Obama knew! Bombshell new evidence implicates former president in "Russian collusion" hoax to depose duly elected Trump
Never has a case of such obvious sedition been ignored by so many people who ought to be concerned about it: Ranking federal law enforcement officials; the media; and members of Congress.
But because it happened to President Donald Trump, the traditional order of society and the application of our laws don’t apply, apparently.
For years since the Russian collusion investigation was clearly revealed to be every bit the “witch hunt” and grand hoax that President Trump said it was, many a wise political sage speculated that there was no way the FBI and U.S. intelligence agencies could have mounted a ‘counterintelligence’ operation against a political rival for the Oval Office without the current occupant knowing about it.
And it turns out they were right.
Big League Politics notes
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified intelligence on Tuesday indicating that the Obama administration knew the Russian collusion story was a campaign operation by the Hillary Clinton team but pursued the investigation anyway despite its obviously dubious nature.
[The] Ratcliffe letter indicates that former President Barack Obama was briefed by former CIA director John Brennan on the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”
Did you catch that, by the way? Yes, the name ‘Hillary Clinton’ was mentioned; and in the context that she
was the one who devised the Russian collusion hoax to begin with.
So hard to believe, isn’t it? This is literally Democrats doing what they have regularly accused the president of doing, which goes beyond simple projection and dishonesty.
Naturally, Democrats are claiming what they always do: That muh Russia
is behind it all.
“This is Russian disinformation,” Rachel Cohen, the spokeswoman for Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA), said in a tweet.
She believed the so-called Russian disinformation
was “laundered by the Director Of National Intelligence and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is extraordinary.”
So, basically, this statement is coming from Warner himself, who is the ranking member (as in, essentially, the co-chair) of the Senate Intelligence Committee, so we’re supposed to believe her
. Got it.
That said, Ratcliffe — a former federal prosecutor who, until Trump selected him to become DNI earlier this year was a U.S. congressman from Texas — anticipated the Democrat pushback in his letter.
“To be clear, this is not Russian disinformation and has not been assessed as such by the Intelligence Community. I’ll be briefing Congress on the sensitive sources and methods by which it was obtained in the coming days,” he wrote.
Ranking members of the Senate are taking the information seriously, mostly because they know it’s true
“This latest information provided by DNI Ratcliffe shows there may have been a double standard by the FBI regarding allegations against the Clinton campaign and Russia,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said.
Frankly, this is Sedition 101: A sitting president conspired with his former secretary of state and major party presidential contender, as well as his top intelligence and federal law enforcers, to plot a coup against a president, Trump.
It would rise to the level of treason if we were formally at war with another nation (which makes this a great time to push Congress to reassert its power to declare war instead of delegate it out to presidents who order troops into war zones at their whim, seemingly).
Then again, we were
at war — in Afghanistan and Syria, to name just a few places.
These actions should never go unpunished. But alas, we’re betting they probably will because Queen Hillary and King Obama are ‘too high up there’ on the food chain to warrant the kind of legal actions reserved only for underlings (and Republican presidents named ‘Donald Trump’) in our two-tiered system of justice.
