– The usurpation of power by a silent coup, treason, mutiny, bribery, frauds, and thefts of public funds, and the cover-ups committed by the players in a criminal enterprise (RICO)
We, the people who elected President Trump intuitively understood that both sides of the political aisle inside The Beltway were self-dealing. Our elected were lining their own pockets with public funds and not acting in the best interest of the US. President Trump was no angel. He was unpresidential, was blunt, and was crude. The people knew what they were getting when they voted for Trump. Trump was hired to drain the swamp. Draining the swamp is akin to Jesus, overturning the tables of the money changers in the Temple.
As a career criminal investigator in a large Southern California city, my investigative curiosity first piqued after the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. We were led to believe by National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and then by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with the incredulous story that this attack was a spontaneous uprising caused by a little-viewed video critical of Islam. This battle went on for over eight hours, and the Secretary of State and POTUS were MIA. Four American patriots died as a result of no one taking any action. This attack came just weeks before the 2012 election. The government largely absolved itself from any failure in its after-action review of this attack. Were we lied to? Why?
FBI Director James Comey, in his summary, indicted Hillary Clinton for the use of her homebrew server at his press conference. Comey then egregiously concluded that there was no evidence of criminal intent required to prosecute by twisting and bastardizing the federal espionage criminal statute. Comey usurped what should have been AG Loretta Lynch’s decision to make. I knew the fix was in. FBI Director Comey lied to the people with a straight face. Why?
I watched with a very jaundiced eye over the last several years this kabuki theater. I investigated many elaborate criminal conspiracies, including public conflict of interest cases, as well as illicit nonprofits who were engaged in money laundering to divert funds into their pockets. Many were successively prosecuted either civilly or criminally. I wrote and served hundreds if not thousands of criminal search warrants. I have an undergraduate degree in political science (CSUF) and a graduate degree in administration (Univ of CA, Riverside).
Through my eyes as a shopworn gumshoe, I will explain what we are now seeing is an elaborate illusion. I will expose the attack on the US Constitution, the crimes committed, the cover-ups, and offer advice on prosecuting the perpetrators. Crooks will lie and can’t keep their lies straight. Their methods and behaviors are all the same, whether they are engaging in street crimes or complex white-collar financial schemes or cons. The only difference is when more money is involved, the perps are more adept in concealing, covering up their crimes, and hiding where the money went.
We are witnessing the usurpation power of the President as granted by the US Constitution by the Deep State. The President is elected every four years by the people to carry out their will. Elections have consequences. Shifts in public policy will occur. The members of the unelected in the executive branch serve at the pleasure of the President to carry out his/her policies. Our elite political class and the Deep State refuse to recognize this chain of command. As my friend and radio host, Rick Rydell is so fond of saying they need to be kicked to the curb.
The Deep State is pursuing an ideology that is counter to our framework of government as set forth in the Constitution. The Deep State and its princelings are and were stealing public funds entrusted to them. The Deep State now has the audacity of running President Trump, who sought to expose the corruption and insubordination, through the wringer, i.e., the Russian collusion illusion and the sham impeachment show in an attempt to cover up its collective crimes. As expressed by US Attorney William Barr in his address to the Federalist Society, reported by the NY Post, “Barr accuses liberal ‘resistance’ of trying to ‘sabotage’ Trump.”
A coup using an illegal usurpation of power, by treason, mutiny, bribery, frauds, and thefts of public funds, and cover-ups and obstruction of justice committed by a criminal enterprise as defined in Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
The attack on the US Constitution – the usurpation of and abuse of power by the Deep State
The New World Order (NWO) allied with the Deep State and the media are trying to subvert and undermine the will of the American People to nullify the results of the 2016 election. As reported by The Nation, the NWO is a conspiracy theory. This movement uses subterfuge and disinformation with the common goal of moving the US and other countries to Democratic socialism, an ideological and sometimes anarchist movement to change the fundamental structure of our government. Democratic socialism is nothing more than a rebranding of Globalism, Fascism, Nazism, and Communism. Unfortunately, because our educational system has embedded Leftists, it no longer teaches world history and American government objectively.
