Russiagate – Exposed for the Bright, Shining Lie It Has Always Been

Opinion

Payback Revenge
Now that Trump has been exonerated, the story of how his accusers, using the power of the state, almost murdered a presidency with lies, propaganda and innuendo, needs to be brought out into the sunlight.

USA -(Ammoland.com)- “The Special Counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia … to influence the 2016 US presidential campaign.”

So stated Attorney General William Barr in his Sunday letter to Congress summarizing the principal findings of the Mueller report.

On the charge of collusion with Russia, not guilty on all counts.

After two years of hearing from haters in politics and the media that President Donald Trump was “Putin's poodle,” an agent of the Kremlin, guilty of treason, an illegitimate president who would leave the White House in handcuffs and end his days in prison, we learn the truth.

It was all a bright, shining lie.

Reeling from Trump's exoneration, big media are now scurrying to their fallback position: Mueller did not exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice.

But Mueller was not obstructed. No one impeded his labors.

As for Trump's rages against his investigation, they were the natural reaction of an innocent man falsely accused and facing disgrace and ruin for a crime he did not commit, indeed, a crime that had never been committed.

The House Judiciary Committee may try to replicate what Mueller did, and re-investigate obstruction. Fine. This would confirm what this whole rotten business has at root always been about: a scheme by the deep state and allied media to bring down another president.

The Mueller investigation employed 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents. It took two years. It issued 2,800 subpoenas. It executed 500 search warrants. It interviewed 500 witnesses. And it failed to indict a single member of Trump's campaign for collusion with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Which raises this question:

If Mueller could find no collusion, after an exhaustive two-year search, what was the compelling evidence that caused James Comey's FBI and Barack Obama's Department of Justice to believe that such collusion had occurred and to launch this investigation?

Sunday, after Barr's summary of the Mueller report became public, Trump aired his justified anger: “It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it's a shame that your president has had to go through this. … This was an illegal takedown that failed.”

Is there not truth in this?

Millions of Americans still believe what is now a manifest falsehood — that their president collaborated with Putin in cheating Hillary Clinton out of the presidency. The legal bills of Trump, his family, his campaign aides and his White House staff must be huge. Careers, reputations have been damaged.

The nation has been distracted and bitterly divided over this since Trump's first days in office. He has had a cloud over his presidency since he gave his inaugural address. Any ability the president had to fulfill his campaign pledge and negotiate with the largest country on earth, Russia, a superpower rival, has had to be put off.

Is it unfair to ask: Who did this to us?

Who led the Justice Department into believing Trump conspired with the Russians? Why did it take two years to discover there was no collusion? Who gave Putin and the GRU this victory by helping to tear our own country apart?

Our establishment is forever demanding apologies. Where are the apologies for the outrageous accusations that Trump was guilty of something next to treason? Sen. Joe McCarthy did not do a fraction of the damage to the reputations of Dean Acheson or George Marshall that the elite media have done, unjustly and maliciously, to the reputation of Donald Trump.

Years after French Artillery Capt. Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of colluding with the Germans in the late 19th century, and was sent to Devil's Island, evidence against another officer emerged.
Soon, it was Dreyfus' accusers who were in the dock of public opinion.

That needs to happen now. The instigators of this investigation, launched to bring down a president, have damaged and divided this nation, and they need to be exposed, as do their collaborators in the press.

The roots of Mueller's investigation go back to the Clinton campaign's hiring of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS hired ex-British spy Christopher Steele. He had sources in Russian intelligence who provided him with the contents of his infamous dossier. This was delivered to a grateful cabal at the FBI, which used it as the basis of a FISA court warrant to surveil the Trump campaign.

The dirt in the Steele dossier, much of it false, would be secretly shared with Trump-haters in the media to torpedo his candidacy; then, when Trump won, to destroy his presidency before it began.

Now that Trump has been exonerated, the story of how his accusers, using the power of the state, almost murdered a presidency with lies, propaganda and innuendo, needs to be brought out into the sunlight.

For democracy dies in darkness, and this can't happen again.

    1. Bar should appoint a democrat special prosecutor with directive to hire 16 republican prosecutors and investigate all aspects of the dossier and how the FISA warrants were initiated and any and all crimes found during the course of this directive, that is if Lady Justice is truly blind folded!

    2. The guy who could have stopped all of this was our last resident of the White House but he didn’t.
      The president receives a daily briefing of what is going on from the security people so he had to know or was this just some Chicago politics?
      We need answers.

      1. the kinyun not only didn’t he worked hard to make sure his hand-picked successor, with whom he’d made a deal, would replace him, the kinyun, that is, assuring a seamless transition to the ruling powers by then pretty well entrenched in the swamp.

        Don’t ever forget… he IS “the Organiser” from Chicago………. the same deep pockets that funded and directed him wanted to continue on in their positions of power. THEY are the ones madder than a huge nest of hornets just got a rock thrown through their paper nest.

    3. …….. and still …… NO ONE will go to prison, not the former PIMP in the WH, any of his administration, the Clintons, Comey, McCabe, Brenner, Clapper, Lynch …. and the list goes on. True justice in this country is DEAD. We are living in 1984. The left/communist/democRATS control the media, Hollywood, the newspapers. They are a CANCER to this country and NO ONE will be in prison, let alone hung for treason.
      The GOP is also to blame for being the passive, cowards they are! They had 2 frikkin years to turn this country around and have done NOTHING except throw us a few bones. They showed their TRUE color during the Kavanah hearing (forgot that one didn’t you) and the mid-terms when the democRATS used DEAD people and ILLEGAL aliens to vote. Hardly ANY GOP stood up and shouted the truth. Both parties are COMPLICIT in the ongoing destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

      As Ben Franklin is quoted as saying, “We have given you a Constitutional Republic. Now, if you can keep it.” well my friends, looks like we’ve lost it.

      1. @Mark R, a dire prediction. Fortunately, those investigations are still ongoing. If we the people clamor loud enough, maybe the current administration will not dare drop the ball.

    4. There are many who need to be under a microscope but one name, James Brennan, who gave his utterance much weight because of his National Security position. He made statements, said them as fact, when in fact they were lies. He needs to be grilled in the old fashioned sense. The Third Degree to find out what he knew and when he knew it. If, IF, and investigation is done maybe it will go back to the secret cabal that finances the radicals and put Obama in office. There is someone(s) somewhere who came up with this plan and financed it. It is a cancer and needs to be nuked.

      1. @Hoplite
        Brennan or Clapper wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them up side the head. Both are liers of the first degree and that is why Obumer hired them. The problem is that neither of them are smart enough to cover their lies.

    5. I predict Barr and Wray will not pursue the lies that started this whole mess. They don’t want the optics of being partisan, “pro Trump” or exacting payback on his behalf. The only route is through the Senate since the House has chosen to continue going down the false narrative path.
