As evidence grows of actual collusion and possible illegal pay-for-play ties between Hillary Clinton, her closest political allies and Russian officials, the former secretary of state and presidential candidate declares on C-Span “it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone.” She called the stories “debunked.”
O, irony. Her Herness says this, while all along they’ve been pushing an entirely fraudulent witch-hunt against Trump and his supposed “collusion” for a year now, WITH ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER THAT IT EVER HAPPENED, OR THAT EVEN ONE FUCKING VOTE WAS CHANGED BECAUSE OF WHATEVER “CRIME” THEY’RE MAKING UP OUT OF WHOLE CLOTH.
The sudden re-emergence of the Clinton-Russia nexus — we reported on it last year — is mostly thanks to reports in The Hill and The Daily Caller last week showing that the FBI and Justice Department had found evidence that Russia had bribed a U.S. uranium trucking firm to further Moscow’s reach into the U.S. atomic energy industry.
It didn’t end there, however. As The Hill reported Tuesday, “They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.”
This is just one of a number of scandals that Hillary Clinton has embroiled herself in over the last few years. And the revelations just keep coming — turning what was initially claimed as minor contretemps into major commissions of crime. And yet, her response is always the same. Deny, call it “baloney,” until the painful truth emerges.
Heck, remember the Clinton email scandal? It’s not dead. Under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the State Department has processed some 32,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails but, The Daily Caller reports, has “released a small fraction of those.” There are still some 40,000 other pages to be “processed,” which could take years.
Rush expands on the theme, which is less about any real “collusion” than it is about manufacturing a soft coup, and was all along:
This dwarfs Watergate in ways that I can’t even categorize. This has so many players involved who knew that this was phony. But for the highest investigatory intelligence agency in the world to knowingly accept pure fiction and use it politically? See, it doesn’t surprise me. This is who Obama is! This is right out of Saul Alinsky and Rules for Radicals.
This is exactly how community organizing works. You populate these places with your fellow extremist radicals, and you turn ’em loose — and everything they touch ends up being corrupted. The CIA? The FBI? This story… I guarantee you, Jim Kallstrom, who ran the New York office of the FBI for years, this is gonna… It’s gonna combine to devastate him and infuriate him like you can’t believe. The FBI is sacred to people who have devoted their lives to it, it’s sacred in its mission, and to have this? This is not just a mistake. This is not somebody getting fooled.
This is not Comey and Robert Mueller being fooled by any of this. This was knowingly used to help deny a duly elected president his victory — and then after he was inaugurated, it was used for the express purpose of driving this duly elected president out of office, and it encompassed the United States Congress. It encompassed the office of the Director of National Intelligence run by James Clapper. It ensnared the CIA and the FBI — or rather, the FBI and the CIA used this to ensnare all of these different House and Senate investigating committees — and, of course, the Drive-By Media.
The country has spent the last year with Obama intelligence officials, the media, and Democratic leaders pushing a narrative of Trump collusion with Russia to steal an election that was supposed to be won by Hillary Clinton. A meeting between Trump officials and a Russian who falsely promised dirt on Hillary Clinton is the best evidence — by far — to support this narrative.
Yet here we have the realization that the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the FBI all worked wittingly or unwittingly with Russians to affect the results of the 2016 election. Far from just meeting with a Russian and not getting dirt on a political opponent, these groups wittingly or unwittingly paid Russian operatives for disinformation to harm Trump during the 2016 election and beyond.
Worse, these efforts perverted our justice system by forcing the attorney general to recuse himself for the crime of having attended meetings with Russian diplomats and spawning a massive, sprawling, limitless probe over Russia. These things are so much more damaging to the republic than a couple thousand dollars in ads on Facebook paid for by Russian trolls about a pipeline protest.
That would have to be the understatement of the fucking century. In fact, the entire administrative-state edifice and its most powerful bureaucracies—the core of an illegitimate government that now controls every aspect of our lives, and does so in direct contravention of our Founding documents and principles—now stand revealed as wholly-corrupt players of partisan politics, a stunning breach not only of law but of ethics and morality.
The regular and repeated breaking of the oath they all swore when they took office or were hired we’ll leave aside; if that sort of thing meant anything to them at all, they never would have done the things they’ve done. In fact, any honest or honorable person would never have agreed to work for such a repugnant tyranny in the first place. Viewed in light of all this, Hemingway’s bland “understatement” looks almost life-threateningly naive—indicating blasé, meek acceptance of a reality that of right ought to evoke killing rage.
And: is there more, you ask? You damned well know there is.
Is there any Progressivist fantasy not being clandestinely bankrolled by the Russians? Even one? But the real problem here isn’t the plain fact of Russian direction of our treasonous-Left blowhards and useful idiots; that’s an old, old story, if a grim one. No, the problem is that our own damned government, up to the very highest levels, is riddled with collaborationists and fellow-travelers working hand-in-glove with the Russians to undermine the legitimacy of our last election.
And if THAT doesn’t make you killing mad, you’re probably a Democrat Socialist yourself.
Update! Questions, questions.
The explosive report in the Washington Post goes a long way to explaining how the dossier was so widely spread among political reporters during the election. The Clinton camp must have passed it out like Halloween candy to its media handmaidens.
The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.
The finding also raises the possibility that the dossier is what led the Obama White House to snoop on members of Trump’s team, and leak the “unmasked” names to the anti-Trump media in a bid to help Clinton.
In short, we now have compelling evidence that the dossier was the largest and dirtiest dirty trick of the 2016 campaign. And Clinton, who has played the victim card ever since her loss, was behind it the whole time.
Lock. Her. Up.
Sordid update! A most useful (and link-rich) summary, for those of you keeping score at home.
So what do we have? We have a presidential candidate who, as Secretary of State, violated the Espionage Act in order to keep a private e-mail server for the purposes of soliciting bribes for her foundation, including facilitating the transfer of one-fifth of America’s uranium into Russian hands, away from the public’s view, while the FBI and Justice Department knew the Russians were trying to target her for an influence operation and, when they were able to break up the spy ring doing the work to move it forward, she set up a hasty exchange to get them out of the country. Meanwhile DOJ was busy covering up the bribery scandal surrounding the uranium sale. And then, when it was time for that candidate to run for office her campaign and her party paid a sleazy, unethical oppo research firm which had been doing business with the Russians, while violating federal law requiring disclosure of Americans engaged in such commerce, to drum up a dossier full of falsehoods written by a former British spy using his contacts in Russia.
And that dossier was used to craft a narrative that the candidate’s opponent had colluded with the Russians to fix an election. To such an extent that a special prosecutor was demanded to investigate that opponent after he won the election – and the special prosecutor had been director of the FBI when the bribery scandal above was covered up.
Let’s not forget that while all this was going on, someone hacked the e-mails of the candidate’s party headquarters and her campaign consultant and deposited the proceeds to Wikileaks. The candidate blamed this on the Russians, while at the same time the party chair was employing a criminal Pakistani with ties to the ISI, that country’s intelligence service, as her IT consultant, and a subsequent investigation offers at least a suggestion it may well have been the Pakistani who was responsible for the e-mail heist seeing as though the technical signature of the leaked e-mails indicates they were downloaded at a speed which couldn’t have been had over the internet but rather on the server itself. The Pakistani may or may not be in the process of turning state’s evidence in order to save his skin from his other criminal misdeeds.
If the makers of House Of Cards had all this as the plot line of the next season of their show, audiences would not believe it. And yet this is what the Clintons have wrought on American politics and foreign policy.
Lock HER up? Hell, lock ’em ALL up.
