(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Evidence has emerged that former President Barack Obama played no small role in the orchstration of the Russia-collusion hoax that the Democrats used to stifle then-President Donald Trump during his first two years in office, the Epoch Times reported.
But oddly, the government had not yet obtained the relevant server images that would indicate whether or not Russia was, in fact, involved.
FBI emails, released during the recent trial of Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann, showed that the images were not available when Obama approved the statement.
They were accessible only after the private cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike agreed to mail the servers to the FBI on Oct. 13 of the same year.
According to then-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Obama himself actually pushed for the release of the statement.
“The president approved the statement,” Johnson said before the House Intelligence Committee in June 2017.
“I know he wanted us to make the statement,” Johnson added. “So that was very definitely a statement by the United States government, not just Jim Clapper and me.”
Parts of the statement itself call into question exactly how much Obama and the FBI knew, and when.
For example, it suggested that the FBI was “confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations.”
“The recent disclosures of alleged hacked emails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts,” the statement continued.
Even CrowdStrike President Shawn Henry suggested there was no firm evidence that anything from the DNC was ever stolen.
“We have indicators that data was exfiltrated. We did not have concrete evidence that data was exfiltrated from the DNC, but we have indicators that it was exfiltrated,” Henry told lawmakers on Dec. 5, 2017.
