Bombshell: Judicial Watch Sues DOJ For Documents On FBI Informant Inside The Trump Campaign
Judicial Watch has been fighting the good fighting for a while now. As we have previously reported they have continued to pressure Clinton INC and even won a divisive hearing to depose Hillary Clinton.
On Tuesday Judicial Watch announced that they have filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Justice and want all records of communications including 302 FBI interview reports and “offer agreements” between former special counsel Robert Mueller’s off and Felix Sater who worked for the Trump organization. Now that the Mueller report and the IG report have been made public it appears that Mr. Felix Sater was a plant and informant for the FBI during the campaign. Judicial Watch reports:
Sater reportedly “began working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1998, after he was caught in a stock-fraud scheme.” It was Andrew Weissmann who, as supervising assistant U.S. attorney, signed the agreement that brought Sater on as a government informant. Federal prosecutors wrote a letter to Sater’s sentencing judge on August 27, 2009, in an effort to get him a lighter sentence: “Sater’s cooperation was of a depth and breadth rarely seen.”
Sater also was reportedly a CIA informant in the mid-2000s for the CIA during his undercover work with Russian military and intelligence officers.
The Mueller report mentions Sater more than 100 times but fails to mention that he was an active undercover informant for the FBI/CIA for more than two decades. In 2017, Sater was the subject of two interviews conducted under a proffer agreement with Mueller’s office according to page 69, footnote 304 of Mueller’s report on his Russian collusion investigation.
According to the information obtained by Judicial Watch’s investigative report Micah Morrison it looks like the Obama Justice Department tried to set things up from the beginning. Late in 2015 Sater continually tried to arrange a meeting with Michael Cohen and candidate Trump to travel to Russia to meet with Russian officials and possible financing partners. The Trump campaign rejected the offer repeatedly and Sater continued to persist. Coincidently the Mueller Report notes, “Into 2016 Sater and Cohen continued to discuss a trip to Moscow.” Sater emails Cohen that he is trying to arrange a meeting between “the 2 big guys,” Putin and Trump; it never happens. Sater’s re-emergence “suggests the possibility of a more sinister counter-narrative: that someone may have been trying to lure Trump into a trap—a politically damaging entanglement with Moscow money,” Morrison wrote.
Sater testified for eight hours in a closed-door session before the Schiff-led intelligence committee on July 9, 2019. It appears that Sater may have been a spy for the FBI and tried to tie then candidate to Russia in an effort to smear him.
The good people at Judicial Watch are Pit Bulls and we should thank them for it everyday.
