Something is coming.
Robbie Mook was hillary clinton’s campaign manager for last year’s election. During that campaign he called Trump a “Russian puppet.” and since the election Mook has been assailing Trump virtually every week. Then things suddenly changed.
It was recently revealed that it was the Clinton campaign and the DNC which hired Fusion GPS to collect dirt on Trump which came directly from the Kremlin. Marc Elias, Clinton campaign lawyer who hired Fusion GPS, “vigorously” denied doing so for a year. Fusion GPS worked to smear both Donald Trump for hillary and the DNC and worked to smear Sergei Magnitsky for Putin. The irony is thick.
Then we learn that it was Mook himself who directed the Clinton campaign legal team to hire Fusion GPS:
Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Friday that he instructed the campaign’s legal team to conduct the opposition research that led to the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Mook also suggested that he and others on the campaign were briefed on some of the findings in the dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.
Mook did say that he was not aware that Steele was involved in the opposition research.
Then we learn that hillary rigged the primary elections:
The fix was in after all.
Last year’s presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was rigged by the Democratic National Committee – just as Sanders’ supporters suspected – to hand the nomination to Clinton, according to a bombshell claim by Donna Brazile. The onetime Clinton confidante, CNN commentator and former interim party boss made the explosive claim Thursday while touting a new book that could sever her ties to Team Clinton for good.
“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested,” Brazile wrote in a piece for Politico Magazine.
Gregg Jarrett of Fox News says this could be a criminal action:
The Federal Election Commission must immediately launch an investigation. So, too, must the Department of Justice and the FBI. It appears that Clinton may well have violated several laws which could constitute serious crimes.
First, federal law sets strict limits on campaign contributions. Financial records must now be subpoenaed to determine whether these laws were broken. Given Clinton’s past record of shady transactions such as the Whitewater land deal and her sale of cattle futures, there is a strong chance that a document trail will lead investigators to multiple violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act.
Second, if Brazile’s account of Clinton’s artifice is true, it is likely that campaign finance reporting laws were broken under the same Act. Hiding campaign money through false or misleading campaign reports is illegal. In egregious cases it is a crime, not just a civil penalty.
Finally, the funneling of campaign funds from one source to another smacks of money laundering. Any transaction that seeks to conceal or disguise proceeds of illegal activity constitutes money laundering. So, if it can be shown that Clinton violated campaign contribution limits or reporting requirements, then the channeling of the proceeds from one source to another would be the “laundering” of it.
Then all of a sudden Mook wants to turn the page:
Robby Mook, former 2016 campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, spoke with Anderson Cooper tonight about revelations in Donna Brazile‘s book about the DNC nomination process.
Cooper pressed him on how the people on the Sanders campaign “believe that things were rigged against them.” Mook responded, “I think it’s dangerous to say this contest was rigged for the following reason.”
He went on to say that Democrats can’t be “fighting each other” and even claimed, “The idea that the DNC could rig a contest frankly is laughable.”
Cooper told Mook tonight it seemed like Brazile was “more than happy to cozy up to the Clinton campaign,” but now she has a book to sell and may be trying to “spin… this yarn.” (He also mentioned that infamous town hall question Brazile leaked to the Clinton camp.)
Mook again said he doesn’t want to re-litigate the past, telling Cooper, “We’ve got to move beyond 2016.”
That is really interesting. After all the whining and hand wringing, Mook wants to turn the page. There has to be a reason for this abrupt change of face. It is likely that investigations are getting close to the hillary campaign and Mook is feeling the heat from the sunshine of truth.
We’re getting close to something.