The Benghazi attack, in light of the recent information regarding the Department of State (DoS) and the lackluster performance of the FBI, warrants a new review with fresh and unbiased eyes. Hillary Clinton’s and President Obama’s hands are dripping with blood. Reliable sources tell me that Ambassador Thomas Pickering was picked to lead the DoS Accountability Review Board to ensure that the misdeeds of Secretary Clinton, and most likely, President Obama, never saw the light of day. See Sheryl Attkisson reporting, “Benghazi Accountability Review Board comes under renewed criticism.”
Were the DoS gun-running weapons initially supplied to Libya and then covertly redirected to questionable insurgents in Syria? These weapons were recovered by CIA operatives in Benghazi and then transshipped via Turkey to Syria. Andrew C. McCarthy makes a good case we were in his report in the National Review. Were we arming factions of ISIS? Were Hillary Clinton and President Obama providing aid and comfort to our enemy in time of war or otherwise authorized use of force? Was this treason? See this discussion for the elements of treason.
The President, as the chief foreign policy decision-maker under the Constitution, has the right to withhold foreign aid in the interest of the US and to send his own envoys to carry out his policy. Many former Presidents have done so before. As in the Ukrainian case, the Deep State was sandbagging President Trump’s policies for ideological reasons and or to hide corrupt activity. The Department of State (DoS) and its ambassadors are subordinate to the President. The authority and power of these unelected bureaucrats’ flow from the President. They serve at the pleasure of the President to carry out his/her policies. A useful guide for the President in setting foreign policy, The President’s Power in the Field of Foreign Relations (US DOJ).
As reported by the American Thinker, DoS is funding with USAID George Soros linked nongovernmental nonprofits (NGOs) in Ukraine and elsewhere. George Soros is frequently seen by conservatives as an evil puppet master and by the left as a benevolent benefactor. Soros has infiltrated and co-opted many like-minded Deep Staters embedded in the DoS. Soros funds many NGOs, including indirectly Antifa, as reported by the conservative think tank, Capital Research Center. Soros intentionally creates political chaos in countries to disrupt and destabilize them and in the process, to move them towards a Leftist ideology. Soros makes his money by betting against the Country’s currency as it falls.
Ambassador William Taylor, who testified before the House Intelligence Committee, was a member of the board of one of these Soros funded NGOs in Ukraine. From Ambassador Taylor’s testimony, he found President Trump’s use of Rudy Giuliani as his envoy to be irregular. Both Taylor and ex-ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, appeared aggrieved that President Trump did not seek their advice and assistance as if this were required. Allegedly Ambassador Yovanovitch went even further as reported by the American Thinker to interfere with Ukraine’s corruption investigation with a list of people “to keep hands off.” This list included Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
The Cons – Good old-fashioned frauds, thefts, graft and shakedowns by the resistance
From the published reports of the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s emails, it is quite clear the FBI lowballed this investigation. The outcome was preordained. There was never any real search for the truth. The FBI just went through the motions. The chance meeting of Bill Clinton and AG Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport was no coincidence. This meeting was no polite conversation about the grandkids. Bill Clinton was there to convey a specific message to Lynch that there would be no indictment of Hillary. This meeting took place only days before Comey’s press conference exonerating Hillary Clinton.
The mentality was that Hillary Clinton must win the 2016 Presidential election, or the dike holding back the truth would burst. If the truth were laid bare, it would expose the Obama Administration, the Senate and House, and many executive departments for their complicity in these abuses of power, corruption, frauds, and thefts of public funds, and fundamental violations of civil rights. In economic crime investigation, the old adage applies,” follow the money, honey.” In this case, this should include the illegal usurpation of political power.
High-level government officials and their operatives committed many serious felonies either in furtherance of or to conceal the crimes committed in a “pay to play” scam being run out of the Department of State by then-Secretary Hillary Clinton. In exchange for favorable consideration by Secretary Clinton, those who benefited would donate to the Clinton Foundation and affiliated nonprofits. The FBI started and stopped investigations into the Clinton Foundation at least twice as reported by the Washington Post. Peter Schweizer’s book, Clinton Cash, is more direct. The Clinton Foundation denied any improprieties. Denish D’Souza was not very complimentary of the Foundation in his article in the National Review. The Federalist had this to say.
