In an interview with Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Friday, Barr indicated his office is looking into “some very strange developments” that occurred between the election and Inauguration Day.
One of these events, Barr told Hemmer, was the meeting on January 6, 2017 between President-elect Trump, his transition team, and Obama’s top intelligence chiefs, including former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.
One question that Barr and his team should press is why did President Obama, in a meeting the day before, apparently give his blessing for the FBI director to warn the incoming president about the most outlandish accusation contained in the Steele dossier, one that remains unproven to this day. And it could lead to more questions about the handling of the dossier in the Obama White House weeks before Donald Trump was sworn in as president. . .
But another agenda was in the works: Concocting the plan to tell Trump the following day that the Russians had proof he engaged in perverse sexual behavior while visiting that country a few years prior. . .
As Comey explained in a December 2018 interview with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, Clapper told Obama about their plan to present the juicy news to Trump on January 6 at Trump Tower in New York. “There’s some additional material that is of a difficult nature and we’ve decided that we have to brief the incoming president about it,” Clapper told Obama, according to Comey. “It involves sexual allegations, an allegation he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow, that images of that were captured by the Russians so they’d be in a position to coerce the new president and we think we have to tell the incoming president.” (Read more from “Why Did Obama Allow Comey to Brief Trump on the Russian Prostitute Story?” HERE)
