Former Deep State FBI Lawyer and Alleged Leaker James Baker Says He is “Nervous” About Upcoming DOJ Inspector General Report
Baker went public on Friday to defend the origins of the junk Russia-Collusion spying scandal and to attack the sitting US President.
President Trump managed to survive a coup attempt by the deep state, their fake news media and the Democrat Party the first two years of his presidency.
The Trump haters are all trying to go on record before the Inspector General’s report drops.
House Republicans revealed in a letter earlier this year that James Baker is under criminal investigation for leaks.
CNN reported on Baker’s interview with the liberal Brookings Institution on Friday:
“Almost all of the top FBI officials who oversaw the Russia investigation have now publicly spoken out against Trump, an extraordinary and unprecedented rebuke of a sitting president.
“There was a point in time relatively recently where I just became sick of all the BS that is said about the origins of the (Russia) investigation, and I just got fed up with it,” Baker said… ”I want to talk about the origin of the investigation to reassure the American people that it was done for lawful, legitimate reasons and was apolitical throughout, in my experience.””
The liberal media is working in concert with the deep state to “create” a “predicate” that previously didn’t exist to explain away Obama’s spying on his political opponents during an election.
Former FBI General Counsel James Baker admitted on Friday that he is “nervous” about DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into the conduct of the DOJ and the FBI during the Trump-Russia probe.
Sitting down with with Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes in a crowded room at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Baker said he is “assuming that they will dig and find stuff” and that “we’ll try to sort it out and see what mistakes were made.” But Baker defended the FBI’s actions, including its use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Horowitz’s investigation is particularly focused on alleged FISA abuse and the reliance on British ex-spy Christopher Steele in FISA applications targeting Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
