ICYMI| Newly revealed notes made by high-ranking Department of Justice (DOJ) officials during a meeting of high-ranking FBI officials on March 6th, 2017 show that they were terrified by Donald Trump’s claim that Barack Obama had been spying on his campaign. They were afraid that if he knew too much about their unlawful operations, he would take action against them as president.

The notes were released by Michael Sussmann’s lawyers less than a week ago in order to show that the FBI was aware that their client was representing a client when he met with James Baker. The notes do not actually exonerate Sussmann, but they are significant in the eyes of the FBI. President Trump accused Obama of eavesdropping on him just two days before the meeting. The conference was clearly convened to determine how to contain the damage and to learn exactly what Trump knew for definite.

By March 2017, FBI officials were almost certain that the Trump–Russia conspiracy allegations were a fiction. They were aware that Hillary planned to set up Trump in order to make it appear like he was in cahoots with Putin, but they were also concerned that all of this would be discovered, and that it may backfire on them.

The FBI’s concern was that they didn’t know how much Trump was aware of their operations. The Obama administration had secured Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) orders that involved Trump and several of his campaign advisers just a day earlier, on March 3, 2017, according to radio host Mark Levin. Trump’s off-the-cuff quip in July 2016—”Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to recover the 30,000 emails that are missing”—had also been the basis for the Russia collusion allegations, according to Levin.

However, as we now know, the FBI’s leadership was involved in more than just FISA warrants. The FBI was actively spying on the Trump campaign and the transition communications of the future Trump administration, according to the new documents. The FBI had spied on not only Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, but also on another aide, George Papadopoulos, even luring him to London in a botched but intricate sting.

Three DOJ officials—Tashina Gauhar, Mary McCord, and Scott Schools—took notes at the meeting. The notes were disclosed because one of them appears to demonstrate that when McCabe reported the Alfa Bank charges to the FBI, he stated that Sussmann had represented clients. Sussmann first told the FBI that he was working as a good samaritan and didn’t represent anyone. Sussmann has been charged with lying to the FBI, and his lawyers are seeking to raise doubt by introducing that single statement that appears to contradict the indictment.