The review of the Clinton Foundation by US Attorney John Huber fizzled out. A high pass of the chicken over a pot of boiling water and calling it chicken soup? Another case of lowballing? The water is maybe coming to a boil again, as reported by The Republic Post, “Clinton Foundation staffers have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence.” The Clinton Foundation and its affiliated nonprofits need a real investigation with an in-depth forensic audit to determine where the money went.
Illegal nonprofit schemes are difficult to prosecute without hard evidence and the testimony of insiders. The motive of why Hillary Clinton used the homebrew server was to conceal emails that would provide the hard evidence of her influence-peddling and other unlawful activity from exposure via FOIA requests. Hillary Clinton destroyed the data on her server and cell phones with the knowledge of the FBI and the DOJ. It took years for Judicial Watch and others to pry and recover some of these damning emails from the foot-dragging executive departments that more than likely were complicit and knew what was going on.
Illicit nonprofits usually keep multiple sets of books, and overhead expenses can be ginned up to divert money from the promised causes, money can be laundered under the guise of legitimate activity and so on by several methods. One sham charity I worked for homeless Desert Storm vets was collecting at least $10,000 daily in small change by ragged-looking solicitors. These solicitors with locked ammo collection boxes, card tables, and American flags were sitting in front of major free-standing stores in Southern California. Little of what was collected ever went to benefit any vets.
There is evidence emerging that Ukraine was rife with internal and external corruption, including members of the US government. As recently reported by The Federalist Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and others received over $10 million in payments from Ukrainian related activities. President Trump had every right to ask the new Ukrainian government for any evidence that US government officials, employees, and operatives were receiving money illegally. There are reports that $5 billion or more in US foreign aid to Ukraine has gone missing. Former Vice President Biden, his son, and their agents don’t get a bye from investigation just because Joe Biden is now a candidate for President. For more on this corruption and the testimony of Ambassador Taylor and George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. See Sheryl Attkisson reporting, “The Biden-Burisma part of the impeachment hearing.”
The cover-ups – perjury and the obstruction of justice
The term “collusion” bantered around is not a crime, no matter how many times the Deep State repeats it in talking points and then exaggerated by the media. In criminal law, the correct term is a conspiracy. A conspiracy is defined as two or more persons conspire together (Make plans) to commit a crime. The actual crime need not occur. All that must be proven is there was an agreement between the conspirators to commit a crime, and there was an overt act(s) done by one or more conspirators in furtherance of that crime. For example, a group of burglars decides to break into a business and blow a safe inside. Surveillance of the business done, diagrams made, and explosives are acquired, but the crime never completed. In the alleged Russian collusion, there was no evidence that a crime was attempted or completed to charge the crime of conspiracy, as the Mueller investigation concluded. Nor can there be an obstruction of justice where the President has the absolute power to act, i.e., the firing of FBI James Comey with or without cause. Mueller punted on deciding on whether to file charges of obstruction or not. AG Barr concluded that there was no factual basis to charge obstruction.
The abuses of power started as far back as the political targeting of conservative nonprofits by the IRS (Lois Lerner) and the bizarre ATF Fast and Furious operation that led to the death of a federal agent, and others. The IRS targeting of conservative nonprofits was buried by blaming Lois Lauer, who took the fall. The clock on the ATF Fast and Furious operation was allowed to run out even though former U.S. Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress.
The Deep State needed Hillary Clinton to win the election for President. Trump, the disruptor, was too dangerous to the establishment Republicans and Democrats and the Deep State. Hillary Clinton’s email case must be tanked so she could run. Comey and AG Lynch and those who were involved in the cover-up could be charged with obstruction of justice. AG Lynch, however, as a prosecutor, has immunity from being charged for failing to file charges under prosecutorial discretion. Yet, if there was more in play behind Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton, such as a promise of keeping her as AG in a Clinton Administration, then Lynch and Bill Clinton could both be charged for obstruction of justice. And additionally, Bill Clinton could be charged with offering a bribe to and Lynch for accepting a bribe to a public official.
There was no “there there” in the Russian collusion investigation. The silent coup by elected and high-ranking elected officials engaged in a disinformation campaign using the media as a willing participant. The Deep State twisted and contorted the meaning of the Constitution and existing law. The Russian collusion illusion has nothing to do with President Trump conspiring with the Russians to rig the 2016 election. The collusion narrative is a disinformation operation carried out by the Deep State to divert attention away from the actual crimes committed by the Deep State leading up to and after the 2016 election. First, to delegitimize Trump as the candidate for President and later to sabotage and undermined his presidency or to remove him from office.
