Morning Greatness: Declassified Docs Show Feds Nixed Hillary Election Interference FISA

Good Monday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in a tour of Flavor First Growers and Packers  in Mills River, North Carolina
  • President Trump delivers remarks on Farmers to Families Food Box Program Distribution Mills River, North Carolina

Feds wanted to get  FISA so they could investigate foreign interference on Hillary campaign.

Formerly classified documents released on Sunday show that the FBI wanted to get a FISA warrant when they investigated an unnamed foreign government’s attempt to influence the Hillary Clinton campaign. But they didn’t. Instead the feds gave Hillary a defensive briefing. If you recall, Senator Dianne Feinstein who was at one time the Chairperson of the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI) also got a defensive briefing after the feds learned that an ACTUAL CHINESE SPY had been working for her for 20 years. But feds took a very different path for President Trump.

One FBI agent involved in the investigation asked then-FBI Director James Comey in an April 2015 email for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant, according to the documents, published by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.

A FISA order was not granted in the investigation. Instead, an FBI special agent provided a defensive briefing to Clinton’s personal lawyers in October 2015.

These documents would have been really helpful when the Democrat-led terror proxy media was brainwashing the public with fantasies that Trump was a Putin stooge. “There was a clear double standard by the Department of Justice and FBI when it came to the Trump and Clinton campaigns in 2016,” Graham said after the documents were released, which the Justice Department declassified on Saturday.

The documents are heavily redacted so we do not know what foreign government was trying to influence Hillary. Do you have any guesses? Let me know in the comments.

The RNC starts this week.

Here is a list of the speakers. Some notable appearances by Nicholas Sandmann, Kim Klacik, Rick Grenell and Alice Johnson along with the usual politicians and family members. Will you tune in? President Trump told Steve Hilton this weekend that his second term priorities are China and school choice.
