John Solomon reports at The Hill that former FBI general counsel James Baker has admitted to Congress that he met with Democratic National Committee lawyer Michael Sussman of Perkins Coie in September 2016 and received "documents and a thumb drive related to Russian interference in the election, hacking and possible Trump connections." 

This is a key addition to the mounting pile of evidence that the FBI was fully aware of the partisan political origins of the Trump-Russia allegations, and nevertheless advanced them as solid "intelligence" on applying to the FISA court for authorization to spy on the Trump team.

Solomon also discusses James Baker's communications with David Corn of Mother Jones, which I highlighted here, noting the incongruity, once upon a normal time, of an FBI general counsel in communication with a reporter from a far-Left publication...

An open letter to Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Sen. John Cornyn, Jerome Corsi, Joseph diGenova, Sen. Lindsay Graham, Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and all other conservatives who still decry “McCarthyism”:

After a year of Fusion GPS stonewalling, the American people finally learned that the DNC and Hillary Clinton had paid for it.

Today, Corn denied Baker was his source. Whatever. Why, though, would Baker be talking to Corn? That is, why would the general counsel of the FBI be talking to Mother Jones? 

This is a serious question. Talking with the press isn't a general counsel's job. What would make Baker want to talk with Mother Jones and not send the call down to press relations?...

Some seventy years ago, after Alger Hiss lied under oath and was believed, celebrated, lionized as "credible." Whittaker Chambers was finally able to prove his case with evidence.

On the day of Hiss's initial set of bald-faced lies to the nation, though, even Chambers' biggest congressional supporters were shaken, calling him up at his office at Time magazine, asking if he was sure he was right about Hiss.

From American Betrayal, p. 179

“Are you sure,” “In a voice in which I caught the unmistakable note of des- peration,” Chambers would write, he asked, “are you sure you are right about Alger Hiss?”

Of course, Chambers reassured...
