Once again, I’ve been under the weather for the last few days. But, aren’t we all under the weather? Unless you’re in orbit on the International Space Station or in a plane, everyone on planet Earth is under the weather.
Anyway, I’ve been sick for the last few days. Plus, things have been a little hectic.
That being said, I wanted to write about a few stories that came out in the last couple days about the Russian Investigation. Most of them center around one main aspect that has come to light in the last week since Trump signaled he was thinking on his Hail Mary play.
The Obstruction of Justice by key members of Congress on behalf of Donald J. Trump, President of the United States.
One of the things I pointed out in Daily Check-In 12/13/2017 was that when people get desperate, they do stupid things, and leave nothing to the imagination about what side they’re on.
Politico reported earlier this week that Dipshit Cowpoke was working with a few members of the House Intelligence Committee to covertly investigate the FBI and DOJ for an “apparent bias on behalf of Clinton.” Then, on Tuesday and again yesterday, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified before them for a combined total of 15 hours. All of this is part of their campaign to smear the FBI and Justice Department.
Think about it for a second…
The FBI, one of the most conservative organizations in the world, where the vast majority of their staff around the country are registered Republicans, is biased in favor of Hilary Clinton, even though James Comey announced that her investigation was being reopened just days before the election, and was seen as the largest turning point (aside from all of the treason with Russia) as to why she lost. Then, after Trump fired Comey as head of the FBI, and used the opinion of one of his appointees, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as the official reason, Trump then admits to the nation in a televised interview that he fired Comey over the “Russia thing.” THEN, we’re supposed to believe that Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee and lifelong Republican, appointed another lifelong Republican and former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead an investigation into Trump’s connections with Russia, which has so far netted 4 arrests and 2 guilty pleas, but everyone involved with this is completely and totally biased in favor or Democrats.
That’s what they want you to believe, and they’re pumping their friends at Fox News and across Right Wing Media to make the case for them.
Of course, it has no basis in reality, and is a thinly veiled attempt at trying to discredit the investigation before it gets too close to them.
By them, I mean the members of Congress working with Trump to bury the investigation.
As more and more evidence of the White House cover-up comes out, the behavior of certain members of the House and Senate will seem unusual, erratic, or downright crazy. Like, why would Trey Gowdy, head of the House Ethics Committee, say that it doesn’t make monetary sense to investigate Trump’s White House, but thinks that Hilary Clinton’s email server deserves another look? Or, why would Devin Nunes, the recused head of the House Intelligence Committee, leak the bank records of Fusion GPS to the press? Or, why does Bob Goodlatte, the head of the House Judiciary Committee, keep asking for a second Special Counselor to investigate the Uranium One deal, but won’t life a finger to look into Flynn’s work with the Russians to set up nuclear reactors in the Middle East?
These aren’t the actions of innocent people looking for the truth, or even partisans trying to weather a political storm. No, these are the actions of guilty, complicit individuals actively taking place in a cover-up.
It’s time to name some names.
Trey Gowdy and Devin Nunes were members of the Trump Transition Team, and as it was released last week, all of their email conversations have been in the hands of the Mueller team since September. Combine that with their co-worker Mike Flynn flipping like a pancake, they’re boned.
Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, and Ron DeSantis have been in regular communication with the White House concerning strategy, and Matt and Ron recently traveled on Air Force One with Trump.
Bob Goodlatte’s retiring at the end of 2018, and is just one of many Republicans leaving the House. This supposedly also includes Speaker Paul Ryan, who has been rumored to have been caught on SIGINT discussing details of getting Russian Money into the Republican National Committee. Here’s a little walkthrough on what’s known so far.
So, we’re now at the point that the Republicans in Congress, an equal branch of the government, are playing henchmen to the wannabe dictator, and are actively trying to block any chance of doing their duty to the Constitution or the people of this country. And this is before the next round of indictments come raining down.
Which leads us to, who’s next?
Reports are circulating on the Rumor Mill that McGahn, Preibs, and Spicer are each in some deep shit, and at least two of them are working on plea deals. Jared and Ivanka have been extremely quiet recently, as have the rest of the lucky sperm club. Bannon and Corey have been requested to testify before the House Intel Committee in January. And, now that Trump has signed the Tax Bill, there’s some debate about whether or not he has outlived his usefulness to the GOP. They might protect him out of self-defense like I mentioned above, but they know that, as things stand right now, 2018 will be a bloodbath at the polls. If they don’t dump Trump before too long, they’ll go down with him.
That’s it for right now. I’m not sure when I’ll be back to writing on a normal schedule. It might be as soon as next week. Like I said, I have a couple stories I want to write before the end of the year that are more meta than anything else.
Thank you, and have a good one.
