Newly Declassified Documents Show John Kerry’s State Department Spread Russia Collusion Narrative

ocuments released last week by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham give insight into a bombshell revelation about the “role of John Kerry’s State Department in fueling the FBI’s dubious Russia collusion probe, showing it was the State Department that provided ‘information’ leading to the controversial surveillance of Carter Page” reports Breitbart.

Amongst the redactions released are parts of the Obama administration’s FISA warrant applications used to spy on Page. As Breitbart reports, the disclosures of the text claim Page was “an agent of a foreign power” and that “the status of the target was determined in or about October 2016 from information provided by the U.S. Department of State.”

Newly released information also highlights how much the FBI, run by James Comey at the time, heavily relied on the Christopher Steele dossier as proof of Russian collusion. Of course, the collusion was debunked, and the nonsensical Steele dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The State Department’s accusation that Page was a Russian agent “raises questions in light of previous reporting exposing connections on spreading the dossier claims between elements of Kerry’s State Department and Steele, as well as ties to longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer, who is a controversial figure long tied to various Clinton scandals” notes Breitbart.

John Kerry’s chief of staff at the State Department, John Finer, was also instrumental in distributing the dossier. When Finer received a summary of the dossier, although it was questionable, he shared it with John Kerry. Finer had received the dossier summary from an Obama State Department official, Jonathan M. Winer “who acknowledged regularly interfacing and exchanging information with Steele.”

Breitbart cites an op-ed Winer wrote in the Washington Post where he acknowledged that “while at the State Department, he shared anti-Trump material with Steele passed to him by longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal” and that the material all “originated with Cody Shearer, who is a controversial figure long tied to various Clinton scandals.”

  1. Really? It was based on a factual report, and factual reports. Where is the inaccuracy?

  2. OMG I thought only Democrats were filled with hatred?

  3. So the state department was sharing intel with Sidney, isn’t that illegal?

  4. John Kerry — throwing America under the bus for personal gain and advantage since 1969.

    In a real, KGB-style disinformation effort, people play different roles. Someone has to make up the lies. People have to work to disguise the actual origin of the lies. People have to publicize the lies. People have to feign outrage and stir up public revulsion over the lies. The Old Bag had plenty of loyal minions willing to do that dirty work.

  5. 🙈

  6. Spreading the truth is “domestic terrorism” now?

  7. Better than Trump.

  8. I knew since the days of our sincere antiwar efforts at protesting in the Vietnam era that John Kerry was the lowest of all scum. Coming from a now revealed highly privileged background he made so many phony news stories on his own and embarrassed us. Throwing his medals over the fence in Washington. Meaningless grandstanding with little to no involvement or communication with the peace group he pretended to be working with. A few people thought he was so cool. But not me. Even then.

  9. As all us crazy “conspiracy theorists” knew all along…Obama, Hillary, McCain
