Nunes: FBI was running ‘bounty program’ to get President Trump

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Former House Intelligence Committee chief Rep. Devin Nunes, retired from Congress, says the evidence now is revealing that the FBI was running a “bounty program” in its efforts to undermine President Trump.

The evidence is being revealed at special counsel John Durham’s trial for Igor Danchenko, who is accused of lying to the FBI.

The comments came in an interview with John Solomon of Just the News.

The revelations so far in the trial for the “sub-source” thought to be the source for many of the wildly false claims that former British agent Christopher Steele compiled for his now-debunked “Dossier” have included that the FBI offered a $1 million bounty for proof that those claims were true.

That dossier was used by the FBI, even though it was known to be unverified, as “evidence” in court documents seeking permission for the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016.

The dossier was assembled under the funding of the Hillary Clinton campaign, which used its own Russian sources to make up claims that Trump’s campaign was, in fact, colluding with Russia.

It’s long since been debunked, including by the special counsel investigation by Robert Mueller and his staff of mostly leftist lawyers.

Durham’s trial evidence being presented in the Danchenko case prompted Solomon to explain that the special counsel “has turned the Russian researcher’s trial in the U.S. District courtroom in Alexandria, Va., into an expose of stunning FBI failures and omissions in its now-infamous pursuit of Donald Trump for crimes that turned out to be nonexistent.”

“While the Hillary Clinton-spawned Russian collusion narrative has been the subject of a half dozen exhaustive investigations in the House, Senate, and Justice Department, Durham has managed to use his third and widely assumed last trial to drop bombshell after bombshell that other inquiries failed to uncover. Even the most versed in the case have been stunned.”

Nunes told Solomon even though he’d subpoenaed the FBI to investigate its agenda against Trump, he’d never been told of the $1 million offer.
