Lots of blather lately about “Russian interference” in the last election. I haven’t been impressed by anything I’ve seen about it, but even if it’s true, what does it amount to? Some crap on social media, which I ignore anyway? Also, the US has interfered in lots of elections (Iran, Ukraine, Nicaragua, Chile, Guatemala to name a few). No, I think the real news (ignored by the corrupt MSM, of course) is the use of the DOJ/FBI and the IRS (remember Lois Lerner?) for partisan political purposes during the last administration. And what ever happened to the Russian uranium deal, the allegations of quid pro quo and the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s use of non-secure emails for classified material (which is not just careless, but a crime)? Does anybody remember that stuff?

  2. We just found out last week that the FBI (well Comey) lied about reviewing those Clinton emails right before the 2016 election, and NOW we find out that the FBI, as a routine matter, generated their own evidence in order to get FISA warrants by leaking news stories, then using those same stories as a pretext. Sorry, but at this point I think it’s obvious that the FBI needs to be broken up. You can’t have the nation’s chief law enforcement agency behave this lawlessly.

    • Davis was the source for some bullshit (I forget what and it doesn’t matter, b******* is

  3. One thing which I think crooked Mueller is guilty of is parallel construction.

    That is where illegal spying occurs to find some wrongdoing. Next, there is an effort to “discover” evidence in a legal way that can be presented in court.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_construction

    Of course, this is a total violation of the fourth amendment, which says that anything found through an illegal search is not admissible. So they pretend to ‘discover’ it through legal means, but that of course is a lie because that is not how it was discovered. For example, apparently Air-Force One was illegally tapped. They will actually know exactly what Trump said and can catch him in any inaccuracy, but they can pretend that they got it from someone’s testimony.

    This is rotten practice.

    “The exclusionary rule is one way the amendment is enforced. Established in Weeks v. United States (1914), this rule holds that evidence obtained as a result of a Fourth Amendment violation is generally inadmissible at criminal trials. Evidence discovered as a later result of an illegal search may also be inadmissible as “fruit of the poisonous tree”, unless it inevitably would have been discovered by legal means.”

    Of course the whole Mueller investigation is fruit of a poisonous tree since the whole way it got started is illegal.

  4. The MSM and the Democratic party (but I repeat myself) are attempting a coup. They are trying to destroy the President, and take everybody who has ever been associated with him (Cohen, Manafort) down with him. It reminds me of purges in Communist-controlled countries. Jailing your political enemies. It’s really creepy.

  5. An interesting consequence of this collusion nonsense is that it’s protecting the deep state from having their real scandals investigated and prosecuted. As long as Mueller is investigating, Sessions and Rosenstein can’t be removed without drawing an obstruction charge, And they haven’t moved a whisker towards investigating the deep state’s shenanigans. In other words, the Mueller investigation is not only undermining the Trump administration it’s also blocking any investigation into themselves..

    • Indeed. The Mueller investigation has been a roadblock to uncovering the real corruption. Best defense is a good offense and all that — Smart play by the villains of the piece.

      Nevertheless, we’re finally starting to see people catching on that FISA has been a scam all this time, that the FBI has been acting as the enforcement arm of the deep state, with congressional, DOJ, and federal judiciary all complicit in crimes against the American people.

  6. And yet you’ll see tweets about longing for the days of the Obama administration, where the biggest scandal was Obama wearing a tan suit. It’s like Scott Adams says, we’re watching two different movies.

    Except that, so far, it’s only people in Trump’s orbit going to jail. For the movies to converge into one, some people on the other side will need to be in bracelets.

  7. And the stuff you mentioned is nothing compared to the stuff FDR and his commie minions pulled and got away with. Media opponents fired. Congress stonewalled and bypassed. Sensitive public records of critical events, like records of the Tehran Conference, destroyed. Burying and stonewalling the truth about our entry into WWII and our refusal to meet Japanese peace envoys. Massive lying and propaganda to get us into a war benefitting the Soviets.

    Roosevelt’s Admin was a very dark time for this country and the world. The only silver lining was his border policy.

    The longer it takes for something to be done about this stuff, the more I ask myself; “are my beliefs about this justified or am I just as biased as the Democrats?”
