(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Senate Republicans are continuing their efforts in investigating the hoax Russia investigation pushed by former FBI director James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The investigation ultimately concluded that President Donald Trump did not collude with Russia during the 2016 campaign, but the investigation went on for so long that many people just started to believe it.
Now, former James Comey is set to appear in front of Congress to testify about the origins of the investigation and answer questions.
It should be particularly interesting given that Comey has yet to comment o the fact that a subsequent report from the Inspector General found that the FBI did not publish evidence that would have called into question the validity of the years-long investigation into alleged collusion.
Senate Republicans along with the United States Attorney General William Barr launched an investigation into the Russia investigation, and will soon have a chance to grill Comey on it. On September 30, the former FBI director will appear before Senator Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Graham spoke to Fox News about the upcoming hearing on Wednesday night with Fox News, saying that while Comey agreed to take part, Robert Mueller has refused.
“The day of reckoning is upon us when it comes to Crossfire Hurricane,” Graham said on Fox News, referring to “Crossfire Hurricane” name given to the fake investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign.
Two FBI employees are also set to be questioned by Republican investigation. The two employees spoke with the primary source used in the Christopher Steel dossier – the document that became the basis for the Russia investigation.
Igor Danchenko, the primary source, told the Justice Department and the FBI in January 2017 that Steele “embellished” parts of the dossier, but for some reason, the FBI didn’t disclose this information. Instead, the FBI went ahead with applying for a FISA warrant to monitor Carter Page, a Trump campaign aide.
If that information had been disclosed, the investigation may not have gone anywhere.
Graham said that interviewing Comey would be a chance to find out what else Danchenko said during interviews with the FBI.
