From the Epoch Times — “Declassified With Gina Shakespeare”:
In today’s episode, CIA Probed Over Role in Spygate Scandal. House Republicans are trying to find out more about the role the CIA played in the investigation the FBI started in 2016 into alleged ties between Russia and the campaign of then-candidate Donald Trump.
“The GOP investigators are focused on information related to the Trump-Russia probe the CIA provided to the FBI,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told Fox and Friends on April 19.
“We need to know exactly what did the CIA give to the FBI in 2016,” he said. “That’s what our investigation is now focusing on.”
The investigation, taken over in May 2017 by a special counsel, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, couldn’t establish any coordinated meddling in the 2016 election by the Trump campaign and Russia.
The probe, however, involved extensive spying on the Trump team, including the use of multiple informants who were sent to snoop on campaign staff.