What started as political opposition research on the Trump campaign by the Clinton campaign via a cut out with Fusion GPS was probably legal but was a campaign finance violation for concealing the source of funds. A search for dirt and dirty tricks is a political reality, i.e., the recording of Trump making obscene remarks to Billy Bush and Trump’s alleged affairs. The information in circulation from the DNC hack was probably fair game, too, unless the campaign did the hack or paid someone to do it.
Consider for a moment the DNC hack wasn’t a hack at all but a leak by a disgruntled DNC worker who had physical access to the server and copied the files to a thumb drive or similar. This thumb drive was then handled directly to a WikiLeaks operative. Julian Assange continues to deny he received the DNC files from the Russians. There is no doubt the Russians, the North Koreans, and the Chinese and other intel agencies were in Hillary Clinton’s homebrew server. And yet we were assured with high confidence by our intel agencies Russians operatives did the DNC hack.
The CIA was actively involved in this coup. The CIA likely spearheaded the retargeting of the FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. How convenient to blame the Russians for the DNC hack and tie it to the Russian collusion in the effort to blame Trump. There was likely forensic evidence that the Russians were in Hillary Clinton’s server, but were they the source of the leak of the DNC files? The forensic attribution of a hack with any degree of certainty is complicated at best. The NSA and the CIA have tools to spoof others to cover for their intrusions. Are CIA Director Brennan and DNI Director James Clapper being truthful with their attribution of the DNC hack to the Russians? They have both lied in testimony in Congressional Hearings — another ruse to cover their tracks and others regarding the abuse of power.
But sometime before the election, when a Trump candidacy became likely, this search for compromising information ran off the rails. This search morphed into a criminal conspiracy, as evidenced by the email exchanges by FBI Agent Peter Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page of the weaponization of the DoS, DOJ, FBI, CIA, and DNI et al. to spy illegally on a domestic political campaign.
My aha moment came in early 2016 when President Trump said his phones were tapped. Of course, the Deep State and the media immediately lambasted Trump. Over time, with the reporting of John Solomon, Sara Carter, Greg Jarrett, Andrew C. McCarthy, and others, the facts were exposed that the FBI obtained FISA surveillance warrants under the guise of a Russian counter-espionage investigation. A plethora of severe felonies and conspiracies were committed by the perpetrators to carry out this illegal domestic political spying. Foremost, being perjury and subsequent violations of the civil rights of US citizens under the color of law. Those who signed off on these FISA applications to the FISA court either lied directly or by omission as were those who illegally unmasked US Citizens under the guise of a counterintelligence operation which was retargeted to spy on a domestic political campaign. Former NSA Director Admiral Michel Rogers will go down in history as the true patriot who spilled the beans to President Trump that his phones were bugged.
General Michael Flynn was ensnared in their trap in the Mueller investigation. Mueller and his team put the squeeze on Flynn in the search for evidence on President Trump. The intel sources were monitoring the communications of the Russian Ambassador to the US. Flynn, as the new NSC Director, spoke with the Russian Ambassador by phone. Such contact is customary and not illegal. Flynn was ambushed in his White House office by FBI agents sent by Comey. Flynn was questioned about his phone call with the Ambassador. The FBI agents who already had transcripts of the intercepted call were there to catch him lying to federal agents. Can you remember what pair of pants you were wearing on Sunday two weeks ago?
The Mueller team then resurrected Flynn’s misstatements to charge him with lying to federal agents. The federal “mulligan “– a process crime when the real crime can’t be proven. Of course, if this went to trial, it would have been thrown out by the court. If it were known, the phone call was intercepted using methods not permitted in a criminal prosecution against a citizen; the call would be excluded. When one is facing defending against the full weight of the federal government, the defense costs can become overwhelming. Flynn fell on his sword and pled guilty to keep the Mueller team from going after his son.
