The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications, Fox News reports.
In a Thursday press conference, Paul Ryan bluntly stated that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Which bluntly means, The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.
House investigators found a name of a mole, and Mr. Nunes issued a letter and a subpoena demanding the details.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to accuse the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all spy novel’s arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”
It was noted in an editorial that appeared in Thursday edition of The Wall Street Journal, which said the readers could figure it out for themselves. According to Limbaugh, when the history is written, this will be an embarrassing time for the FBI.

Did the FBI Plant an Informant in the Trump Campaign?
I’m gonna try to make sense of all this as the program unfolds today, but I just wanted to tell you. I would not be surprised if, in fact, the FBI planted an informant in the Trump campaign in order to try to prove this Russia collusion business. I think these swamp people are so in the vapors with all of this — I think they’re so shocked and stunned over everything that’s happened — that they have long since abandoned any rationality whatsoever.
RUSH: Now, I want to turn to what I think may well in fact be the FBI having planted an informant in the Trump campaign, back in 2016.
And I’m not really even reading that much between the lines. I want to first start with a Washington Post story that is from this week. “Nunes Sought all Documents on Person Described as Longtime Intelligence Source.” That’s the headline. “A subpoena that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) issued to the Justice Department last week made a broad request for all documents about an individual who people close to the matter say is a sensitive, longtime intelligence source for the CIA and FBI.
Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Mark Levin explained why special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is not as it was formally designated, which was to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Instead, Levin argued it was to remove President Donald Trump from Congress through means other than impeachment.
If this turns out to be true, that the FBI planted a mole to take down President Trump, this will shake the very foundation of the American populace and the blatant links to Hillary Clinton and Soros, damn well better lead to their arrests.
