With President Trump
ordering intelligence entities in every agency and department to fully cooperate
with Attorney General Barr – and for Barr to declassify all relevant
documentation regarding any clandestine information gathering and surveillance
of politicos pursuant to law during the 2018 General Election, we have to ask
some serious questions whose answers must transcend politics.
How is what the Obama Era
FBI and DoJ executed during the 2018 Election – the illegal gathering of
information against Americans for political purposes – any different than the
crimes committed during Watergate; an event that brought down a presidency?
The illegal activities
executed during Watergate included the bugging of the offices of political
opponents and people of whom then-President Nixon and members of his inner-circle
were suspicious. They illegally used the FBI, CIA, and IRS as political weapons.
Evidence is pointing to
proof that during the 2018 General Election a select handful of Obama and
Clinton loyalists (read: Progressive-Fascists) abused the intelligence and legal
apparatuses to both manufacture false information and use it to fraudulently acquire
FISA warrants to affect a political outcome.
Both of these events are
crimes. Both of these events have to do with illegally using government law
enforcement, judicial, intelligence, and information gathering agencies and/or
departments to gather information to favor a political person or movement; to
illegally affect the outcome of an election.
In 1974, Democrats
screamed about the disenfranchisement of the American people in the electoral
process by nefarious forces in the Nixon Administration – and the President
himself – and burned the question “What did the President know and when did he
know it?” into American History.
Today, in the ominous
shadow of a crime equal to or greater than those committed during Watergate,
Democrats are not only seeking to overlook crimes; they are seeking to validate
the attempted disenfranchisement of the American people. In any other matter
that would reach a court in the United States, their actions would be
tantamount to aiding and abetting a federal crime.
Again, Democrats have done
zero governing since President Trump was elected. Everything they have done has
been for the benefit of their political party.
It’s time to put
government before politics. It is also time to punish those who do not.