This whole chain of actions was prosecutorial misconduct by most likely led by Andrew Wiseman, who has a history of pushing the envelope. Information obtained by counterintelligence operations depending on sources and methods, i.e., spying, and spycraft, will be excluded because of the violations of the 4th and 5th amendment rights of US citizens. In the case of FISA warrants, this information is allowed, so long as foreign intelligence-collection was a “significant purpose” of the FISA application at the time. However, if the FISA Court relied on an intentional or reckless misrepresentation by the government, the warrant could be quashed, and the information obtained ruled inadmissible. The FISA Court has warned the FBI before about FBI abuses in obtaining FISA warrants. Mueller, in 2002 when he was, the FBI Director was hauled before the FISA Court and specifically warned. I wouldn’t bet against Sidney Powell, the new defense attorney for Flynn is doing just this and ripping the DOJ and the FBI a new hole. I suspect when this is over and done, there will be a relook at the Patriot Act. Corrupt cops have tarnished a useful tool for law enforcement in counterterrorism.
The Federalist is now reporting the whistleblower who was the instigator of the impeachment show trial now underway previously plotted with the DNC during the 2016 election. This whistleblower was a CIA implant in the White House on the National Security Council (NSC). The whistleblower worked for VP Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan. According to Breitbart, the whistleblower pushed the Steele dossier. The Steele dossier was central to the Russian collusion illusion. Kerry Pickett reported that the whistleblower was close friends at the NSC with two people who are now on the staff of Rep. Schiff, who, as Chair of the House Intelligence Committee is presiding over these impeachment hearings.
The whistleblower first had contact with Rep. Adam Schiff’s staff before making his/her complaint with the Inspector General of the Intelligence Agencies. Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House on FOXNEWS, Ingraham Angle (11-19-19), said the whistleblower is no whistleblower but is a leaker. He/she was an embedded spy within President Trump’s inner circle. As a CIA officer, the agent ostensibly was assigned to the NSC to provide information and analysis to the President. Instead of acting in this advisory role, he/she was a spy who reported back to Director Brennan. I would be willing to bet Brennan was one of the coup leaders along with the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who were coordinating with Hillary Clinton and possibly President Obama and members of the White House to cover up their crimes.
The impeachment show trial is nothing more than a diversion tactic like the Russian collusion illusion. Coup perpetrators are twisting and bastardizing the meaning of the Constitution, the law, and past practice to mislead to divert the attention of the American people. This disinformation operation is echoed and amplified by selective leaks to the willing media outlets.
The impeachment hearings, as run by Rep Adam Schiff, were nothing more than a star chamber or kangaroo court. There was no search for the truth based on precedent in our judicial system that affords due process and presumption of innocence. Adam Schiff and the whistleblower have multiple serious conflicts of interest. These hearings were a show trial to confirm a preordained outcome. As in Star Trek-like, the Klingon system of justice where you were presumed guilty unless you can prove your innocence.
The one witness who outed this sham was Jonathan Turley. The great Victor Davis Hanson said, “If Nadler had any sense, he would simply fold his tent and stop the damage he is doing to House candidates in 2020.” Alan Dershowitz, a noted liberal constitutional law attorney, and Harvard Law Professor calls foul. Dershowitz said there isn’t any crime. This is a matter of policy carried out under the Constitutional power of the President, which can’t be criminalized.
Rep. Doug Collins (R) Ranking Member of the House Judiciary nailed it in his opening remarks. This impeachment hearing is a personal vendetta with the facts be dammed; a means to an end. There is no crime, only a presumption with no proof. The facts are made to fit the narrative.
Will Justice be Served? The RICO hammer may fall soon – Organized crime can’t exist without corrupt law enforcement.
My experience with RICO began when I moved to Spokane, WA, in 2006. I came late to the game. I helped retired Sheriff Tony Bamonte of Breaking Blue fame, and award-winning investigative reporters Tim Connor and Larry Shook into their investigation into the death of a woman in a parking garage. An older woman, Jo Ellen Savage, fell to her death from the 5th floor when her car broke through a concrete barrier of the River Park Square (RPS) parking garage. The Savage death was a good case to prosecute for manslaughter. Had a complete and thorough investigation been done, it would expose that these barrier walls were failing at a rate of three per year for ten years before Savage’s death. The owners knew about the failures but did nothing as they didn’t want to invest any more money into the garage. The owners were going to pass the garage and with its risks off to a public foundation created. The Savage death was covered up. Had the Savage death been investigated, it would expose the multiple frauds committed in the funding of the parking garage expansion. See more in Larry Shook’s book that was never published, The Girl From Hot Springs.
