At this point it’s pretty much certain that Andrew McCabe opened a Counter Intelligence investigation into Donald Trump in retribution for firing James Comey. James Baker has admitted that the FBI came to suspect that Trump was a Russian asset. Or so he says.
To believe that you have to believe that Trump meant to shut down the Russian investigation, which he did not do and which did not happen.
I used to believe the FBI was a great, untarnished and respectable law enforcement organization.
The leadership is either full of crap or is imbecilic. Take your pick. To wit: the FBI was said to be investigating Trump for his call to Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
As some friends of mine would say, “for f**k’s sake.” Can the FBI leadership be that stupid? Really?
If you’re a candidate for President and you really want the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton (which they most likely did given her gross negligence) would you ask the Russians to do it in front of a million reporters and on live TV?
Only Gomer Pyle would buy into that. Or a democrat.
James Comey was partisan. He was overtly political. He let Hillary skate and he deceived the President of the United States (Telling Trump numerous times he was not under investigation). He lied to Congress repeatedly about exonerating Hillary before her interview. He leaked confidential information. He was insubordinate.
And for nine months he couldn’t find a thing on Trump. He richly deserved being fired. His pals at the FBI didn’t like that so they decided to become an autonomous agency outside the control of the DOJ and US government and opened an investigation into the President of the United States.
But here’s the thing. If they could open a CI investigation for this kind of flimsy grounds, what about some real solid basis for doing so when it involved others?
For example, Barack Obama promised Vladimir Putin that he (Obama) would be more flexible for Putin after the 2012 election.
More flexible for Vlad? That sounds pretty serious to me. it sounds as though Obama was acting as a Russian asset! One of the first things he did as President was pull the missile shield from Poland to please Putin.
Did a single democrat find that objectionable? Did the FBI think a CI investigation was called for?
In 2010, while his wife was Secretary of State, Bill Clinton went to Vladimir Putin’s home in Russia. The next day Clinton gives a cup of coffee speech and walks away with $500,000. Since they file taxes jointly, that means the money effectively went into her pocket as well.
The next thing you know, $140 million flows into the Clinton Foundation and 20% control of US uranium falls into the hands of Vladimir Putin.
Sounds a lot like the Clinton’s were acting as Russian lobbyists- Russian assets.
Did the FBI think a CI investigation was called for?
Despite the concrete evidence that Obama and the Clinton’s were truly acting on behalf of Putin and Russia, the FBI had no interest. So who was the Director of the FBI at that time?
And there ya go.
