New Witness, James Baker, Ties Hillary to Illegal FISA Warrants

Congressional investigators learned something they never knew before and that is there was someone feeding information to those trying to get a FISA warrant on Carter Page, Hillary Clinton, through her Perkins Coie law firm. That’s the same firm that hired Fusion GPS on behalf of Clinton and the DNC. Baker has been a surprise as a witness, as he was neck deep in the swamp but now appears to be telling everything he knows and that could send a few people to prison, including possibly Hillary Clinton. Michael Sussmann, a lawyer for the firm Perkins Coie, provided documents and electronic media related to Russian meddling in the election. That information probably came from the Hillary dossier, prepared by Christopher Steele.

From The Daily Caller

A lawyer for the Democrat-connected law firm that commissioned an investigation into President Donald Trump’s links to Russia passed information to the FBI’s top attorney in the weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

Perkins Coie is the firm that hired opposition researcher Fusion GPS to investigate Trump. The result of the contract was the infamous but unverified Steele dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Sources familiar with Baker’s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform Committees tell The Daily Caller News Foundation that he said Sussmann approached him for the meeting, which occurred in late summer or early fall 2016.

The meeting took place before the FBI submitted an application for its first FISA warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. That warrant application, which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016, relied heavily on unverified allegations made in the report authored by former British spy Christopher Steele.

Steele had been hired by Fusion GPS in June 2016 to investigate Trump.

What is not clear yet, is what Sussmann told investigators, but since he was in all likelihood speaking for Clinton, we could easily guess.
