosive revelations weekly – if not daily, one more voice seemed like overkill.
Besides not wanting to add to the cacophony of voices reporting the same stories, it seemed extremely unlikely that any of the bluster – from either political party – would result in criminal charges, so it appeared pointless to regurgitate the same information over and over.
After a year, it’s evident Mueller has nothing to prove Trump-Russian collusion and is grasping at straws to find anything he and his team can use against the President. The House and Senate have been equally unfruitful in bringing charges against what they label abuses. It all looked like political theater.
With revelations revealed on the Hannity show Thursday, May 31, and articles published on Friday, June 1, by investigative reporters John Solomon and Sara Carter, however, it appears the investigation into the investigators is starting to reveal the true extent of the corruption.
John Solomon, whose article for The Hill is titled “London ‘bridges’ falling down: Curious origins of FBI’s Trump-Russia probe”, works through a timeline of when the Trump-Russia probe began in earnest while highlighting potential malfeasance that precipitated the probe. Solomon states:
The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.
It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.
The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?
He goes on to quote concerns from Rep. Mark Meadows (R NC) and retired FBI Assistant Director for Intelligence Kevin Brock regarding how the investigation into Trump began and how it was run.
“The revelation of purposeful contact initiated by alleged confidential human sources prior to any FBI investigation is troublesome. … This new information begs the questions: Who were the informants working for, who were they reporting to and why has the [Department of Justice] and FBI gone to such great lengths to hide these contacts?” ~ Rep. Mark Meadows (R NC)
“These types of investigations aren’t normally run by assistant directors and deputy directors at headquarters. All that happens normally in a field office, but that isn’t the case here and so it becomes a red flag.” ~ Kevin Brooks, former FBI Assistant Director for Intelligence
Solomon also credits Kevin Brooks with being partially responsible for rewriting the rules for how the FBI handles human sources while linking to the ACLJ released FBI Operations Guide containing those rule. As a point of reference, Kevin Brooks can be seen below in an interview on Fox News from December 2017 regarding his concerns about FBI bias.
I would encourage you to read John Solomon’s complete article. It’s not long, yet it is informative and contains many links to verifiable third-party materials.
Sara Carter reinforces John Solomon’s claims of London intelligence sources being the starting point of the Trump-Russia probe in her expose titled “PANDORA’S BOX: Trump/Russia May Expose Extent of ‘Five Eyes’ Allied Spying.” Her timeline begins with an unspecified date in late 2015 where she asks some very important questions:
According to several former and current western intelligence sources who spoke to this reporter, the investigations into President Donald Trump and his campaign began much earlier than has been reported and for that matter, it did not begin in the United States but rather across the Atlantic Ocean, in Great Britain…
Great Britain, which is part of what is called the “Five-Eyes” alliance includes the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand and the countries often shared signals intelligence, raw communications between targets they were investigating…
If this did occur, how directly involved were CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in the information being shared by our allies? And how often had American political communications, unknown to the public, been intercepted by foreign governments for political purposes?
From there, Ms. Carter chronicles a portion of the unfolding events, beginning with Michael Flynn’s trip to Moscow December 10, 2015 to his firing February 13, 2017. In between, she connects every known target and official associated with the investigation, and like Solomon, she has copious links to third-party proof texts. You’ll need to look closely, however, as the links may be hard to distinguish from the main text due to the dark red coloring.
The key takeaway from her exhaustive article seems contrary to recent claims by James Clapper that the intelligence gathering was not intended to target candidate Trump, but instead, the Russians.
Clapper’s claims prompt two questions.
1.) Why is he trying to distance himself from any responsibility to be “in-the-know” regarding the investigation?
2.) Why wasn’t candidate Trump and his team read-in from the beginning regarding the potential Russian meddling so they could cooperate with the investigation? Instead, it appears the entire Executive Branch and intelligence apparatus of the Obama administration were in on it from the beginning, along with many of our allies. Very disturbing.
It appears the London “bridge of information” that instigated the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is starting to crumble as more and more facts are revealed. We can only hope tenacious investigators like John Solomon, Sara Carter, and Chuck Ross keep revealing what their sources provide.
Moving forward, OneSource will resume its coverage of key details concerning all things Trump-Russia related, so we can bring all the relevant information together in one place.
