DOJ: Spygate Investigation is ‘Much Larger Than Previously Known’
Justice Department outlines extent of FISA abuses and surveillance against Trump campaign
The Department of Justice has sent a letter to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), informing the Democratic House Judiciary Committee chairman that the investigation into spying on Donald Trump's 2016 campaign is "much larger than previously known."
The letter, written by Assistant AG Stephen Boyd, reveals that Attorney General William Barr’s review of the FISA abuses and surveillance against Trump’s team is “broad in scope and multifaceted.”
Fusion GPS, non-governmental organizations, foreign intelligence services, and individuals are all a target of "bulldog" US Attorney John Durham’s investigation into Spygate and the origins of the Russia Probe, according to the letter.
“The Review is broad in scope and multifaceted, and is intended to illuminate open questions regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals,” Boyd writes.
SCROLL DOWN FOR LETTER
According to GWP, Durham’s investigation of the investigations involving both the 2016 presidential campaigns (plural) is so massive that the Justice Department had to clear existing office space to make room for the team of US Attorneys, other personnel and DOJ employees.
Although Boyd did not specify, it is publicly known that Australian, British and perhaps Turkish intel groups were involved in the spying campaign against Trump and his associates during the 2016 presidential election.

According to George Papadopoulos, the ‘honeypot’ named ‘Azra Turk’ who approached him and tried to seduce him to obtain information about Trump’s 2016 campaign was “CIA and affiliated with Turkish intel.”
“New evidence that the Obama era team of the FBI, DOJ & CIA were working together to Spy on (and take out) President Trump, all the way back in 2015.” A transcript of Peter Strzok’s testimony is devastating. Hopefully the Mueller Report will be covering this. @OANN @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2019
The new DOJ letter also indicates that Durham may be looking into gutter oppo research firm Fusion GPS.
Glenn Simpson-owned Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to compile a 35-page Russia dossier to smear Donald Trump and his associates.
Hillary Clinton paid for the Russia dossier and hid the payments to Steele by funneling the money through the DNC’s law firm, Perkins Coie.
The phony dossier was then used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Last week it was reported that Christopher Steele was cooperating with US investigators, possibly Durham.
