The ambiguity is purposeful. And to be honest, I really didn’t give this much thought until I witnessed how the Democrat political class and their media went after and indicted Scooter Libby, former advisor to Vice -President Dick Cheney. It was thirteen years ago, and I still can’t figure out what on God’s green earth, he was convicted of. It supposedly surrounded the leaking of the “well-known” identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Of course, in retrospect, the bogus conviction of Libby was little more than a surrogate attack on than Vice President Dick Cheney and the on-going discord over the War in Iraq. We now know (as many of Libby’s accusers knew then) that it was Richard Armitage, former Deputy Secretary of State, who first leaked the information about Ms. Plame. Libby was acceptable collateral damage, similar to what is currently happening to General Michael Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Advisor. Needless to say, political-theatre encapsulating General Flynn, kicked-off the three-year Russian Collusion lie. The true target by the out-going Obama led DOJ was never Flynn, but Donald J. Trump, for the unpardonable sin of winning the 2016 Presidential Election.
Thankfully, the charges against General Flynn were repudiated. Nevertheless, the Obama Justice Department was able to bankrupt the General, take his home, and threatened his son with jail time.
As we are now discovering, with little or no help from the compromised Democrat-centric media, Obama, in conjunction with James Comey, former Director of the FBI, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, James Clapper, National Intelligence Director, Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security Advisor, along with CIA Director John Brennan, initiated the first deliberate undermining of what in our nation’ history had been the peaceful transition of power from one administration to the next. Of course, the plot, or soft coup d’etat to remove Donald J. Trump for being some kind of Putin-Russian agent or Manchurian candidate, had Hillary Clinton’, (The Patron Saint of Unindicted Co-Conspirators and Lost Emails) fingerprints all over it.
In reference to the former First Lady, one must come to accept that hell will freeze over before she is ever convicted or held responsible for anything. The same is true for our first Black President. Barrack Hussein Obama was the most surreptitious, albeit, elegantly sneaky individual since Nixon to ever reside in the White House. But I have to give him credit. Obama was a master at leveraging the “soft-bigotry-of-low-expectations” to his advantage. He was simply never held to the same standards and/or volume of criticism as Trump or any other Republican President. With the dismissal of all charges against General Flynn, it has become increasingly clear, that it was all orchestrated by Obama and higher-ups at the FBI, the CIA, and Susan Rice, just to name a few. You can also rest assured that nothing will point back directly to Obama and his intrinsically smooth criminal comportment. Nobody will be held responsible nor suffer the indignity of a predawn raid by law enforcement tactical units, like Roger Stone or Paul Manafort for dubious white-collar crimes. In the case of Manafort, he was convicted of crimes, that had nothing to do with Trump’s so-called collusion with Russia to fix the 2016 election. Only Republicans, or anyone supporting the current President, will suffer the full Al Capone treatment.
Sidebar: The ongoing dust-up over Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Diana Feinstein (D-CA) over dumping stocks in their portfolios, after receiving heads-up about COVID-19 is already shaping-up to build a possible indictment against the Republican Senator; while Ms. Feinstein’ insider trading activities, will be downplayed. Regrettably, politicians from all sides of the political aisle have engaged in such insider trading info for decades. However, the average citizen would be looking at some serious jail-time for contracting in such activity. Back in the early 1990s, Hillary Clinton’s famous cattle- futures-bonanza was an obvious pay-off to her, under the guise of Clinton being some sort of stock futures genius. She and her husband, back in their Arkansas days, were able to parley a $1000 dollar futures trade into a $100,000 profit. For anyone with even a cursory understanding of the futures market, this type of return on investment is basically impossible. But true to form, the First Lady and the former President, with the help from a fawning media, were never pressed on the issue.
An Easy Bet…….Regrettably
I will make you a bet! No one, who was a participant in this four-year hoax to impeach or otherwise undermine the results of the 2016 Presidential Election, will suffer any real consequences. Going to jail is certainly off the table. Clapper, Brennan, Strzok, Comey, and others will probably get away scot-free. Despite all of the real evidence of political maleficence being collected by John Durham, the career Justice Department Lawyer commissioned to look into the origins of the Russian Collusion fabrication, the DOJ’s Report outlining bound face lying by Comey and others, the abuse of the FISA courts to fabricate the Stasi-like Russian Collusion narrative, none of this will add up to a hill-of-beans. The collection of bad political operatives from the Obama White House, along with crooked cops like Comey and Strzok, will simply skate.
Over the next few months, Congress will convene another of its feckless Hearings, which will presumably launch a thorough investigation of the conspiracy/origins to undermine the Trump Presidency. But after all the testimonies are done, and the government information reviewed and collated, the information will be assigned to the burial ground of government documents. As a former Government Documents Librarian, it was my experience that, if you wanted to bury or make any information less robust for public consumption, or just hide something in plain sight, the government information library, archives, or digital tomb[i] will serve that purpose.
Obama, and all the members of his Trump-Hating All-star Team, know that after all the crowing and ‘real facts” about how a group of not so deep-state operatives, attempted their soft-coup of an elected President. It will be just a big yawn or judicial footnote. I suspect many years from now, after all of us are long dead, some historian, yet unborn, will unearth the true monsters, or just plain bad guys and gals, during the Trump Era. But then again. Maybe not.
