FBI Kept Field Agents In Dark About Clinton Camp Origins Of Trump-Alfa Claim

Shared By Peter Boykin – American Political Commentator / Citizen Journalist

In the final weeks leading up to the 2016 election, FBI agents were sent down a rabbit hole of chasing supposed secret communications between then-candidate Donald Trump and a Russia-linked bank.

Things might have gone differently on the FBI’s part if the bureau hadn’t kept its agents in the dark about the fact that the secret communications claim came from a lawyer, Michael Sussmann, on the payroll of the Democratic Party, FBI agent Ryan Gaynor testified during Sussmann’s trial in the District of Columbia on May 23.

While the FBI Cyber Division dismissed the allegation within a day, the FBI Chicago Field Office opened a full investigation-as opposed to a preliminary one-noting that this might have informed the broader FBI Trump-Russia probe launched by the FBI headquarters in July 2016.

On a cross-examination, Sussmann’s lawyers noted that it was Gaynor alone claiming the investigation was “Close-hold,” suggesting it was he himself who was withholding Sussmann’s identity from the field agents.

Scott Hellman, a supervisory special agent with the FBI Cyber Division, testified earlier in the trial that he wasn’t aware of such a referral and would have “Absolutely” found it strange if the Chicago field office thought the allegation came from the DOJ. The field office eventually closed the Trump-Alfa probe in January 2017, Gaynor said.

He’s so far obtained a guilty plea from a former FBI lawyer for doctoring a document.

He’s also charged Sussman and another person, Igor Danchenko, a Russia analyst formerly with the Brookings Institution, for lying to the FBI. Danchenko was paid to collect dirt on Trump by former British spy Christopher Steele, who was in turn hired to collect dirt on Trump by the Clinton campaign.
