FBI Official Jonathan Moffa’s Testimony Raises New Questions about Surveillance of Trump Campaign nationalreview.com/2019/05/fbi-of…
National Review has obtained a copy of FBI Official Jonathan Moffa testimony, who is in charge of the Russia Probe. The transcript reveals that the FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources & other counterintel assets was far more extensive than has previously been acknowledged.
Moffa was asked about August 2016 text messages between Moffa & FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was putting together a meeting to discuss the initial organization of the investigation. Even at that early date, Strzok specified that they needed to discuss the use of “CHS” & “liaison.”
When asked whether Christopher Steele was a CHS, Moffa went off the record to confer with his bureau-provided counsel, Robert Sinton. When they came back on the record, Moffa answered the question: “Yes.”
When asked in the closed-door Capitol Hill interview, “How many CHSs did you have working on this investigation at the time?” Moffa again conferred with his counsel off the record.

"I legitimately can’t tell you the overall number that are engaged. I just don’t know it.”
When asked about Liasons, Moffa said it would have been a person “with either a foreign partner or it could be a USIC partner as well. By USIC, that means another US Intel agency partner, or even the CIA.
That means from the earliest days of the Russia–Trump investigation the FBI was enlisting not only Confidential Human Sources — and possibly more of them — but also the aid of outside intelligence agencies, whether U.S., foreign, or both.