Spokane is a company town run by elite wealth-holders that either own or control a majority of the media outlets in the city. A much-touted renovation of buildings owned by the elite establishment into an indoor shopping mall was proposed that would boost the region’s economy. Tax-free municipal bonds tanked that were issued to expand the existing parking garage. These bonds failed because of the fraudulent activity of the players who included two local bond attorneys who were later to become in succession, the US Attorney for the Eastern District of WA. The political influence of the elite extended to Olympia and Washington, DC. Spokane taxpayers were left holding the bag on an $80 million loss – a robbery committed in broad daylight. The IRS never referred the case to the FBI or the DOJ for prosecution. The IRS did revoke the tax-free status of the municipal bonds, saying the “casino was rigged.” See the collective works of Tim Connor and Larry Shook in the Camas Magazine archive.
The Deep State coup while convoluted and complicated, but in simple terms, the crimes committed were done by a group of people either acting alone or in concert with others with a common purpose. They acted together in the usurpation of power, the abuse of power by public officials, bribery, thefts by fraud, which include federal funds, money laundering, perjury, the obstruction of justice, and aiding and abetting the commission of these crimes or to conceal these crimes. While perpetrators will come and go over time, the conspiracy AKA the coup is ongoing with an identifiable pattern of criminal or racketeering activity. This is organized crime or a criminal enterprise, as referred to in the RICO Act. A useful guide is “CRIMINAL RICO: 18 USC. §§1961-1968 A Manual For Federal Prosecutors.
RICO, while initially used to break up mob families, is also used to fight White-Collar criminal conspiracies. There is the same hierarchy of perps led by the top players who all linked together with a common purpose. RICO has prosecutorial tools to squeeze the low-level operatives to gather evidence to prosecute, jail, and seize assets of the top players. The crucial element to prove is there a pattern of criminal or racketeering activity. This pattern is shown by proving there were two predicate crimes committed by the group within ten years. The list of predicate crimes is extensive and includes both state and federal offenses. The maximin sentence for a single conviction is 20 years. The effect is to cut off the head of the organization. The typical five-year statute of limitations for most federal felonies is extended to ten years from the last criminal act or acts committed to conceal the conspiracy, i.e., lying under oath and similar actions to obstruct justice.
The criminal activity of the Deep State extends at least back to ATF’s Fast and Furious followed by the IRS – targeting of conservative nonprofits; the Benghazi attack – illegal gun-running and perhaps treason; the Clinton Foundation – pay to play scheme and money laundering. Rudy Giuliani previously said there was enough to pursue “Clinton Inc” as racketeering under RICO. More recently, the criminal activity includes the Russian collusion illusion – an elaborate ruse and disinformation operation to cover up the illegal acts of the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton, the DOJ, the FBI, the CIA and DNI, and the recent House impeachment show trial for the same reason.
Many of the same players are involved. While some of the players cannot be prosecuted because of the typical federal five-year statute of limitations, under RICO with its ten-year statute of limitations would ensnare them. A RICO chart or a link analysis is useful to show the connections between the players, the part they played as a principal in a crime, or how they aided and abetted in the commission, or help conceal the crime. A RICO chart is what Giuliani sarcastically referred to as his “insurance policy.”
The report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, according to leaks, will downplay the actions of the FBI in obtaining the FISA surveillance warrants. The report will find there was no political bias in seeking the FISA warrants, but there were many errors made. Horowitz’s powers are limited, and he does not have access to information on what the CIA and DNI were doing. AG Barr and US Attorney Durham do. They have badges, the power to impanel grand juries, indict, and arrest. While the media is already running stories in an attempt to “diminish” the Horowitz report, AG Barr is signaling he doesn’t agree with the key findings:
AG Barr told colleagues that he is not convinced by the evidence that Inspector General Michael Horowitz compiled, suggesting that the FBI’s investigation into alleged Russian collusion by the Trump campaign launched on reasonable foundations, according to the Washington Post.
