So, we have two alleged scandals to investigate, one on the left, and one on the right.
On the right, we have the presumption that Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. How exactly did Russia interfere? With $50,000 worth of Facebook ads? With hacking DNC emails that prove that Hillary stole the DNC primary? Even if we can determine that Russia was behind the hacking, I consider that a public service. It revealed the truth, which the mainstream media is trying awful hard to keep secret.
So, Donald Trump, a man with no political power before he won the election, managed to arrange high level meetings with Russian officials, and keep all of this secret, right?
Well, certainly a novice like Trump would not be able to cover his tracks, right? And a full year of an independent counsel and the entire mainstream media would have uncovered something, right?
So, let’s see what we know:
Flynn talked to some foreigners, and lied about it to Mike Pence, and was fired.
Jeff Sessions met a Russian general as part of his job, and misunderstood a question asked by the Senate, and corrected the record. He was so worried about a conflict of interest that he recused himself from the investigation.
Paul Manafort had some questionable business dealings several YEARS before working on the campaign.
Don Jr. met with ONE Russian lawyer, who had worked for the DNC in the past, who misrepresented herself to get a meeting. His testimony before the Independent Counsel lasted longer than the meeting itself, by a factor of ten, I think.
So, where is the collusion? Where is the smoking gun?
OK, on the Democrat side:
Hillary and the DNC paid Fusion GPS, through third parties, to get opposition research on Trump, as did some GOP candidates, at least until he won the primary. THEN, Hillary paid Fusion GPS to create a FAKE dossier on Trump.
Fusion GPS hired a British former spy to write this dossier, who hired Russian spies to help write it.
The DNC shopped this dossier around DC for months, but none of the media was willing to write about it, until Buzzfeed released it, and then they had cover. Sleazy, but still not so bad.
THEN, the FBI used this fake dossier, that everyone knew was fake, to lie to a FISA judge to get a wiretap order against Trump and his campaign.
THEN, the Obama Administration used these wiretapped conversations, unmasking the American citizens taped talking to foreigners, and released the transcripts to the media, which is how we know about Michael Flynn in the first place!
On top of which, senior leadership in the FBI who were strong Hillary supporters and anti-Trumpers, were not only involved in the Clinton email investigation (and derailed it) but are also involved in the Russian probe!
NOW, five months of texts between two or more of these FBI officials magically disappeared, only to magically reappear again. Just like Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats, the hard drives and the files and the emails that could incriminate them magically disappear, in violation of every law regarding safeguarding government communications.
That’s all just off the top of my head, of course there is plenty more.
Can any of you, with a straight face, tell me we shouldn’t be getting to the bottom of this?
