Report: Investigators Seeking To Clear Trump In Russia-Collusion Hoax Say They Were Spied On

Each day, it seems, the Justice Department only confirms the House Republicans’ advocacy of more investigations into the Biden administration.

Each day it seems the reasons expand for the House Republicans’ advocacy of more investigations into the Biden administration.

This comes after a revelation that the department (DOJ) subpoenaed records of at least two senior investigators who were working with Republican Rep. Devin Nunes to refute allegations that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russian operatives during the 2016 campaign.

On Monday, JustTheNews.com reported federal authorities obtained grand jury subpoenas to force Google to hand over personal phone and email records of the GOP investigators as they probed FBI abuses against Trump and members of his campaign.

The subpoenas were obtained in November 2017.

Although Trump was president at the time, senior FBI officials were investigating the president and his team in following up on allegations that stemmed from 2016, under then-President Barack Obama.

Those claims emanated from the infamous Steele dossier, a document funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and which formed the basis of the Russia-collusion hoax.

Just The News framed the Justice Department’s actions as an “extraordinary intrusion on congressional oversight,” adding that they were delivered to Google, as Nunes, the then House Intelligence Committee chairman, was trying to force the FBI and the Justice Department to hand over the records of its work on the anti-Trump Russia-collusion allegations.

The subpoenas came to light because Google has a policy of notifying people whose records it turns over in response to such requests after five years.

They were sought and delivered as Nunes probed for proof that the FBI knew the dossier about Trump crafted by former British spy Christopher Steele was faked.

Investigators demanded of Google the targets’ mailing addresses, residential addresses, business addresses, and e-mail addresses, as well as their usernames, screen names, local and long-distance telephone records, and even the “means and source of payment for such service (including any credit card or bank account number) and billing records.”

Kash Patel, one of the investigators targeted by the Justice Department, told Just The News that the revelation was “shocking.”

That’s because, he added, “a co-equal branch of government, we as congressional investigators and Devin Nunes, his staff on House Intel were conducting constitutional demanded oversight of the fraudulent acts at the FBI and DOJ which we now know happened.”

Nunes, who now runs Trump’s social media platform Truth Social, was more blunt.

“The FBI and DOJ spied on a presidential campaign, and when Congress began exposing what they were doing, they spied on us to find out what we knew and how we knew it,” Nunes told Just the News. “It’s an egregious abuse of power that the next Congress must investigate so these agencies can be held accountable and reformed.”

That seemed on tap.

“Shocking behavior. Going to be a busy 2 years for House GOP investigators!” GOP Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana tweeted along with the article.
