By The Blaze. It has become conventional “wisdom” on the left that Russia wanted Trump to win in 2016, and therefore they helped his campaign. The latter belief was debunked by the Mueller report—though many on the left still believe it. The theory that Russia wanted Trump to win has also persisted, but newly declassified evidence suggesting that Russia was spreading false information about Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign “is calling into question the Obama administration’s intelligence assessment that Moscow was trying to help the Republican win the 2016 election,” according to a report from Just The News’s John Solomon.
Evidence recently declassified by DNI Richard Grenell and Attorney General Barr revealed that as early as July 2016 British intelligence operative and FBI informant Christopher Steele was involved in an FBI investigation of Trump. The same evidence showed that the FBI was repeatedly warned that Steele was susceptible to Russia disinformation and that U.S. intelligence had “concluded some of his Hillary Clinton-funded dossier’s claims about Trump were false information planted by Moscow’s intelligence services.”
Experts agreed that efforts by Russia to provide false negative information about Trump to Christopher Steele “undercut the notion that Moscow was trying to defeat Clinton and help Trump.” (Read more from “Declassified Evidence: Russia DID NOT Try to Help Elect Trump in 2016” HERE)

By WND. It’s already well documented that the FBI under the Obama administration used a bogus, political opposition-research “dossier” based on anonymous Russian sources to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump administration.
Now, according to recently declassified information in Michael Horowitz’s inspector general report, FBI agents violated the privacy of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page by taking photographs of personal materials that had nothing to do with the investigation.
Investigative reporter John Solomon at Just the News writes the “list of FBI misdeeds in the Russia investigation keeps piling higher.”
“In addition to filing inaccurate Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants, hiding evidence of innocence from the courts and falsifying a government document, the bureau collected inappropriate cell phone photos during two secret premises searches in summer 2017 while spying on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.” (Read more from “‘Misdeeds’ of FBI Now Include Inappropriate Cell-Phone Photos” HERE)
