GRASSLEY DEMANDS ANSWERS FROM WRAY OVER RAID OF WHISTLEBLOWER ON CLINTON FOUNDATION​

https://www.dailycaller.com/2018/12/03/grassley-fbi-whistleblower-raid/
In the wake of a bombshell Daily Caller News Foundation investigative report late last week, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley demanded answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray about a Nov. 19 bureau raid on the home of a recognized whistleblower.... The whistleblower, Dennis Cain, who was once employed by an FBI contractor, reportedly turned over documents to the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz regarding the bureau’s failure to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and the Russian company that purchased Uranium One.
Horowitz subsequently deemed Cain a whistleblower protected under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act, Cain’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF…. Cain even told the FBI when they raided his house that he was legally protected and that he had already turned over all his documents to the DOJ and Congress but they broke in anyway.... Grassley sent a letter to Wray on Nov. 30 asking pointed questions about the raid on Cain’s private residence in Union Bridge, Maryland. (EXCLUSIVE: FBI Raids Home Of Whistleblower On Clinton Foundation, Lawyer Says)


~~~~~~
Who ordered the raid on Dennis Cain? Was it Team Mueller, Team Whitaker, Team FBI Top Floor Friends of Comey? Certainly, The FBI would have known the items were already in their possession .... Is this intimidation of a possible future witness?
Is this another attempt to derail anything about the Clintons and their foundation and other enterprises until Mueller can release his crap that written by his team of Democrat conspirators to trash Trump without any evidence undoubtedly to fuel mayhem about impeachment so all the Clinton criminal dealings are forgotten and spare a whole lot of people involved with the Clintons prison time.
This is a major breach incident! If people who report corruption are attacked by the government, nobody will report corruption. People will be too scared. Look what happened to this man who tried to do the right thing.
Congress has supposedly passed laws protecting whistleblowers, Cain had done this the right way and was an official Protected Whistleblower. Allowing those within the DOJ and FBI to violate the law and Mr. Cain's rights shows that they'll blatantly violate any law to protect themselves.

Yeah; I read on that several days ago when the first twitter reports/comments started to pour in. No MSM was reporting on it.
Fox is doing a lukewarm reporting now that Grassley got involved.
According to some twitter comments, Hannity was supposed to have an interview with Cain but in the end it was cancelled.

I really would like to know what that was all about and why a "government-protected" whistleblower got raided by the FBI for information/documents which he had turned over to the government.

:confused:

In review, The Daily Caller is a strongly right leaning news and opinion website that has been involved with publishing controversial and false stories. For example, they routinely publish misleading or false information regarding climate change that goes against the consensus of science. The Daily Caller has also published articles by Jason Kessler, a white supremacist who organized a rally of hundreds of white nationalists in Charlottesville. They subsequently scrubbed those articles after the Charlottesville vehicular homicide incident. The Daily Caller frequently uses loaded emotional language that typically favors the right. In reviewing story content, virtually all favored the right in story selection and wording, while denigrating the left. The Daily Caller also promotes a favorable view of President Donald Trump through promotion of his policies. A factual search reveals a very poor track record with fact checking.

As the whistleblower's information pertains to Uranium I and Clintons' and Mueller's involvement, I can only suspect that the MSM wants to protect their good boy Mueller and the old hag.

Otherwise, any other FBI raid on a government-protected whistleblower would have been front news for at least 2 or 3 days.

Looks like we will have to wait for more info from "underground" sources and maybe even Grassley.

As usual, stonewalling ...

Fox News - last night - "... Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel has oversight of the Justice Department, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department IG General Michael Horowitz, requesting information on the justification for the raid. Grassley gave Wray and Horowitz until Dec. 12 to respond to his request.

That deadline has come and gone, and neither the FBI nor DOJ has produced any documents or response.

"We have not yet received answers to the chairman's questions on this matter," a Judiciary Commitee spokesperson told Fox News late Thursday.
