What REALLY happened

The smoke clears, the dust settles, the fog lifts.

In sum, we have endured a two-year ordeal in which the president of the United States was forced to govern under a cloud of suspicion — suspicion of being a traitor, of scheming with a foreign adversary to steal an election. This happened because the Obama administration — which opened the probe of the Trump campaign, and which opted to use foreign counterintelligence spying powers rather than give Trump a defensive briefing about suspected Russian infiltration of his campaign — methodically forced its suspicions about Trump into the public domain.

It is not just that FISA warrants were sought on the basis of the Steele dossier, an uncorroborated Clinton-campaign opposition-research screed that the Obama Justice Department and FBI well knew was being peddled to the media at the same time. There was a patently premeditated stream of intelligence leaks depicting a corrupt Trump-Russia arrangement.

After Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, Obama, after doing virtually nothing about Russian aggression for most of eight years, suddenly made a show of issuing sanctions, seizing Russian assets, and expelling Russian operatives. He then rushed the completion of an intelligence assessment that would ordinarily have taken months to complete, so that it would be issued on his watch; and presto: The public was told not only that Russia interfered in the campaign, but that Russia did so because Putin was trying to get Trump elected. (Of course, the public was not told that Obama had known what Russia was doing during the campaign, but concluded it was too trivial to warrant a response; and the public was not reminded that, just days before the election — when Russia’s perfidy was well known to the Obama administration — both Obama and Hillary Clinton chastised Trump for daring to suggest that an American presidential election could be rigged.)

The intelligence assessment provided Obama’s intelligence agencies with a pretext to brief President-elect Trump on the Steele dossier. That, in turn, gave the media — previously skittish about the dossier’s sensational, unverified allegations — exactly the news hook they needed to publish it. Weeks later, as the FBI continued relying on the unverified Steele dossier in FISA-warrant applications, the FBI director, in public testimony, not only disclosed the existence of a classified counterintelligence investigation but gratuitously added that Trump’s campaign was a subject of the probe and that an assessment would be made of whether any crimes were committed — signaling to the world that Trump was a suspect in what would be, if proved, one of the most heinous crimes in American history. Then, finally, more leaks to the media triggered the appointment of a special counsel in the absence of actual evidence that the president had committed a crime.

You want disclosure? Me too. But let’s see all of it. Not just Mueller’s report. Let’s see everything: all of the memoranda relevant to the opening of the investigation, all of the testimony at closed hearings, all of the FISA-warrant applications, all of Rosenstein’s scope memo.

If we’re going to have accountability, let’s have complete accountability.

Damned skippy. Full disclosure would make a damned fine kickoff for a thorough investigation of the investigators, and bring the Deep State malefactors—ALL of them, to include the Clintons, Obama, Lynch, the FBI/DoJ, Enemedia, the whole filthy, corrupt lot—face to face with real justice at last. T’is a dream I have; I surely don’t expect it to happen. But that’s the one and only thing that might stand a chance of recreating—not restoring, it’s way too late for that—Americans’ faith in their broken, dysfunctional, entirely corrupt government.

Update! From Surber’s lips to God’s ears:

Mueller cleared President Trump.

Now it is Obama’s turn to face the music.

We can start by squeezing the little finks like Lisa Page and Peter Strzok until they squeal, and then go up the ladder — Susan Rice, Jimmy Clapper, John Brennan — until we finally get Mister Big.

And afterward, President Trump can file a RICO lawsuit against the Clintons, the Obamas and the DNC. Bankrupt them.

They tried to fundamentally transform America into a banana republic without the bananas. There is a price to pay for such ambitions that we must extract for the sake of the Republic.

There ought to be, yeah. To quote Captain Picard: make it so. I’m with Robert:

Now, it’s time to train the full weight of investigation and prosecution on those who perpetrated this fraud. Most of them should die in prison. The mainstream media organs that parroted the lies and ignored the truth should all go out of business. There are many lessons to be learned from this travesty, but here’s one of the most important:

The mainstream media is completely biased, compromised, corrupt, and aligned with the most nefarious elements of the US government. Ignore it, and do all you can to counter its disinformation and influence. Support the Alternative Media!

Gibbets and crows, baby. Gibbets and crows.
