“FACT: There *was* an FBI conspiracy to help elect one of the two candidates in the 2016 presidential election.” ~Seth Abramson, former criminal investigator and defense attorney
Former criminal investigator and defense attorney, Seth Abramson, detailed the facts surrounding an alleged FBI conspiracy to help elect Trump.
Abramson began his Twitter thread with a link to an article by Huffington Post detailing the allegations.
Abramson begins by tweeting: “FACT: There *was* an FBI conspiracy to help elect one of the two candidates in the 2016 presidential election. It was a pro-Trump conspiracy in the New York field office of the FBI.”

The Huffington Post article can be summarized by the first paragraph, which reads:
Information presently public and available confirms that Erik Prince, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump conspired to intimidate FBI Director James Comey into interfering in, and thus directly affecting, the 2016 presidential election. This conspiracy was made possible with the assistance of officers in the New York Police Department and agents within the New York field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. All of the major actors in the conspiracy have already confessed to its particulars either in word or in deed; moreover, all of the major actors have publicly exhibited consciousness of guilt after the fact. This assessment has already been the subject of articles in news outlets on both sides of the political spectrum, but has not yet received substantial investigation by major media.
Below are a few of Abramson’s key observations:
- This reporting has been *significantly* augmented since it was first published, to include aid for the plot by Michael Flynn and Donald Trump Jr. on social media, as they augmented a story they knew was false—Prince’s hoax—to pressure Comey….
- Moreover, we’ve since seen reported in the news—the result of a FOIA lawsuit—emails from Andrew McCabe to Comey *confirming* the “fear of a leak” the NYT said motivated Comey stemmed in part from the “True Pundit Hoax” Prince, Trump Jr., Giuliani and Flynn all participated in….
- Democrats have TV interviews in which Giualiani confesses to receiving illegal leaks from “Trumplandia”—the New York field office of the FBI—and teases Comey being forced to “reopen” Clinton’s case (on false pretenses) days before it happened.
- Whatever activities Strzok and Page got up to post-election, a) it was post-election, and b) there’s no sign from Mueller or Inspector General Horowitz that these people nefariously influenced *any* FBI work product. The *Trumplandia* conspiracy *changed the election outcome*.
- The Trumplandia Conspiracy—and the “True Pundit Hoax” that was its chief feature—is a scandal that includes video, audio, confessions, top members of the Trump campaign, polling data confirming its influence on the election outcome. Devin Nunes’ memo is a *joke* by comparison….
- The Trumplandia conspiracy—the FBI laundering false info about Clinton emails through Giuliani, Prince, Trump Jr., Flynn and suspicious fake news sites to pressure Comey into “re-opening” the Clinton case baselessly—is *currently* under investigation by the FBI’s IG.
Abramson then interrupts his narrative to provide a link to an additional thread “detailing the latest well-sourced research on the Trumplandia Conspiracy.”

Continuing, Abramson provided additional observations, including the fact that: “The Trumplandia Conspiracy is a confirmed criminal conspiracy that’s documented and has been confessed to. It’s not a “theory” of something that *may* have happened derived from texts a fired FBI agent sent to his girlfriend—this is Trump aides confessing to misconduct.”
After some remarks discrediting the “Nunes Memo,” Abramson returns to his remarks regarding the “Trumplandia Conspiracy:”
- The Trumplandia Conspiracy is as far from tautological as can be imagined: it’s a simple, documented, confirmed series of events—backed up by video, audio, emails, and social media—that explains one of the great, otherwise-unexplained events in our history (the “Comey Memo”).
