The Democrats memo explaining the FISA process in the Russian collusion case has been rejected by the President. Citing national security, the President claimed the memo could not be released as is and needed to be re-written. Democrats were quick to call foul. Jim Hynes D, Ct. accused the President of hypocrisy. It is unclear when the document will be released to the public. jde 2/9/18
The above news blurb seems innocuous at first glance. It has facts, names, no conclusions. But it tells us nothing. That’s the point. If you think the denizens of the swamp on the Potomac want anymore info out there you may want to change the channel. The Russian collusion case is turning in ways the instigators of the probe didn’t count on. Instead of realizing the dream that the President of the United States is a traitor they find instead some of these villainous swamp creatures may actually be guilty of sedition.
The whole collusion fiasco hinges on a dossier put together by a former British spy. The dossier was explicitly created to embarrass and discredit Donald Trump. This dirty trick was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. The packet of alleged scandalous behavior by Trump found it’s way to the Justice Department and the FBI via Bruce Ohr, a high ranking official at the Department of Justice. He is married to Fusion GPS minion Nellie Ohr the originator of the document’s transfer to Justice. Fusion GPS was the firm hired by the DNC and Clinton campaign to put together and release the dossier. Nice. Dirty tricks are nothing new in politics. The dilemma is why was this smear brought before a FISA court ? FISA courts being kangaroo courts held in secret to spy on American citizens. I read somewhere that this is against the Constitution of the United States. But this is what happens when the government starts spying on itself. No one is safe. Not even the villains themselves. The reason for the hubbub is a nefarious DC creature named Carter Paige. He had some sticky dealings with the Russians which were on the FBI’s radar. They got a FISA warrant on Paige, Page spoke to someone in the Trump campaign, these people were swept up in the mass surveillance apparatus, thus we have a treasonous POTUS. Yet nobody seems to know what they were talking about. No matter, the government has a solution for such problems. A FISA warrant against the Trump campaign.
Adam Schiff, D Ca, the primary author of the Democrat’s memo explaining why this is all ok, the White House and a few of the exalted members of the People’s House are the only ones who know what is in the Democrat’s memo. Some how that is backwards. The citizenry knows next to nothing about a case that accuses the President of the United States of treason with counter charges of sedition landing at the feet of the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s Campaign. That sounds like a spy novel. Only the Federal Government has grown so decadent that it spies on itself with impunity, both political parties go to their corners and dig in with partisan hyperbolic nonsense and the people watch in real time on the boob tube; the unravelling of the Great Republic.
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes’ memo has all but been forgotten. That statement accused the FBI of malfeasance and hinted at a conspiracy by the Democrats to over throw a duly elected President. Presumably both sides on the House Intelligence Committee have looked at the same raw intelligence. How than do you get two polar opposite views ? The only thing I can come up with is that this whole Collusion drama is a smoke screen for things far worse happening now in the holes of DC.
