(Right Country) – Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has done it again. These good folks have proven time and time again they are on a righteous quest to expose corruption in the government, bringing balance to the scales that have been tipped in favor of liberals for far, far too long.
Judicial Watch announced on Wednesday that it had finally obtained the “electronic communication” responsible for launching the now infamous “Crossfire Hurricane” spy operation into President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, back in July of 2016, FBI Agent Peter Strzok opened up a counterintel operation called “Crossfire Hurricane” based on suspicions — notice the absence of the word “evidence” — that Russia had infiltrated Donald Trump’s inner circle.
Check out the details from Gateway Pundit:
For years the DOJ and FBI have resisted the release of this EC, and now we know why! It revealed the entire spying operation was a scam!
The “electronic communication” that launched Crossfire Hurricane was written by Peter Strzok and obtained by Judicial Watch as the result of a FOIA lawsuit.
The document was declassified and released with redactions.
The EC reveals Peter Strzok opened Crossfire Hurricane based on third-hand information that the Russian government “had been seeking prominent members of the Donald Trump campaign in which to engage to prepare for potential post-election relations should Trump be elected U.S. President.”
Peter Strzok also alleged Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos claimed to an unnamed individual that “they (the Russians) could assist the Trump campaign with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.”
“It was unclear whether he [Papadopoulos] or the Russians were referring to material acquired publicly of [sic] through other means. It was unclear how Mr. Trump’s team reacted to the offer. We note the Trump team’s reaction could, in the end, have little bearing of what Russia decides to do, with or without Mr. Trump’s cooperation.”
Remember back when the left poked fun at conservatives for suggesting there was a Deep State inside the government that was actively attempting to undermine President Trump? Well, who is laughing now? All of these emails and documents being released have made it clear that forces were at working against Trump from the very beginning. It was an effort to preserve the infrastructure put in place by the former administration to transform America into a socialist country. Progressives needed to win, to stop Trump from being able to undo all that Obama had done.
Now we’re all finding out who was responsible for the plot.

Title: (S/ / CC/NF) CROSSFIRE HURRICANE
Re: [Redacted] 07/31/2016
(U/ /FOUO) Legat [Redacted] information from [Redacted] Deputy Chief of Mission
(U/ /FOUO) Legat [Redacted] received information from the [Redacted] Deputy Chief of Mission related to the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s website/server.
(S/ /REL TO USA[Redacted] On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, Legal Attaché (Legat) [Redacted] was summoned to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) for the [Redacted] who will be leaving [Redacted] post Saturday July 30, 2016 and set to soon thereafter retire from government service, advised [Redacted] was called by [Redacted] about an urgent matter requiring an in person meeting with the U.S. Ambassador. [Note: [Redacted]. The [Redacted] was scheduled to be away from post until mid-August, therefore [Redacted] attended the meeting.
(S/ [Redacted]) [Redacted] advised that [Redacted] government had been seeking prominent members of the Donald Trump campaign in which to engage to prepare for potential post-election relations should Trump be elected U.S. President. One of the people identified was George Papadopolous (although public media sources provide a spelling of Papadopoulos), who was believed to be one of Donald Trump’s foreign policy advisers.
Mr. Papdopoulos was located in [Redacted] so the [Redacted] met with him on several occasions, with [Redacted] attending at least one of the meetings.
(S/ [Redacted]) [Redacted] recalled [Redacted] of the meetings between Mr. Papdopolous and [Redacted] concerning statements Mr. Papadopolous made about suggestions from the Russians that they (the Russians) could assist the Trump campaign with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton. [Redacted] provided a copy of the reporting that was provided to [Redacted] from [Redacted] to Legal [Redacted]. The text is exactly as follows:
(S/ [Redacted]) 5. Mr. Papadopolous [Redacted] also suggested the Trump team had received some kind of suggestion from Russia that it could assist this process with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to Mrs. Clinton (and President Obama). It was unclear whether he or the Russians were referring to material acquired publicly of through other means. It was also unclear how Mr. Trump’s team reacted to the offer. We note the Trump team’s reaction could, in the end, have little bearing of what Russia decides to do, with or without Mr. Trump’s cooperation.
(s/ [Redacted] Legat requests that further action on this information should consider the sensitivity that this information was provided through informal diplomatic channels from [Redacted] to the U.S. Embassy’s DCM. It was clear from the conversation Legal [Redacted]
had with DCM that [Redacted] knew follow-up by the U.S. government would be necessary, but extraordinary efforts should be made to protect the source of this information until such a time that a request from our organization can be made to [Redacted] to obtain this information through formal channels.
(S/ / CC/NF) Based on the information provided by Legat [Redacted] this investigation is being opened to determine whether individual(s) associated with the Trump campaign are witting of and/or coordinating activities with the Government of Russia.
We are truly living in unprecedented times. The entire Obama administration was actually involved in a political conspiracy against Donald Trump. Read that again. Let it marinate in your brain for a minute. Did you ever, in your wildest dreams, imagine you would see such a thing? And it be part of the reality we occupy?
Truth is stranger than fiction, right? That’s certainly true here.
