At least so says James Lewis over at American Thinker. Too big to post the whole piece, but here's the very strong start...
Friendship is a beautiful thing, and it's really good to know that Robert Mueller, Comey, Brennan, and Clapper have known each other for many years. They're loyal friends.
Mueller is a former top FBI dude, who helped to clear Bill Clinton after that impeachment mess, and like Mr. Comey, he did his very best. Clapper was the single most powerful man in the "intelligence" "community," a centralized directorate (as the Soviets used to call it), which was George W. Bush's principal response to 9/11/01.
Now don't get me wrong: I'm sure all these brave men (or persons, I should say) made great contributions to the safety and welfare of all of us. But here they are at the peak of their careers, each one of them, and Democrat candidate Hillary is suddenly exposed to the world with her email fiasco as SecState. Violating the very first rule of intelligence and statecraft, to protect your country's secrets. And she obviously sold secret and sensitive information to Clinton Foundation "donors" around the world, including old friend Vladimir Putin (who now owns 20 percent of U.S. uranium, or possibly more), the Muslim Brotherhood (friends of Huma), the Iranians (who sponsor half the terror attacks in the world), the Chinese (who want more of our secret high tech), and probably the French (who understand bribery and just wanted to get access to Hillary as POTUS).
We've seen how Bill sold U.S. rocket-launching secrets to the Chinese for campaign money...or personal money. It's so hard to tell the difference.
Notice well that nobody claims that the Hillary dumps were false. They were true enough. That's why they hate Trump and his imaginary Russian sources. It's the truth that hurt Hillary.
So that's their problem. It's not that Hillary isn't a crook, as proven by an endless number of leaked sources, including her ridiculous email setup. This was arguably treason by the U.S. secretary of state in a time of war – a war that the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas refused to name, because that might kick in the constitutional provisions for declaring war and living with the reality of treason.
So Trump catches wind of that swamp stink and fires Comey, Clapper, and Brennan. Comey then plants a bomb in the media alleging that Trump had Moscow ladies of the night peeing on Obama's bed.
That's what set off this whole witch hunt, and Oliver Cromwell would have been ashamed of these goofballs. When the English witch-hunters went after suspects, waterboarding was the least of their methods of interrogation."
...And yet more evidence of treason and about 20 other felonies....
"Dossier author was in contact with Obama Justice Department
It's been 10 months since Washington learned that former British spy Christopher Steele, author of the so-called "Trump dossier," took the Hillary Clinton-funded opposition research document to the FBI, which considered sponsoring the anti-Trump work at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign. Now, congressional investigators have made what is perhaps an even more consequential discovery: Knowledge of the dossier project, during the campaign, extended into the highest levels of the Obama Justice Department.
The department's Bruce Ohr, a career official, served as associate deputy attorney general at the time of the campaign. That placed him just below the deputy attorney general, Sally Yates, who ran the day-to-day operations of the department. In 2016, Ohr's office was just steps away from Yates, who was later fired for defying President Trump's initial travel ban executive order and still later became a prominent anti-Trump voice upon leaving the Justice Department.
Unbeknownst to investigators until recently, Ohr knew Steele and had repeated contacts with Steele when Steele was working on the dossier. Ohr also met after the election with Glenn Simpson, head of Fusion GPS, the opposition research company that was paid by the Clinton campaign to compile the dossier.
Word that Ohr met with Steele and Simpson, first reported by Fox News' James Rosen and Jake Gibson, was news to some current officials in the Justice Department. Shortly after learning it, they demoted Ohr, taking away his associate deputy attorney general title and moving him full time to another position running the department's organized crime drug enforcement task forces.
The news also stunned some of those who had been investigating the matter. Yes, they knew that knowledge of the dossier extended to some officials in the FBI. That was bad enough; how could the FBI endorse and consider underwriting one campaign's dirt-digging operation in the middle of a hotly contested election? But now investigators know that nearly the highest levels of the Obama Justice Department were also aware of the dossier."
So essentially, everyone who mattered in Obama's government knew that the "dossier" was a completely bought and paid for hit job by Hillary, yet proceeded as though it were true and as if they did not know the source.
That anyone from the Obama-era still has a job is stunning.
"CBS News has obtained text messages that former Special Counsel investigator Peter Strzok sent to a senior FBI lawyer who was working with Robert Mueller's team; these texts resulted in Strzok's dismissal by Mueller and reassignment to FBI HR.
Timeline of texts from former Special Counsel investigator Peter Strzok may raise concerns about his impartiality and will likely raise more questions about the Clinton server investigation"
This is why even CBS felt the need to report actual news:
No matter what you do, you'll never ride away from you.
"Two FBI agents who were assigned to the special counsel on Russia, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, had texted each other during the 2016 campaign about protecting the country against Trump, according to reports.
One of them, Strzok, had also led the FBI’s Clinton email investigation, and watered down language that might have brought criminal charges for Hillary Clinton.
Strzok cryptically referred to a potential idea to thwart Trump’s election during a meeting in FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s office in August 2016.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote to Page.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” he added in the August 15, 2016 text.
Earlier that month, on August 6, Page had texted Strzok: “Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.”
First, it's obvious that what's happened is a stone's throw away from how the KGB operated: the police deciding who's fit to run the show, with all of the associated awfulness.
Second, if Trump was actually running the government, it's hard to image that this "investigation" would be allowed to move forward another inch. As that's not happening, you have to wonder who actually is running the show - the Peter Strzok's of the world?
"Trump team claims Russia investigator ‘unlawfully’ got emails
A lawyer for Donald Trump’s transition team has alleged special counsel Robert Mueller unlawfully received tens of thousands of emails, in the latest attack on the credibility of the probe into Russian meddling in the US election.
With the ex-FBI director’s investigation making inroads into the president’s inner circle in recent weeks, Republicans have cast doubt on its impartiality and pressed for a new independent prosecutor to investigate anti-Trump bias."
"Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of @realDonaldTrump! This could be WORSE than Watergate!" Paul tweeted Thursday morning."
Again, as Trump gains footing while Hillary threatens another run (something dems can ill afford), look for more "moderate" republicans (ie - democrats) to jump on the Hillary must fry! program.
That's not to actually punish Hillary of course, but rather to protect the party and Barry's "legacy". Problem for dems is that Hillary's as crazy as a shit house rat and would likely burn it all down around her....
That's the problem in hiring nut job power mad freaks. Who knew? Oh yeah, everyone else on the planet.
No matter what you do, you'll never ride away from you.
