“And now U.S. Attorney John Durham will sort out exactly what happened, we can only hope. “
If those who perpetrated the attempted Trump coup[good to see someone is using accurate terminology] are to be brought to justice, in a system of law of they must first be investigated and the evidence established. Attorney General William Barr has taken that first step. There are no guarantees, as any number of skeptics including SLL will point out, but that necessary first step has been taken. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Attorney General William Barr has appointed US Attorney John H. Durham of Connecticut to examine the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation to determine if the FBI’s spying on the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate,” according to Fox News.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has written a 448-page fictional novel, grounded in treason, about the British/Obama Administration intelligence hoax known as Russiagate. It is intended to preoccupy your mind for the next two years, at least through the 2020 elections.
It is intended to stir your passions to support your absolutely mad Representative or Senator in enacting further sanctions and supporting the British drive to overthrow Putin’s government in Russia based on fictional events which, for the most part, never happened.
The British sponsored and oriented intelligence services that sponsored this hoax have also started a campaign to ensure that the same mad passions will destroy Donald Trump’s quest for new and peaceful relationships with China.
Congressional investigations based on the “road map” provided by Robert Mueller are supposed to provide, on your taxpayer dollar, possible impeachment and, at the very least, opposition research for the 2020 Presidential campaign.
This would fulfill the British vow, openly set forth in the December 2018 House of Lords Report, “British Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order,” that Donald Trump must not have a second term.
But, most of all, it is intended to get you to doubt what is coming next. The President’s allies have promised an investigation of the investigators and a full accounting of how this sordid affair came to be.
As Conrad Black explains in the National Interest, what is now known is that“senior intelligence and FBI and Justice Department officials lied under oath to Congress, or lied to federal officials … in order to influence the result, and then reverse the result, of a presidential election.
In terms of subversion of the highest constitutional process, the selection of the president and vice president of the United States, this sort of activity, that Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, former attorney general Loretta Lynch and others appear to have engaged in, is the last stop before there are tanks on the White House lawn and military control of the media outlets.
Mueller, having failed to do anything to address the real crisis that threatened the country, failed altogether, and compounded his failure by his sadistic entrapment of General Michael Flynn, and hounding of Paul Manafort and others, far beyond what was necessary or excusable, in an effort to extort a false inculpation of the president.”
As most know by now, the first part of the Mueller report concludes that there was no collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s campaign to swing the election to Donald Trump. This conclusion occurred despite thousands upon thousands of hours of fake media claims, fed by British and American intelligence leaks, which made it an article of fanatical religious faith to many, that Donald Trump was a Putin dupe.
According to Mueller’s report, while the Russians tried endlessly to infiltrate and steer the Trump Campaign, they didn’t succeed. Undaunted, Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper appeared on television on April 18 to claim that Mueller found “passive collusion.”
That is not an unfair characterization of the McCarthyite premises of Mueller’s report. According to Mueller, investigation of an American Presidential campaign was justified because Trump refused to toe the British line on Putin and Russia.Here is how Mueller blithely reports it:“
On June 16, 2015 Donald J. Trump declared his intent to seek nomination as the Republican candidate for President. By early 2016, he distinguished himself among Republican candidates by speaking of closer ties with Russia, saying he would get along well with Russian President Vladimir Putin, questioning whether the NATO alliance was obsolete, and praising Putin as a ‘strong leader.’
The press reported that Russian political analysts and commentators perceived Trump as favorable to Russia.”Beginning in February 2016, the Report continues, the “press” began to report the connections of various campaign figures with Russia, namely, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and Carter Page.
According to Mueller’s report, Trump pursued WikiLeaks during the campaign regarding the timing of further releases of Clinton Campaign and State Department documents, he said that he doubted that the Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta, he falsely claimed that he had no business dealings in Russia, and the Campaign was involved in changing a plank in the Republican Party platform about providing lethal assistance to Ukraine.
Contrary to this lying account by Saint Mueller, we know that the “press” were being steered by a British intelligence originated propaganda campaign aimed at preventing any U.S. accommodation with Russia.See Barbara Boyd’s 3-Part Series on the British Role in Russiagate.
Now that we know that the President is not a traitor, can we move on to address the thousands of opioid deaths, adolescent and other suicides, flooded farmlands, and crumbling infrastructure which have been push
PHOENIX — The U.S. government plans on replacing barriers through 100 miles of the southern border in California and Arizona, including through a national monument and a wildlife refuge, according to documents and environmental advocates.The Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday again waived environmental and dozens of other laws to build more barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.Funding will come from the Defense Department following the emergency declaration that President Donald Trump signed this year after Congress refused to approve the amount of border wall funding he requested.Barriers will go up at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a vast park named after the unique cactus breed that decorates it, and Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, which is largely a designed wilderness home to 275 wildlife species. The government will also build new roads and lighting in those areas in Arizona.
