Opinion| Lawrence David| Keep alive the Russian collusion hoax at all costs… it’s all that the corrupt democrats, who turned our intelligence community into their personal dirty tricks campaign operation, have left before U.S. Attorney John Durham drops the sledgehammer of truth.
The appointment of a special counsel was a sham from the outset.
The alleged collusion between candidate Donald Trump and Russia was never substantiated. In fact, the dossier used by Team Obama as evidence to convince the FISA court to allow the surveillance of a political enemy, had been discredited as early as January 12, 2017.
Don’t take our word for it… Here’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s findings:
That was prior to the inauguration of incoming-President Trump. More importantly, that was four months prior to the appointment of the special counsel.
Significantly, no incriminating evidence linking then-President Trump to Russia was found during those four months of continued FBI investigations.
It can now be said with near certainty that the special counsel had been instituted to cover up a history of illegal surveillance by the Obama administration.
As long as the special counsel had an obstruction of justice charge handing over President Trump like the Sword of Damocles, and the opposition media ready to crucify him, the president was blocked from declassifying key documents that would have proved his innocence.
Trump couldn’t declassify anything lest the special counsel slap him with obstruction charges and the Marxist media burn him at the stake.
Beyond that, the special counsel proceeded authorizing FISA warrants based on the same false premise so that they could continue what can only be described as a witch hunt against the president, his family, and his associates.
As you read on keep in mind that Mueller’s team of handpicked hangmen brought no indictments for any substantive crimes related to Russian collusion, likely because they understood the scrutiny of a trial would expose the thin reed their case was built on as the product of an overactive imagination.
Robert Mueller’s recent op-ed attempts to justify the FBI ever opening the investigation…
Mueller: “By late 2016, the FBI had evidence that the Russians had signaled to a Trump campaign adviser that they could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to the Democratic candidate.”
That’s a level of conflation worthy of Adam Schiff…
As investigative journalist Aaron Mate wrote,
“The recently declassified FBI electronic communication (EC) that officially opened its Russia investigation, code-named Crossfire Hurricane, states that Downer had told the U.S. government that Papadopoulos had “suggested the Trump team had received some kind of suggestion from Russia that it could assist” the Trump campaign by anonymously releasing damaging, yet “unclear,” information about Clinton and President Obama. Not only was this tip vague, there was no evidence that the “some kind of suggestion” actually came from the Russian government or even a Russian national…
“… Speaking to the House Intelligence Committee, [former FBI deputy director Andrew] McCabe said the Papadopoulos-Mifsud tip was not considered evidence of a Russia connection.” (Go deep)
In the words of the FBI counterintelligence expert, Peter Strzok, there was no there, there.
But, protecting the Obama administration’s prior illegal surveillance continuing the Russia hoax became critical to the future legitimacy of the Democratic Party.
That explains why three days after Mueller’s piece was published, the top prosecutor on his team, Andrew Weissmann, published his own op-ed in the New York Times.
Weissmann effectively called for longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone to be brought “before a grand jury.” Stone was accused of being an intermediary between Russian hackers and WikiLeaks, something Mueller/Weissmann never proved but for which Stone was found guilty of lying about in a fixed trial.
Why the special counsel’s 22-month long investigation, led by Weissmann didn’t indict Stone is best explained this way;
There was no there, there and a deep dive during a trial during which, perhaps, just maybe, could expose the falsity behind the Russia hoax; that Russia and Wikileaks never consorted and might expose the possibility that the source of the DNC emails was a disenchanted DNC operative, S*** R***.
Those people who care to examine the evidence, as it becomes declassified, will see that the entire Mueller investigation was empowered only to prevent President Trump from maintaining his campaign promise:
“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt establishment with a new government, controlled by you, the American people.
“The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exists for only one reason, to protect and enrich itself.
“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election for those who control the levers of power in Washington.
“And for the global special interests they partner with, these people that don’t have your good in mind, our campaign represents a true existential threat…
