The Estonian Fox

July 5, 2016. On that date, James Comey held harmless all of the actions of our favorite non-convicted felon (that would be Mrs. Clinton). Yet the Republicans did nothing to charge her. Remember, they held the House, Senate & Presidency from January 2017 to January 2019. And the Press did nothing of substance on that subject either. And the lawyers in the DOJ did nothing. I thought this country had a Rule of Law.

All of this was before the attempted sedition against President Trump. Does no one care? If Deus won't save us, I'll settle for a machina. Someone. Anyone.

Thanks for the article George.

Lack of curiosity into the origins of the Steele Dossier(s) has chapped my hide. Add Mueller’s Investigation and the press to the list of players involved who displayed an astonishing lack of curiosity of the senior officials involved in the Collusion Delusion and I now have a bad case of road rash. What ails the press?

In a related article, with emphasis on last paragraph.

“Was Specious Info Leaked to Justify the Absence of Trump-Kremlin Links?”

“In the absence of evidence tying the Trump campaign to the Kremlin – and a preponderance of leads involving key figures actually tied to the West – U.S. intelligence officials helped cast a pall of suspicion through misleading, and sometimes false, media leaks. In January 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed President-elect Trump on the Steele Dossier's most explosive allegation: that the Russians had a tape of him with prostitutes in a Moscow Ritz-Carlton hotel room. Comey's briefing to Trump was leaked to the press, leading to the dossier's publication by BuzzFeed and cementing the story the atop the news cycle for the more than two years since.

Less than two weeks after the dossier's publication, someone from U.S. intelligence leaked classified details of an intercepted phone call between Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The leak fueled baseless speculation that Flynn and Kislyak had discussed sanctions relief in exchange for Russia's help in the 2016 election, and ultimately led to Flynn's resignation. Weeks later, the New York Times reported that the U.S. investigators had obtained "phone records and intercepted calls" showing that members of Trump's campaign and other associates "had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election." Four months later, Comey testified that the story was "not true." The Times has never retracted it.

“Nunes also tried to question Mueller about U.S. government leaks, asking if he agreed that the leak of a phone call involving Flynn, the then-national security adviser, was a "major scandal." Mueller responded: "I can’t adopt that hypothesis."

“Mueller could very well have a plausible explanation for his inability to account for the investigation's core flaws. Or, as his awkward testimony suggested, perhaps he was not the hard-nosed investigator that the media portrayed him to be, but instead a figurehead who did not make the key decisions in the office of the Special Counsel.

“What is clear is that neither his report nor testimony provide the answer. After determining that there never was a Trump-Russia conspiracy, Mueller showed no interest in investigating why so many high-placed officials said they believed there had been. His report told us what didn’t happen during the 2016 election, but shed little light on what did happen, and why.”

There might be hope for our Republic yet.

“Solomon recently filed his own motion to publicize FISA records. Solomon has reason to suspect that the court knows of serious misconduct by multiple government attorneys appearing before it. If the government can lie without consequence to a court charged with supervising the FBI’s surveillance of Americans, that operates as a de facto repeal of the constitutional amendment prohibiting warrantless search and seizure. We have reason to hope for Solomon’s success.”
