Senator Ron Johnson raised eyebrows throughout Washington Tuesday night, telling reporters the GOP legislator has an informant inside the FBI who confirmed the existence of an anti-Trump ‘secret society’ at the Department of Justice.
Johnson was speaking with Fox News when he made the bombshell revelation, telling viewers that a group of individuals at the DOJ met “off-site” to derail President Trump’s agenda within days of his inauguration.

“What this is all about is further evidence of corruption -more than bias- at the highest levels of the FBI,” said Sen. Johnson. “And the secret society? We have an informant that’s talking about a group that was holding secret meetings off-site. There’s so much smoke here, so much suspicion.”
“We need to dig into this. This is not a distraction,” he added. “Again, this is bias and potentially corruption at the highest levels of the FBI that’s now being investigated. And by the way, Robert Mueller used to run the FBI. He’s in no position to do an investigation over this kind of misconduct.”
“At this point in time, we should be looking at a special counsel to undertake this investigation but Congress is going to have to continue to dig,” said the Senator.