IG Horowitz’s report was released confirming he found no political bias by the FBI in seeking the FISA warrants. US Attorney Durham issued a statement, “objects to IG findings on Russia probe origins in a stunning statement.” AG Barr issued a release disagreeing with the Horowitz report, “shows FBI launched Trump campaign investigation on the ‘thinnest of suspicions.” AG Barr followed up with this additional statement which is an inkling of where he and US Attorney Durham are going:
I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press,” Barr said.
“I think there were gross abuses… and inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI. I think that leaves open the possibility that there was bad faith.
A telltale sign that US Attorney General Barr is now playing hardball against the Deep State. Both AG Barr and US Attorney John Durham went on road trips to Great Britain and Italy and spoken with Australian officials. The DOJ is using RICO to investigate the death of Jeffrey Epstein, which may be connected with this conspiracy. Previously Epstein got a sweetheart deal and avoided prison time. Why? Perhaps Epstein was a snitch for the FBI, probably for the CIA or other intel agencies. A great “honey pot” to trap and compromise VIPs and foreign agents.
Final words – The house of cards is imploding as the truth emerges
The collective actions of the Deep State are and were a silent or soft coup to delegitimize a Presidential candidate and then once elected to impede and resist the duly elected President to cover up serious crimes.
As I wrote President Trump in March of this year:
. . . This never was a real counterintelligence operation, but used, then sensitive, Intel sources and methods as a pretext to retarget and to surveil a domestic political campaign by way of false FISA applications. I would also venture to say some of the information used in these FISA applications was laundered by the participants via sharing or searching for information using friendly foreign Intel services to make it appear legitimate and to shield the participants from exposure. . .
. . . The Clinton email investigation FBI Director Comey damn well knew this as well as others higher in the Obama Administration and that’s why Clinton couldn’t be prosecuted. This would have brought down the house and both sides of the aisle, including President Obama. So, we were sent down the Alice in Wonderland wormhole of the Russian collusion illusion for the last two years, to cover for the serious crimes committed by the participants.
This is a political war of ideologies and public policy between the President and the creatures of the Deep State. The Deep State doesn’t recognize that it is we the people who grant them the power to govern through executive powers of the President. President Trump did not violate any law. Trump is a disruptor and fighter. The people who voted for Trump were fully aware of who they were voting. The elite academics and the Deep State were “resisting” before and after the 2016 election to delegitimize Trump by first crying foul on the election, the Russian collusion, and now by impeachment show trial, which is nothing more than a kangaroo court. The outcome was preordained with no due process in a search for the truth. There was no finding of fact only presumption by hearsay testimony. The media was a willing participant with this coup. The reporting was highly partisan and not objective, which aided in pushing the narrative of the coup. The media allowed this disinformation campaign to continue by not holding members of the coup accountable for their lies, contorting, and bastardizing the intent of the founders, the Constitution, and the law to fit their purpose.
The elitist academics and the Deep State don’t like the way Trump combs his hair, his brashness, and his challenging tweets. Trump, as promised, is draining the swamp. Trump is changing the norm of how politics is done inside the Beltway. The Deep State is pushing back with everything it has in this silent coup to overthrow the Trump administration by the unprecedented political weaponization of the DoS, DOJ, FBI, and CIA. In so doing, there were flagrant civil rights violations of the 4th and 5th Amendments under the color of law of US citizens under the guise of a counterintelligence operation to spy on a domestic political campaign.
The founders were prescience in their understanding of the motives and vices of people by creating the three co-equal but separate branches of government. This separation of powers has worked well over two hundred years, but there has been an erosion of the power of the President by the unelected Deep State. The President must stand for election every four years, unlike parliamentary governments, and the people can change course by electing a new President. Elections have consequences, and public policy will change. The Deep State has no power without the power given to the President by the people.
What is unique in this coup is the law enforcement arm of the President went rouge. The Deep State corrupted the DOJ, FBI, and the CIA at the highest levels. Organized crime can’t exist without corrupt law enforcement.
As I wrote the President:
Mr. President, I believe you understand the gravity of the situation and of its importance to the very survival of our country as we know it. If the people involved are not held accountable for their actions, we will be no different than some Third World Banana Republic. Failure to act will destroy our founding principle of the Rule of Law as stated by President John Adams, “We Are a Nation of Laws, Not of Men” and we cannot allow a two-tiered justice system to prevail.
