Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom called-out senior officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice over their elaborate “plot” to protect Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election; saying they went so far as to create a “back up plan” should Trump win the White House.
Kalstrom was speaking with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning when he was asked to weigh-in on the recent firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
“Let’s put this in context for a moment. You’ve got ten people at the top of the FBI and Department of Justice who have been either fired or re-assigned. Obviously, this is no coincidence. Do you think somebody was directing them or they just came to this conclusion on their own?” asked Bartiromo.
“We have ample facts revealed to us during this last year and half that high-ranking people throughout the government, not just the FBI, had a plot to not-have Hillary Clinton indicted, so that she could remain the flawed candidate that she was,” fired back the former FBI official.
“They also had a back-up plan to basically frame Donald Trump. That’s what’s been going on in my opinion. How would you feel if somebody in America had a phony scheme on you and it just went on for months and months?” he asked.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Memo ACTUALLY CONFIRMS FBI’s Misuse of ‘Trump Dossier’
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff released his highly-anticipated “rebuttal” to Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell FISA report over the weekend; inadvertently confirming the FBI’s use of the ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain surveillance warrants.
According to former assistant US attorney Andrew McCarthy, Schiff’s report details the bureau’s use of Christopher Steele’s shady dossier to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign, saying the Democrat “rebuttal” shows the “FBI and Justice Department heavily relied on the Steel Dossier’s uncorroborated allegations.”
“You know this is true because, notwithstanding the claim that ‘only narrow use’ was made ‘of information from Steele’s sources,’ the Democrats end up acknowledging that ‘only narrow use’ actually means significant use,” writes McCarthy in the National Review.
Schiff’s memo comes weeks after Nunes released his four-page bombshell report that raised serious questions over how the DOJ used the Clinton-financed Trump dossier to obtain FISA warrants against at least one Trump associate.
Congressional leaders -such as Sen. Chuck Grassley- have vowed to get to the bottom of whether former Obama officials used the shady document to illegally spy on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: FBI’s McCabe Behind CLINTON INVESTIGATION Leaks in 2016
Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe was reportedly behind the illegal leaks regarding Hillary Clinton’s ongoing email investigation in 2016, releasing sensitive material to the Wall Street Journal ahead of the US presidential election.
According to a bombshell story in the New York Times, an upcoming report from the DOJ’s Inspector General is expected to blame McCabe for the unprecedented amount of leaks originating in the bureau ahead of Election Day.
“A Justice Department review is expected to criticize the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, for authorizing the disclosure of information about a continuing investigation to journalists, according to four people familiar with the inquiry,” writes the Times.
“It is unclear whether the inspector general will identify others who spoke about the Clinton investigation. But Mr. McCabe is by far the most prominent subject,” the article adds.
The revelation comes as the FBI enters another month marred in controversy.
The bureau has been the focus of Congressional investigators for weeks following Rep. Devin Nunes’ explosive FISA memo last month; alleging the agency used Clinton-financed material to spy on senior Trump associates.
