In its zeal to embed a spy into the Trump campaign in 2016, the FBI not only likely broke laws, but also certainly violated its own rules. FBI guidelines — found in the bureau’s nearly 700-page Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide — restrict the use and deployment of informants in spying on American citizens.
With the FBI and DOJ having already demonstrated such disregard for both the law and the basic rules of investigation, this new report only adds to the body of evidence that Deep State operatives in those agencies are hell-bent on getting President Trump at any price.
For instance, besides planting Cambridge professor Stefan Halper — who has a history as a spy for political purposes — as a spy in the Trump campaign, Deep State operatives within the FBI and DOJ also protected Hillary Clinton from the consequences of her crimes while manufacturing the Trump/Russia collusion narrative and abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
But in placing Halper — a national security academic — in the campaign as a spy, the FBI violated its own rules regarding domestic spying. That may go a long way toward explaining the FBI’s and DOJ’s stubborn refusal to comply with a congressional subpoena for information about a “specific individual” whose name the House Intelligence Committee’s investigators uncovered even with the FBI and DOJ doing all in their power to keep that name from being known. The only reason the committee was ever able to force the DOJ to comply was by threatening Attorney General Jeff Sessions with charges of contempt of Congress.
