Republican congressional leaders took their all-out war with senior Obama staffers to the next level Wednesday, officially sending a “criminal referral” to the Department of Justice over their role in using the infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ to obtain surveillance warrants against Trump campaign insiders.
In an explosive new report from Sara Carter, key details are emerging about the bombshell referral against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other senior staffers at the FBI and DOJ.
“Congressional lawmakers made a criminal referral to the Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions against former senior-level Obama administration officials, including employees of the FBI connected with the unverified dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as those involved in the warrants used to spy on a former Trump campaign volunteer, this reporter has learned,” writes Carter.
“The lawmakers also made a criminal referral on former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and threats made by her DOJ against the FBI informant, who provided the bureau with information on the Russian nuclear industry and the approval in 2010 to sell roughly 20 percent of American uranium mining assets to Russia,” she adds.
“House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Florida, along with nine other colleagues sent the letter Wednesday to Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray criminally referring former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for their involvement in the investigations into President Trump and alleged violations of federal law,” says the reporter.
