The Forgotten Rotten Egg in the Russia-Trump Hoax

In retrospect, connecting all the dots in Russia-Trump investigation and hoax it becomes glaringly obvious that the existential rot that exists in the “swamp” runs deep.  One can excuse a political novice like Trump for not realizing the depth of the problem at the time as he tried to create a cabinet and staff lower level positions, but it is inexcusable for others and possibly criminal.  And it all centers around the Carter Page FISA warrant.  One must follow the timeline to realize that one key actor- Dana Boente- the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia- was intimately involved.

The original FISA warrant was approved on October 21, 2016 with a subsequent renewal on January 12, 2017.  These were initiated by Obama administration officials as Trump was in transition and not yet sworn into office.  According to the Horowitz IG report, we know that at some point before end of January 2017, the FBI is aware the Steele dossier, upon which the FISA warrant is largely based, is unverified and possibly false altogether.  In the interim upon after being sworn in, the administration issues their travel ban order that draws the ire of the Left.  Sally Yates is fired for refusing to enforce the travel ban.  At this point, there is no Attorney General; Loretta Lynch is out and Jeff Sessions has not been confirmed.  Yates is replaced at the DOJ by Boente.

On February 8, 2017, Sessions is confirmed and the following day, Trump signs an Executive Order adjusting the line of succession at the DOJ in case of vacancies.  Under that Order, the key beneficiary is Boente who assumes the role of Deputy Attorney General until a replacement can be found.  He is no longer “acting;” he is the Deputy AG at this point.  Note that Boente was appointed to his original position, which he still retained, by Obama.

Then on March 2, 2017 a meeting is held chaired by Boente.  Also present are Jody Hunt, the Chief of Staff to AG Jeff Sessions, Jim Crowell, a Justice Department lawyer from Maryland, another DOJ lawyer, Tash Gauer, and Scott Schools- the Assistant Deputy Attorney General.  What is remarkable about this is that Gauer was a key legal adviser to the Department of Justice on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, and Schools helped draft the letter exonerating Clinton for any wrongdoing.  Further, the purpose of the meeting was to discuss and eventually convince AG Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from anything relating to Russia, which he then does.  Sessions does not know the conflicts of interest, although ignorance is no defense of his action.

With Sessions recused and out of the picture, FBI head James Comey must now report to Boente regarding the FISA warrant and ongoing investigations into the Trump campaign and, now, transition and administration.  Later that month, according to the IG report, the FBI is again warned about the validity of the Steele dossier.  Given these warnings, one would think the FBI would cease relying on the documents to obtain a FISA warrant renewed, but they do not.
