Obama Gave Ben Cardin Classified Info To ‘Undermine’ Trump on Russia
The Obama administration provided classified information to Democratic Senator Ben Cardin in order to “undermine President Trump” in the Russia scandal.
Cardin is currently fighting to block the release of Devin Nunes’ memo on President Trump surveillance by the FBI. But Cardin’s hands are not clean in this affair.
The Obama State Department gave Cardin a packet, obtained by Judicial Watch, that explains the details of a supposed Russian effort to knock down the Magnitsky Act, an anti-adoption law, in the United States. That supposed effort served as the front for a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to set up a meeting with Don Trump Jr. in Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, which helped anti-Trump agents in the Deep State obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Trump Tower.
The Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative is even mentioned in the packet given to Cardin. That organization was founded by Natalia Veselnitskaya, who spent time in Russia with at least one agent for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the debunked Trump dossier.
“These documents show the Obama State Department under John Kerry gathered and sent its own dossier of classified information on Russia to Senator Ben Cardin, a political ally in the U.S. Senate, to undermine President Trump,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement to Big League Politics. Judicial Watch obtained the documents.
“Judicial Watch will pursue information on who pulled this classified information, who authorized its release, and why was it evidently dumped just days before President Trump’s inauguration,” Fitton said.
In the days leading up to Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, Deep State conspirators were plotting to invalidate Trump’s impending presidency before it even started.
Obama administration Director of National Intelligence James Clapper held a meeting in his last days in office to discuss the idea of going to a Supreme Court justice to block President Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to a high-level member of the intelligence community who spoke with a Big League Politics source.
Clapper discussed blocking the inauguration on the grounds that Trump was an illegitimate president due to alleged Russian interference in the election, according to the sources. It is not known whether Clapper ever actually convened a meeting with a Supreme Court justice to discuss the Russia case, or whether he simply discussed the idea of doing so. By the time Trump entered office on January 20, the Russia narrative was already underway.
A high-level member of the intelligence community who witnessed the meeting said that Clapper discussed going to one of three female Supreme Court justices to make the case that alleged Russian interference could invalidate Trump’s claim to the presidency.
Here’s a text the witness sent to BLP’s source:
Here’s another text the witness sent to BLP’s source around the same time, describing how the Deep State was making General Michael Flynn a “rising target” for his alleged involvement with Russians, and stating that House Speaker Paul Ryan is a “wild card” in the Deep State wars.
Big League Politics recently reported on an audiotape in which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh admitted that slain DNC staffer Seth Rich was the source for Wikileaks’ release of DNC emails in 2016, not a Russian hack. Hersh also said that Clapper and Obama administration CIA director John Brennan helped to create the Russia narrative against Trump.
