Watchdog files lawsuit seeking DOJ documents on meetings between top FBI lawyer
and DNC lawyers
Judicial Watch announced Monday it filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Justice Department seeking records of all meetings in 2016 between former FBI General Counsel James Baker and the Perkins Coie law firm that worked for both the Clinton 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and has links to the infamous Christopher Steele dossier.
Back in October, the government transparency watchdog requested “all records concerning any and all meetings” between Baker and Perkins Coie. This was based on a news account at the time that Baker had told congressional investigators the law firm had reached out to him about “Russian hacking” in late-2016.
At the time, the FBI was preparing a FISA warrant to spy on Trump 2016 campaign volunteer Carter Page. This is widely believed to have been the genesis of the “Russia Narrative,” which ultimately led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The FBI has refused to comply with the FOIA request. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said:Dragon Turtle, 3FingerBrown, Pastiche and 4 othersiggy, ThinkingANew, mmonk, Enthusiast like thisI'm not a conspiracy theorist - I'm a conspiracy analyst. Gore Vidal
