For my last post of the year, it was a dilemma. Should I write about Hillary? She was supposed to be off stage in nowhere but she crashed into 2017 and squatted like Occupy Wall St and won’t leave, even when her supporters tire of her.
Should it be about Obama? He was supposed to be out of office yet resurfaces every time there is any blame to hand out. so he can attack Trump. I guess he did evolve from blaming Bush to blaming Trump. He’s like a terrible movie with a lousy ending. Plus we have the ghost of Obama and shadowy operations popping up everywhere.
Speaking of never ending, I could do something about Nancy Pelosi since there is endless material. She also refuses to get out even when the base demands new leaders. The left can find all kinds of reasons to terminate babies but can’t get rid of old leaders. They want to “flip states” but not leaders.
Well, then there is Trump who the left is trying everything they can to get off the stage. So the guys who can’t get their decades-old people out suddenly can’t stomach a new guy on the block who rocks their world.
Or maybe I could follow NYT lead who, for the last days of the year, did a story about George Papadopoulos. A story of a drunk popping off his mouth about Russia having Clinton emails. (which they probably couldn’t have had if she didn’t have a private server). By telling someone, it was relayed to intelligence a few months later, which started the investigation on Trump. Of course this was based on credible but anonymous sources. (wink-nod) When FBI or Mueller wants a story out, it gets out. But when Congress wants information from FBI, we get stonewalled and can’t get it.
What is wrong with that story? Start with the reason for it is to create a justification for the investigation in the first place. To divert from the dirty dossier. In turn, that should tell us where it came from and why. This is an attempt to substantiate this whole investigation. I know, blame it on the 3rd rate dunk guy, one who lied to the FBI. So the FBI fell for the old drunk guy in a bar routine. Yeah, ‘A justifying we will go!’
Others believed that the possibility of a compromised presidential campaign was so serious that it warranted the most thorough, aggressive tactics. Even if the odds against a Trump presidency were long, these agents argued, it was prudent to take every precaution.
That included questioning Christopher Steele, the former British spy who was compiling the dossier alleging a far-ranging Russian conspiracy to elect Mr. Trump. A team of F.B.I. agents traveled to Europe to interview Mr. Steele in early October 2016. Mr. Steele had shown some of his findings to an F.B.I. agent in Rome three months earlier, but that information was not part of the justification to start an counterintelligence inquiry, American officials said.
Ultimately, the F.B.I. and Justice Department decided to keep the investigation quiet, a decision that Democrats in particular have criticized. And agents did not interview Mr. Papadopoulos until late January.
They are desperate now — the closer we all look — to justify how this investigation came about and on what grounds. They certainly don’t want it justified on a dirty dossier from Russians by a campaign op-research, paid for by the DNC and campaign, while collaborating with the FBI and intelligence. The article tells us it isn’t. (whether they meant to or not) Until we find out later it was.
Last week they talked about McCain’s associate who brought the dossier back to give it to the FBI. But they had to admit the FBI already had that information in installments as Steele composed it. Oh, but now a drunk guy in a bar is the one who sparked the whole investigation. Right. To top it off, how many times already have we either been lied to or deceived? I lost count.
Well, we don’t have to believe it. This is only their latest explanation for an ill-conceived investigation that is way out of control, and likely based on political motives.
So finish off the year the way they started it, with the BS meter pegged to the max. Funny they are finally getting around to justifying this witch hunt — or desperately trying to. About a year late in even attempting that.
Happy New Years to an MSM that should be ashamed of themselves!
