Accusations of FBI Crimes by House Members; Reporters and Evidence Available
The lawmakers say they have proof of illegal activity — here are the latest details
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C., shown above right) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio, above left) appeared Wednesday night on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, “Hannity,” and claimed they’ve seen documents that detail former FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s “media leak” strategy, which allowed the two of them, and still allow them, to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump.
The two lawmakers claim they have evidence and proof of the illegal activity.
“There are dozens of documents that support the fact that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had ongoing relationships with multiple reporters, and that they were feeding them information to spin a narrative. It’s not legal, and it’s against protocol,” said Meadows to Hannity.
“They are denying it, and we have the proof that would suggest otherwise … We believe that all the documents need to be made available to the American people. Let them judge. We have nothing to hide. The president has nothing to hide. Let’s get it out there,” said Meadows, a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Rep. Jordan argued further about the need to be transparent with Americans across the country.
He also called the so-called Steele dossier, which accused Trump of colluding with various Russian interests, of being a big lie.
“What they did is, they said, ‘This is a big lie. The more people we can get to talk about the dossier, the more likely it is they will believe the lie.’ So that’s why they had this leak strategy — to support a document that was the basis for everything. That’s the big problem here,” said Jordan, a member of both the oversight panel and the House Judiciary Committee.
“They took that dossier, this untrue document — they took it to the secret court and didn’t tell the court important facts to get a warrant,” Jordan added.
The infamous dossier of unproven allegations about President Trump alleged collusion with Russian interests. Former British spy Christopher Steele compiled the dossier, which was paid for by 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). These events eventually led to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the Russian collusion allegations.
Meadows claimed that they have evidence — and that real reporters are named.
“We do need to reveal this,” said Meadows. “We know that [former FBI director] James Comey leaked. We know that Andrew McCabe leaked. We know that actually Peter Strzok and Lisa Page leaked. We also know that the reporters that they leaked to know that they leaked — and listen, we’ve got names. We’ve got actually reporters’ names.”
